aunt chilada’s bridal shower.

angela is near and dear to so many and it showed last saturday as more than 50 women gathered at aunt chilada’s restaurant to shower the bride-to-be with love, well-wishes and lots of domestic goods.

angela, an 11-time bridesmaid, has a signature shower “game” — the wishing candle. the gist is that you light a candle at the beginning of the shower and as each guest’s gift is being opened by the honoree, they stand up and make a “wish” for the bride’s future. after the last wish is made, the candle is blown out by the bride only to be re-lit again post-wedding in the newlyweds home that will be filled with the light of all the wishes made by loved ones.

as the wishes for angela and nick progressed, the emotions started flowing. there were sweet stories, funny moments shared, sentimental gifts and an over abundance of joy that our dear angela has met her wonderful match. angela has been there for each one of those women’s major life milestones, and it was so much fun to finally share in her excitement. it truly was a beautiful, love-filled saturday. aunt chilada – this is your year. xo

oh, ya know, just one of the gift sections.
