a bridal brunch

This past weekend my best friend got married! While I do have a few photos from the weekend's festivities, I decided to wait to do a full recap until we have our professional photos back from Sara Jayne! I do, however, have photos from the Bridal Brunch my mom and I hosted to kick off the wedding weekend. I'd only been to one Bridal Brunch in the past, for my sister-in-law, and absolutely loved it. It's intended for just the bride, her bridesmaids, her mom and her mother-in-law-to-be. It's nothing more than a lovely reason to celebrate the bride and the women closest to her and start the wedding weekend off on a happy and excited foot. 

We decided to go with a girly pink, white and silver color scheme which really came together nicely. The menu we wanted to keep light, since everybody had to be in a bridesmaid dress the next day. So we did a build your own salad bar with a variety of fresh toppings, dressings and lemon oregano chicken along with fresh fruit. We also, of course, had a mimosa bar! And for dessert some lovely vanilla buttercream cupcakes made by yours truly. Two of our gorgeous ladies are gluten free, so it was my first experience baking with a gluten free flour blend, but I've got to say it may be my new go to! The cupcakes were delicious!
