Engagement Fiesta

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good. Between PR-ing at a 5k on Saturday morning and enjoying a mother’s day brunch with my in-laws, I attended my brother’s engagement party. He proposed to his fiance, Anne, back in February, and they are getting married in September. Some of Anne’s parents’ buddies wanted to throw a party for the happy couple, and they went all out!

They had cups and napkins with the bride & groom’s names.

Tables and chairs with linens and pinata centerpieces were set-up in the backyard.

These aren’t all the tables. The other ones were set up on the other side of the pool.

Dinner was catered by Mariano’s. (They are known for creating the first frozen margarita machine back in the 70’s.)

Jason Castro (from the 2008 season of American Idol) was the live entertainment. I’m not a huge AI fan, but I knew who he was. He’s got a great voice. I even downloaded one of his songs on iTunes while he was singing it. Ha!

The bride and groom looked happy the whole night. Isn’t that what really matters? Anne has great style. Just check out these shoes.

I had never been to an engagement party until now. If this is what they are all like, count me in! Have you ever been to an engagement party? Are you a Jason Castro fan? (The song of his that I downloaded is “That’s What I’m Here For.” It’s good; you should check it out!)*
