3 In Events

a SHOT at love // engagement party

The events leading up to a wedding create this sense of anticipation. They capture the initial bliss of engagement and make that last through to the wedding day. Every party or shower or get-together takes the couple one step closer to marriage. 
This past weekend was the kickoff event for my sister and her fiancĂ©. 
When I plan an event, I mentally have to lock down a theme. This doesn’t mean that the theme has to be cheesy or even obvious; but for my peace of mind I need something to tie it all together. Their engagement party took on the theme of “A Shot at Love.” This gave the night a tone of edgy sweetness. With desserts and appetizers in shot glasses, a well-stocked bar, and ten gallons of blackberry sangria, the evening went off without a hitch. 
Here’s a glimpse of their happiness. xx
