M&M Engagement Party! February 16th, 2013

With a 12 month trip planned and just getting engaged, life has been good! We held our Engagement Party at Waterview Function Centre in bicentennial park. Michael and I go running around that area so it is special to us.

We wanted our Engagement Party to be very personal and thus had both Hawaiian andIMG_3130 Croatian elements to it. As our friends and family walked in to the venue, we “lei’d” them with an Aloha and Hawaiian music in the background. It was a memorable experience as I got to show a bit of where I am from. Throughout the night the DJ mixed up Hawaiian, Croatian and of course English music!

We had a yummy main meal buffet as well as a delicious dessert buffet! We were going to get a proper “wedding cake” but decided that we wanted our favourite baked ricotta cheesecake and opted for 3 different types of cakes from one of our favourite patisserie’s. Such a good idea as it provided everyone a few options. Michael’s Kuma (God Mother) also made delicious Croatian cakes to add to the dessert buffet!

Then it was time for Michael to do his speech. He prepared and prepared for it and knew that when 9pm hit, it was showtime! He talked a bit about my past and where in America I was from. He then went onto how we met and how he proposed. He is such a great speaker and made the room laugh and tear up 🙂 I also prepared a picture slideshow through IMovie and played it throughout the night. It showed pictures of Michael and I through childhood, adolescence, adulthood and the pivotal moment of when I met the man of my dreams. It was so much fun looking back at our lives with family and friends.
