Engagement Party Pictures


I'm pretty proud of myself for remembering the pictures from our Engagement Party. I said that I would try to be better at posting pictures, and so far I'm doing pretty good!

Except, I loaded them backwards to they are a little out of order. Aaaand I just accidentally deleted one. It was a picture of a bottle of Jack Daniels and a gigantic bottle of my new favorite Yellow Tail wine. Thanks Josh & Julie for the his & hers drinks! Haha. They will come in handy over the next year...although they probably won't last a week. Well, the Jack will...the wine...welll that will last about as long as it takes me and L to drink it tonight.

Now on to the good stuff...it's pretty picture heavy, so if you are a picture stalker like me, feel free to move along.

Some swag we got:

A beautiful invitation frame from N & J. I can't wait to have our invitation and wedding picture in there...hehe wedding picture...still gets me every time.

An amazing Willow Tree Figurine. I tried to get a picture of the box, because I loved what it said, but apparently it didn't come out well.
It is called Together. And says: "For those who have found their true partner in love and life". It is perfect. L had one just like it (maybe the same one) and she put it next to her wedding cake at the reception. I love that idea!

Big A cutting the cake.

Cutting the cake together. We need all the practice we can get. Big A's mom gave us the knife her and Big A's dad used to cut their wedding cake 31 years ago. I was honored that she let us use it.

Dishing out the cake. Check the little guy in the bottom right corner. He was DYING for some cake!

Some MOH love. Me and L looking fabulous as ever!

One of the guys brought cigars, so they all went down to smoke them. Thanks Dan-O. Great pic of everyone!

The basket Big A's Aunt gave us. It has four beautifully painted wine glasses in there (Big A can't get mad because I didn't buy them they were a gift!), some champagne, potpourri, a candle. She was too sweet to give us all of that. She was the one who also got Big A the "Game Over" shirt! Too funny.

Marizzle and I. It is because of her that my hair looks so fabulous! Can't wait to see the amazing job she will do for the wedding, it pays to have a best friend who does hair!

The happy couple. We took 3 pictures like this and this is the only one that we don't have weird faces. Of course, my (older) brother and my cousin were doing bunny ears...yes apparently we still do bunny ears.

Another picture of us. I love this man. I can't believe that he will be mine forever.

Our cake. His mom was so sweet to get it in our wedding colors!

Us during the toast. When everyone came inside, it really hit me how MANY people were there to celebrate us. And I got a little teary-eyed. I was crying in this picture, I'm glad my face isn't a red mess. And check Big A's Best Man J all the way to the left. He's a great guy. I'm glad Big A has him!



And that's all I gots! N took a BUNCH of pictures and I'm so glad she did because I was running around everywhere that day. L took most of the ones on my camera. Including this last one, which is by far one of my most favorite pictures of us.


It is all starting to feel pretty real now. I'm just so happy and excited. I have a Bridal Expo this weekend, so hopefully we can cross some things off our to-do list. I was talking with Big A's Aunt and she made me feel SO much better about what we already have done. Venue, Florist, I think we have our Photographer, and we pretty much have the invitations picked out too. Although some friends have offered to make some for us, so we will see how that plays out.


Alright, I'm sure you are all gagging over there from my mushy-gushyness. Don't worry, give me 20 minutes and I'll be back to my good 'ole cynical self.

  1. Truly very nice engagement party pictures. It is really good that everyone had fun time in this bash. We are already engaged and now preparing for our wedding ceremony. We’ve just reserved one of best Malibu wedding venues. Now seeking affordable wedding catering service and decorator. Hoping to find good vendors soon!
