Oh what an engagement party it was! ... even if I do say so myself!
We wanted to celebrate our recent engagement by the water and in the warmth of the sun, and oh my gosh we got warm... it was a boiling hot day (so set up was kinda mad/sweaty/hot) but as you’ll see below, it was all worth it!
As we already knew we wanted a small, intimate wedding day, we opted to fulfil our party vibe needs with a big & festive celebration for our engagement party.
Matteo - the love of my life and the best person I’ve ever met - was a massive help with all the setup and planning and so was his beautiful family, it really was a labour of love for this party to come together.
Matteo & I both LOVE margaritas & tacos, so having a taco bar and cocktails were a no-brainer.
We also had a 7 piece band (who were AMAZING), beautiful summer inspired furnishings and decor & of course a floral installation by the bar. My team and freelances were amazing and worked so hard to make this happen.
After the band left, our doggo Cooper came in for entertainment - he was a real hit! haha!
My beautiful & super talented photographer (and now friend), Lana Ivanova captured everything perfectly. She'll also be coming to Byron Bay to shoot our wedding in July!
