Allan & Allie Engagement Party

This past August, Allan and I threw an engagement party for our friends and family at my parents’ house here in Vancouver. It was a blast to see all our family and friends together in one place! Here is a photo of Allan and I with my parents who were hosting the party.

It was so nice to share this special day with close friends.

My parents completely transformed their backyard… it tooks months of cleaning and clearing to get all the junk and vegetable/fruit plots out of the garden and make it suitable for a garden party. We also put up a tent and put a bunch of patio furniture out for the party.

I love this photo of all my girl friends from high school (and Allan) :)

We were blessed to have a few of them fly in from out of town! We’re still friends after all these years, and some of them I am even friends with from elementary school!

I created a drink list for the party. My favourite was the strawberry rhubarb gin fizz which I made with a fresh fruit puree.

I also served my signature drink, which is an iced watermelon mojito.

My mom and dad and cousin made all the food for the party from scratch! I really couldn’t believe what an amazing spread they put out.
