The Shower!!

These pictures are from the bridal shower that Cheryl (Karen's sister and the Matron of Honor) hosted at her home in East Hartford, CT. Cheryl and Grace, her assistant, outdid themselves with cute centerpieces, yummy (homemade) food, and even a trivia game about Brian that filled Karen's mouth up with bubblegum! Thank you to everyone who made it such a special and memorable day.
