Backyard Salem Engagement Party

Andrea and Jen were best friends and roommates in college. So, when both girls got engaged around the same time, it was only natural they plan a joint engagement party, together. Andrea is an event coordinator at Cinta Events so I knew this party was going to turn out fantastic but I had no idea just how spectacular it would be!

It was held at the private residence of Andrea's parents. Everything took place in their stunning, newly-renovated backyard. Landscaping was done, a river-side deck was built, string lights were added, and a fire-pit was constructed just for this event! Everything from the engagement invites to the signs at their engagement party were covered in beautiful coral & champagne ombre colors and also monogrammed with the two couples' initials. The couples even created their own logo to brand their joint engagement party's details. A delicious buffet was provided and each dish was hand-made by Andrea's parents. But the highlight of the party was the mimosa bar. Andrea and Daniel love making their own mimosas so, when planning their party, a fully stocked mimosa bar was a necessity. Andrea worked her magic to create the prettiest outdoor bar, with all sorts of fresh fruits and juices to make concoctions with, complete with gold-rimmed glasses and floral paper straws. And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, desserts were brought out: strawberry shortcake & brownie caramel trifles. Both were out-of-this-world delicious! Guests also enjoyed taking photos at the photo booth, playing bean-bag toss on custom heart-shaped boards, and making their own specialty s'mores by the fire pit. There were so many fun little details all around. I simply can't wait until the weddings!

Congratulations Andrea & Daniel and Jen & Cody! Thanks again for letting me photograph this gorgeous event! I adored every minute of it.
