Chris and I had our engagement party this weekend and we never could have imagined the outpouring of love, excitement and genuine friendship that we had this weekend.
Nearly 40 of our closest friends (+ a little family) from all over California and all parts of our lives came together to celebrate with us and it was so much fun.
Our amazing friend (and bridesmaid!) Darci made some beautiful centerpieces and a scrapbook for people to write in. The centerpieces will be scattered throughout the LYK for at least a week and we will cherish that little book of memories forever!
Chrissy baked some of the fluffiest chocolate cupcakes ever for the party! So light and moist…perfection.
Oh and that cream cheese frosting, wow. These classy little cakes were a hit. It sure doesn’t hurt to have a maid of honor that can bake with the best of them.
Chrissy and I also had a date with each other, an almond scone, ham and cheese croissant and cappuccinos before trying on some bridesmaid dresses on Saturday morning.
Before I tortured Chrissy and Darci with trying on bridesmaid dresses for hours on Sunday, we ate a very large and delicious meal.
We had a fabulous Short Rib Hash and Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict from Burlap courtesy of our extremely generous friend Jessi!
Then we proceeded to stuff ourselves with dessert when she surprised us with a gorgeous customized dessert plate!
Lemon Grass and Coconut tapioca and carrot cake. Wow.
What an amazing weekend. Thank you to all of our friends and family who made it so memorable and special for Chris and I. We are so incredibly grateful to have you all in our lives!
