Engagement Celebration

December 20, 2013
     marks the date that our Baby Girl said yes when Mike asked her to be his wife.
February 1, 2014
     marks the date we celebrated their engagement.

Three wonderful friends of the couple helped deck out The Cottage with photos of the happy couple and all things glittery, gold, romantic and fun.  They helped with the food, hostess duties, and directing the evening.
They rocked the hostess role!

We went for an eclectic cottage mix for decor
including flowers, gold trays

and the #hashtag

Baby Girl and I both love the ampersand!

The evening was

easy going, fancy, genuine, happy, jolly, joyful, joyous, kind-hearted,
magnificent, warm-hearted, amazing, lovely,

  2. Looks like a grand celebration from the food, to the decor and ambiance. I know you had help,( you and the girls did a lovely job), but you are definately the mastermind behind it all! You never cease to amaze me.... What a wonderful memory for M & D :)
