Our engagement party was such a blast! If you missed this post, we got engaged in April during our family vacation to St. John. Tim and I have been together for almost 6 years, and we are so excited to be planning our wedding.
The engagement party was at my parent’s house in Wexford, PA (outside of Pittsburgh) and we had it outside around the pool. Thankfully, the rain stopped just in time, and it was a beautiful evening with some of our favorite people! I wore this adorable white dress (linked, similar white dresses) and it was so comfy. Paired with a classic wedge, I was ready to dance the night away.
For the decor, we kept it neutral with greenery, white, and gold accents. One of the best parts was the balloon garland from Hudson Event Design! They were so great to work with and I definitely recommend adding balloons to your next party. I told them our color scheme and sent a few inspo photos, and they created displays above and beyond! My mom and I bought all of the flowers from Trader Joe’s and I arranged them on the different tables outside.
We had a caterer come and do heavy hors d’oeuvres as well as a few stationary displays, like charcuterie and Pittsburgh pirogies. 🙂 We sipped on rosé from Minuty and had cocktails flowing all night long. A sweet highlight of the night was definitely our dessert display from Mediterra. It’s my favorite bakery and cafe in PA, and they did a wonderful job with everything. We went with a vanilla/vanilla cake with raspberry filling in addition to the mini cookies, cake pops, tarts, and macarons. Everyone was raving about the cake!
It was so amazing to have a lot of our family and friends get together and celebrate. They all also got to meet Mr. Finley for the first time as an added bonus. One of my best friends also got me this adorable jacket, which I had to put on for a mini photoshoot of course. Linking similar denim jackets for you to check out. Tim and I can’t wait to celebrate on an even larger scale at the wedding! Stay tuned for more planning posts and stories. Check out a little video from the night here.
