The Official Celebration

“The engagement party is the official celebration of your decision to spend the rest of your life with your fiance.” (from

Our dear friends, P & T, threw us an unbelievable engagement party. We had the party quite a few months after we were engaged, but who’s counting? ;) What matters is that we were surrounded by friends, family and love (& great food!). T is a chef extrordinaire & this night was no exception. She is flawless with her presentation and hostessing. If only I could be that calm and collected with all of those people in my house…

Exquisite food was enjoyed by all (T even made Mac-n-cheese bites for me :)

Mama Quiche and Sister Quiche Nen flew into town for the occasion!

Mr. Quiche & his future mother-in-law :)

Introducing two of my favorite Chicago girls, Bridesmaids C & N!

& finally, the one who made it all happen. T, thank you so much!

Mr. Quiche put together an iMovie DVD of images from the past 4 1/2 years, as well as pictures of us growing up. It was a popular feature! I loved that we were able to gather everyone together for a fun, relaxed evening. It was the perfect party for us. Did you have an engagement party? What did you do to celebrate “Will you marry me”?
