The Cafe | A Night at Jcrew | Sneek Peak!

  • Featured | The Bride's Cafe

Last night I had the privilege of hanging out with the fabulous Janie Medley of the Brides Cafe as she hosted a night of shopping at the Shortpump Jcrew. I spent too much $$ but I loved being there! I ALSO had the privilege of meeting my friends Jodi and Kurt!  That’s right, we were friends before we met…Jodi and I have emailed on several occasions and have tried to meet up but it just never happened…until last night!

I cannot wait to see how their wedding turns out!

Imagine that.  So after Michael proposed and we started planning, I  immediately wanted to find my earrings for the wedding! I mean, I bought my dress 4 days after I was engaged… why wait for the jewelry right!? (I was a little excited!)  I searched everywhere. I had a picture of what I wanted in my head… but I just couldn’t find it. I checked every where… even online. So I decided to be patient and just wait for the right ones to comes along.  Sure enough, less than…
