My Bridal Shower

My bridesmaids threw me the ultimate bridal shower that included all of my favorite things. The shower photographed by Kate-E Frazier Photography. I had an intimate shower at one of my bridesmaid's houses. All of my close friends and family members were there to help celebrate and get ready for the big day. For cocktails, we had grapefruit gimlets. They're an old favorite of mine from a restaurant I love in Columbus, OH—Martini.

To make your own gimlet:

1.5 ounces of Grapefruit Vodka

2.0 ounces of fresh grapefruit juice

0.5 ounces of fresh lime juice

0.25 ounces of Aperol

0.5 ounces of simple syrup

Garnish: lime slice

Yummy dessert bar including Georgetown Cupcakes, homemade lemon squares and delicious macaroons.
