#MarriedMaitlands: Our Engagement Party

In late June, Chris' parents threw us an engagement party in Long Island.  We were excited to officially celebrate with family and friends.

The party was at an event hall where a delicious dinner was served before we danced the night away!  We had a small group of friends that was able to join us in celebration.

The majority of the guests were Chris's family and friends of the family.  A number of them were not going to be able to make it to our wedding in Kentucky so it was a wonderful way for them to be able to celebrate with us.  My parents and some family from upstate New York were able to attend as well.  It was great to have each of them there to celebrate as well.

We had lots of delicious cake.  Chris' mom even arranged for a beautifully decorated rum cake to be made for us.

We had so much fun celebrating our upcoming nuptials!  And of course, it was exciting to open all the gifts at the end of the night as well.
