Our Engagement Party

Since Steve lives in Colorado and finding a free weekend for him to come home is near impossible, you can imagine just how hard it was to secure a date for an engagement party that worked for Steven, me, my family, his family and our wedding party...who all live out of town. We almost ruled the idea out all together but five months after our engagement in May, we finally found a date that worked for almost everyone! Celebrating such a huge life event with all the people we love most (minus a few key friends) was magical, and we will keep the memory of that night close to our hearts always.

The night was filled with laughter and love, along with good conversation, food and drinks! Steve loves Old Fashioneds and I'm a white wine fan myself, so our bar was stocked with a homemade, autumn-inspired sangria and a make-your-own Old Fashioned station! 

True to form, my momma created two gorgeous fall tablescapes that were just the right touch of rustic for the appetizer and buffet tables, and my aunt made the most delicious, amazing, beautiful, tasty, stunning, incredible (I could go on for days) spice and maple cake with salted caramel drizzle ever! She is so talented and we were all blown away. 

The party was the absolute best way to kick off the post-engagement, pre-wedding celebrations! We're so lucky to have all these people in our lives who love and support us. It's crazy to think that the next time everyone is together will be at the wedding! Only four and a half months away from the big day (cue panic attack)!!

A special thanks to my cute cousin Kelsea for being the photographer for the night! We forgot to get a picture of the whole wedding party because sometimes life is just like that ha!
