Brandi's Seaside Brunch Bridal Shower was this past weekend, and it was absolutely perfect! If you know anything about Brandi, you know she loves the beach! Even before Tyler popped the big question on a family vacation in North Myrtle Beach, SC almost two years ago, Brandi was beach-obsessed. If the girl can hear the sound of the ocean and have her toes in the sand, she's the happiest thing in the world! I am not kidding when I say the girl can swim and sit in the sun all day long. (She comes to visit me up under the beach umbrella when it's time to hydrate and grab some Chex mix or muddy buddy mix. Ha!) Given we couldn't have the shower at the beach, we brought the beach to her, and her beach-lovin' heart was full. The smile on her face throughout the day said it all!
With the brunch theme, we knew we had to throw in her favorite breakfast food -- biscuits and sausage gravy! (A huge thanks to her mom for that!) And what brunch is complete without a mimosa bar?! Casseroles (thanks to her future mother-in-law), pastries, and a build your own parfait station completed the ensemble! Oh, and cake. You can't forget the cake. It was a beautiful beach-themed cake that was incredibly delicious!
The decorations were as cute as could be, too! And of course, photos from their beach engagement session fit right in. All of the details came together beautifully, and Brandi loved it all!
From family to longtime friends, and from fellow coaches' wives to colleagues, Brandi was gifted with some of the most amazing gifts. In true Brandi fashion, she went home and put away, hung up, etc. all of her gifts.
All in all, it took a village to put on this amazing event in honor of Brandi! With her bridal party, mom, and future mother-in-law involved, it ended up being perfect in every single way!
For Grant and I, the fun didn't end on Saturday. We actually met up with Brandi and her mom the following day for her bridal portraits. I'm not gonna lie, it is killing us to keep those photos to ourselves until after the wedding. You can guarantee that I'll be racing to share that blog post a day or two after Brandi and Tyler's July 13th wedding!
Until then, enjoy scrolling through some photos of the shower and just imagine the gorgeous bride Brandi will be!

Brandi had decided that she didn't want to see the space or know the details of the shower, until she arrived just a bit before the shower began! Here's her first reaction to seeing everything!
But first....mimosas! No shower brunch is complete without a mimosa bar!
Brandi was given a vacuum that is compatible with Alexa. WHAT?! (Y'all, my birthday is November 17th, and my Alexa said she wants one of these at my house.)
Brandi's crew -- We can't wait to stand by her side on her big day!
