My Sister’s Stagette

With Whitney and Manolo’s engagement interrupted and extended by a 13 month immigration-forced hiatus for the groom, this celebration was a long time coming ;) Six of us girls snuck away for a two night getaway to Whidbey Island for my sister’s stagette last month. We rented a gorgeous house by the water and while the weather wasn’t exactly the beach weather we had hoped for, a great time was had by all. I went knowing that at 39 weeks pregnant, baby could decide to crash the party, but gratefully, he let this mama-t0-be celebrate with the girls.

I love the colors Whitney chose for their wedding! And I was super excited to find this tassel garland in those colors on Etsy.

Whitney is trained in baking & pastry so we decided to have our own little wedding cake decorating contest in teams of two…

We put the vote to Instagram and fittingly enough, the bride won!

Then we had a little fun with the bride – gave her an eye mask, a hefty glass of wine (or two) and another cake to decorate…

Thanks for the fun, girls! And cheers to Whitney becoming Mrs Artime in a little over one month! xo
