The couple met last year on Memorial weekend so it was only fitting that their engagment party was held the same weekend, as will their wedding next Memorial weekend 2013 in Napa Valley.
The party was centered around their love timeline: celebrating their past, present and future. We were inspired by a country staple, the mason jar, and incorporated it in the invitations, centerpieces, favors and guestbook. (Check out the oversized mason jar guestbook below!) The decor was casual and simple, but just enough to set it apart from your typical Memorial Day BBQ.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
