My aunts and my cousin hosted the luncheon, and my bridesmaids and mother attended.
My Aunt J, cousin Amelia, and me before guests arrived.
We had a wine tasting before the luncheon began.

This is when I gave them out as well!
We lunched on pimiento cheese sandwiches, chicken salad crossiants, and various salads outside by the pond.
I haven't actually mentioned this yet, but there was a 50% chance of rain both Friday and Saturday.
Everyone kept wanting me to make a decision about whether or not to move the events indoors, but I kept saying no. Everything would be fine. I'm sure my day-of coordinator wanted to strangle me, but I told her that I just had a feeling everything was going to work out. It drizzled just a tad at the luncheon, and then cleared up to be great and we were able to enjoy our lunch outside as originally planned.
I used this time to give my gifts to my girls as well.
I gave my matrons of honor Bourbon & Bowetie
bangles and my bridesmaids got a gorgeous stone bangle made by Zelle
We didn't take too many pictures at the luncheon, which I'm hating now, however, I'm glad we were disengaged from our phones/social media. These girls are seriously the best.
And Lauren did snag a shot of the front of the vineyard that we photobombed!
It was a great, relaxing, fun time and I am so grateful to my aunts for such a wonderful event! It was such a nice way to spend some time with these girls before chaos ensued. They are seriously the 10 most supportive, awesome people anyone could ask to have in their lives, and I am so lucky to have them in mine.
Up next, details about our rehearsal and after-rehearsal dinner.
And linking up with Mary
! Thank you!
