When taking a poll on Instagram about blog topics, a lot of you suggested to do wedding planning updates. I thought it would be fitting to start with our engagement party details!

Prior to getting engaged, we knew we wanted to have a long engagement to really embrace the special time and not rush into planning a wedding. We got engaged on October 2, 2017 and are planning our wedding for June 22, 2019. We had quite a ways to go before our big day, so we wanted to find a special way to celebrate our engagement with our family & friends. We decided to have an engagement party.
We celebrated our engagement at Maine Art Gallery on December 9, 2017 with our closest family and friends. We kept it simple with just drinks & desserts paired with music from The Hill Bros.
Because the party was happening in Kennebunkport and we live in South Portland we decided to have our wedding party & friends join us at our house and ride together in a party bus. It was the perfect way to kick off the celebrations. We asked our closest friends to be a part of our special day and toasted with champagne while dancing to our favorite throwbacks on our way to the party.

The night went by in a blink of an eye. We had such an incredible time celebrating and dancing. Here are some of our favorite images from the night.
DIY Floral Numbers: My beautiful & talented bridesmaid, Danielle, and I tackled the vision of creating our wedding date out of greenery. Because we were limited on time and wanted to reuse the numbers, we opted for artificial greenery from A.C. Moore. With the long garlands of greenery we used thick wire (to hold the shape) and thin floral wire (to hold the greenery to the wire) and then suspended from the wall with clear fishing line.
Stay tuned for more wedding planning updates.
