We did an engagement party for a couple of fantastic ladies this weekend. It was held at a local pizza place in their upstairs party space. Exposed brick walls and tall ceilings and windows gave us the downtown feel that we were looking for a relaxed environment for lots of family and friends to come and help celebrate the upcoming nuptials.
We went with a purple and black theme and it was fun to do the arrangements with black ostrich feathers for a bit of flirt factor and engagement photos on the tables (taken by Felicia Marx) for guests to take home at the end of the evening. It was a great casual evening filled with lots of laughter and easy conversation.
We decided to do a lighting template on the wall as guests entered. It provided a great pop to the space and they will be able to reuse the template at any other event.
I am looking forward to wedding planning with them for their fall ceremony. Great ladies and so easy to work with.
