The Engagement Party

First of all, I have the best family and friends anyone could ask for. Secondly, they get better and better (if that is possible).

Mom and Dad offered wanted to throw an engagement party for Doug and I. My aunt offered to host it at her house in New Orleans and Ashley assisted them all in planning the event. The actual party happened this past Friday night and it WAS AMAZING.

I am still collecting pictures, but here are a few from Amanda’s camera:

The parents finally meet!! My parents finally met Doug’s mom and Steve! IMG_2464

The food was phenomenal! Great job Mom, Dad, Aunt Donna, and Aunt Gina! You really outdid yourselves!



We did manage to get 5 of the 8 bridesmaids at the party for a picture (and some silliness)


My Dad also did a great job welcoming Doug into the family and thanking all the hosts. He toasted Doug and I’s future nuptials. It was very sweet. Smile


The night was a success. I had many of my close friends and family there to celebrate with me. Thank you to everyone involved. I love you!

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
