PB&J Engagement Party


Recently, one of my dearest friends called to invite us to a party.  As she started out with the conversation she choked up a bit.  As she began to speak I immediately thought she was inving us to a graduation party since they too had a senior.  

Turns out she was inviting us to her daughter's engagement party.  At this point, Julie didn't know her boyfriend was about to pop the question!  Both families were in on it and had planned everything to sheer perfection!  What a precious sign that greeted the guests.  I adore that she used the couples initials to create such a darling hashtag! #PB&J
 

Everyone arrived early and waited for the PB&J to arrive!  I am still so touched to have been included!  When Bestie P said I could photograph I thought I'd just melt right there!  Her house is beyond gorgeous!  I'll never EVER forget my first time inside her home.  There wasn't a thing I didn't adore.  She has amazing style and taste, the perfect mix of new with antiques!

Through her home there were precious touches celebrating PB&J.  The cupcakes, cookies and cake were divine!




Silver trays held bags of gourmet popcorn with the a sweet tag attached.



The celebration was catered by Taco Mama and the food was met with quite the favorable reception!  Party guests dined on tacos and all the fixings!




The happy couple arrived amid excitement, cheers and lots of hugs. Even though classes were already out at Auburn several of Julie's sorority sisters were in attendance.  She may not have known prior to driving up their street that there was going to be a party but, surely with all the cars in the area she knew something was up! 

 I couldn't adore the hash tag more!  #PB&J


Since we were outside waiting for them to arrive I snapped a few photos around her porch.  Gorgeous ya'll!!!

Lots of guests gathered here for photos!



 The bride to be's paternal grandparents were in attendance, sitting in the swing.


Even though Julie has dated Paxton for a couple of years I'd not met him until that night.  I'm a hard woman to impress, this young man moved me to tears as he told a brief tale about he knew he wanted to marry Julie early in their relationship.  His obvious love and devotion to Julie and the Lord was a blessing to all in attendance!

After Paxton spoke, Julie's grandparents stepped up, her Grandfather spoke about their 60+ year and God's blessing on their marriage, he offered up a prayer for them and truly it was a highlight of the night!

As it was pretty warm that evening I left a little early, again feeling glad to have been apart of such an incredible evening!  I've been told wedding plans are well underway and I can hardly wait till next spring when they walk down the aisle!   Now if ya'll RAVE enough maybe Bestie P will read those comments and let me photograph her house and share with all of ya'll...that would be such a treat!!!
