Our Engagement Party

Almost a year later, but I’m finally sharing some photos from my beautiful engagement party. It was a warm and sunny day, with even a short shower later in the evening, but nothing could put a damper on this special celebration.

Every beautiful wooden decoration was built by my fiance and dad. The backdrop, the bar, the tree trunk center pieces, the “she said yes” sign, the chalkboard sign and the food display. The delicious southern fare was cooked and baked by my amazing mom. The brisket, honey-glazed ham, cornbread, pies and cakes. It was everything I could have imagined it to be, with the people who mean the most to my fiance and I.

I loved how we mixed and matched these little cuties in hand-dipped gold glitter vases.Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetOn each center piece was a wooden airplane that read, “Love Is In the Air”. This symbolized out of almost eight years together, almost four of them were long distance. I rode many planes across the country just so I could plant a big one on this fella. They were the hardest years on our relationship, but our love and faith made our relationship grow in ways we never knew imaginable.

So we decided that would be a yummy treat for our guests to snack on and cute addition to the tablescape.
