Showering Amanda With Wedding Wishes

I’ll never forget the day I met my friend, Amanda. It was in 9th grade, and we were at the Calhoun High School homecoming game. I wasn’t transferring to the school until the following year, but went to see my friend Danielle perform in the kick line. Amanda came right up to me in the bleachers and introduced herself with a friendly smile. We’ve been best friends ever since.

Her and her fiance, Adam, are getting married next month, and I am overjoyed to be in her bridal party. We’ve been in two other wedding parties together, so that makes it all the more special. It also makes me happy to know that at least one of us has moved on from the days of watching The Notebook and lamenting our singlehood. I kid, I kid.

We celebrated her impending nuptials last weekend at an English tea-themed bridal shower. From the teapot-shaped cookie favors to the beautiful vintage tea tins Keri scored for the floral arrangements, everything was perfect. The crazy good Italian food served at Piccolo’s didn’t hurt either. If you’re ever on Long Island, definitely check this place out. Here are some pictures from the day. Next up, Montauk for the bachelorette party!
