Bridal Shower part 2- Girlfriends + Gifts

posted by on 2012.07.20, under Wedding

I was highly convinced that emotions wouldn’t hit me until I walked down the aisle. BUT as soon as I walked into a room filled with my family, sister, & of course my girlfriends that I love most …I immediately started tearing up. It’s moments like these that remind me of how blessed I am. My girlfriends showered me with lots & lots of gifts, but most importantly  words of encouragement for the next chapter in my life…..

{from the smallest details that was thought out by Sara Sohn aka MommaSohn}

{little moments that last a lifetime}

From the gifts, to the stories, to “Give your best Chriselle Pose” game (yes, my bridesmaids made all the girls give me their best Chriselle pose…how embarassing!!) I was touched by how well all my girlfriends know me! The biggest joys in life comes from solid relationships & growing friendships!

Will be sharing with you little moments on the next post that were shared between my sister Janey  + my family during the shower

I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty
worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
you did, the web will be a lot more useful than
ever before.

Hi Chriselle. I was wondering, since you mentioned you were going to move into a new place with your future hubby, would you mind doing some videos/posts on the moving process, decoration, etc.? =]

Anh ( July 20, 2012 at 7:19 AM )

Once again, beautiful photos!!!
As I was slowly scrolling down each photo, when I came upon the B/W one with the 2 women sitting at the table, I stopped and thought to myself that the woman sitting next to Sara sure looks alot like Lisa Ling and sure enough it was!!
Everyone looked so pretty!! I love your D&G dress and am in love with the YSL clutch and Valentino shoes. There’s just something I love about neutrals paired with gold.

Golden Girl ( July 20, 2012 at 6:41 AM )

WHat a beautiful moment in your life! I wish you all the happiness! YOu deserve it and it looks like you truly were surrounded by such wonderful people by how beautiful these pictures captured your day! xx, Pip
