An Engagement Party With The Most Beautiful Sunset Colors

If you’re looking to have a cohesive look throughout your wedding and events leading up to the wedding, I always suggest having the same vendor team help you with all the pre-wedding events. It’s a great way to see them in action and get comfortable with all of your vendors; especially your photographer! So, when I saw the photos of Maya + Alexis’ engagement party, I was so excited to share them. Maya + Alexis celebrated the start of this new chapter with their closest friends and family at a family friend’s private residence in Bel-Air. I absolutely love their color design that happened to match the incredible orange and pink hues from the sunset that night. 

Bring On The Food Truck!

If you love the idea of a food truck for your wedding, but aren’t sure if it’s the right fit (or have venue restrictions), I highly recommend using a pre-wedding event as your opportunity. Your engagement party, wedding shower, or rehearsal dinner are all great options. (Like this couple who hired a food truck for their sangeet). Because honestly, who doesn’t love a good food truck? There are so many different trucks available now that can give you and your guests tons of options that might not be available in traditional catering.
