An Engagement Celebration

Since Travis and I are having an engagement that is longer than one year, we wanted to have a little engagement celebration on the weekend exactly one year before our wedding. My parents hosted the dinner and we kept the guest list really small; wedding party (+ significant others) and immediate family only. I had ordered this dress, as mentioned in my budget post, but it wasn't very flattering, so I decided to dig through the dresses I already had, instead. 

Here are a few photos from our night:

I was totally shocked by how decorated the house was. My bridesmaids had all helped my mom with decorations and dessert, and it totally made the night. Travis couldn't stop talking about how much fun he had the whole way home, which makes me even more excited for how much fun we'll both have on the actual wedding. Only 361 days to go!
