Shake It Off

Throwing an engagement party at someone’s house, in this case my families, is a bit stressful.
You need about a million hands to help, 10 extra hours than you have, and the ability to not have a meltdown five minutes before it starts.
My beautiful mother has always had the dream of opening her own wedding business.
We would take care of the catering, decorations, photography, venue, you name it, we got it covered.
So my sisters engagement party was the first time for our mom to really have a chance with all that.

And it was fabulous.
The weather was breezy and windy, and then rainy, dreary, and chilly-however when you start questioning the bad karma brought upon you when it starts pouring on your weeks worth of engagement party preparation, just breath, motion your guests towards the tents, and laugh while you pour yourself a glass of wine.

My mother thought of everything, I know I’m bias but a wedding magazine easily could (and SHOULD) have photographed and documented the party.
Between the 7 different types of homemade soups, signature cocktails, bonfire pits, hay stack seating, and crisp autumn leaves blowing around in the cool air, it was picture perfect.
