I joke that I have been trying to get my friend, Teri pregnant for years! The time has finally come, as she and Danny are expecting their first bundle of joy in November. They aren’t going to find out the gender so it’s been incredibly hard to contain myself from indulging in girl clothes (that’s my guess!) and tons of pink and purple shenanigans. And even though it’s killing me not to know, I’m super proud of them for sticking to their guns and doing this their way.
This past Saturday, our mutual friend Rachel, owner of Outstanding Occasions and event planner extraordinaire, hosted the most magical baby shower at her home. Rachel went over the top to ensure every little detail was as beautiful and as personal as the next. It was the perfect afternoon to celebrate one of the coolest couples we know. If you are fortunate enough to know Danny and Teri then you know their baby is going to be one lucky girl. Or, boy.
Below are a few photos I captured from Teri’s special day.
One proud dad-to-be!
Meet Rachel. She put on such a wonderful event – I have no idea how she did it, while keeping up with her 10-month-old son at home, but that’s why we call moms like this, Super Moms.
It was a One Hope Wine kind of day. I love One Hope (mostly because I’m drinking for a great cause – check out more here) but I had no idea they make Champagne too. Until this moment, that is. Thanks to Colby for making sure our glasses were always half full.
Can we pause and just look at how BEAUTIFUL this mama is? She is seriously glowing from the inside out. I was secretly hoping she’d be just like me … gain 60lbs, have stretch marks, horrible cravings and super swollen ankles so we could talk about how much pregnancy sucked together later … but, that’s not the case. Proof in the fact that her ankles are perfect and that’s not even a maternity dress. I sigh.
Once an Alpha Phi, always an Alpha Phi. Rosé all day for us.
T – I am so incredibly happy for you. You and Danny are going to be amazing parents! Ryan and I can’t wait to get our hands on your little one, we love you both so much. Congratulations, friend!
