Celebrating Val

All of Val's bridesmaids hosted a celebration last night in honor of the bride-to-be!  This was such a great idea!  It was kind of a "kick off" for the wedding festivities, and we also measured all the bridesmaids so that when Val picks a dress she has all the information that she needs.  This is a brilliant idea!  Speaking from experience at Kiss the bride, the hardest thing for a bride to do is track down all her bridesmaids for measurements.  There were always a few procrastinators who held up the dress order!  Keri hosted the party at her house, and it was perfect.
The beautiful Fillion's, and one soon to be LaHood!
I love this picture of the two "big" sisters, Sally and Layton.
They were trying to establish a wireless connection so that Allsion, who is living in Japan for a year, could Skype and be at the party.
The bridesmaids gave her champagne flutes to toast at the wedding.  Such a sweet idea!
Because Allison could not be here, she sent these fans from Japan.  They are so cute!  Notice Val's fan is all white for the bride!!
Mimi and all the girls, except for Miss Maddie.  She was at home asleep.
I could not leave this picture out!  One of my new favorites♥

Val has such a great group of friends.  I told her last night I was honored to be a part of the group, and to be able to be a part of the wedding.  I am looking forward to the next six months of fun!

Last night was so much fun! When Val opened the crystal champagne flutes it made me tear up to think Matt and Val will use them at their wedding. Couldn't be happier that I will have a new daughter-in-love! I love Val!
