Oh, Darling, Let's Celebrate: An Audrey Hepburn-Themed Bridal Shower

I know. I've been a naughty Knottie.

But I think I have a good excuse. I've been so caught in my wedding/honeymoon and friends' weddings that I've neglected you! So now I will slowly share the details of our big day on April 23, and the memorable events leading up to it...

First, thanks to my mother and Maid of Honor, Heather, my bridal shower, which was held on March 5, was as detail-oriented and person as a cute little wedding! It was a perfect reflection of my personality and love for all things vintage...and Audrey Hepburn. Guests were encouraged to dress in their best Audrey Hepburn/Breakfast at Tiffany's attire to the Library at the Darlington House in Washington, D.C. The whole thing was a surprise to me! The theme was inspired by my Audrey Hepburn-themed home office. Heather even nabbed a few of my accessories out of my house the day before without my knowledge!

The decor is elegant and feminine, the girls are awesome and my photographer, Brooke Bready, was fabulous as usual.

So, darling, check these out!
