One of our couples, Porter and Hallie got engaged in March (after catching both the bouquet and garter at a wedding 11 days before!) and asked us to plan their wedding, bridal shower, bachelorette and engagement parties.
First up was the engagement party.Porter and Hallie are a laid back, fun loving couple, who share a love of FSU and football.  They wanted something super casual (think: backyard BBQ) for their engagement party, and since their party happened to fall on the same day as the Florida State spring game, we decided to go with a Garnet & Gold themed Spring Tailgate Party.Decorations were simple and football themed:

Surprises for the couple :)
For entertainment there was cornhole, beer pong and assorted drinking games. Food was typical tailgate fare: burgers, hot dogs, chips and dip.  There was also some less typical tailgate food, with pepperoni rolls and red velvet cake (both homemade by Southern Elegance Events).

There weren’t as many pictures of this event, since we were busy keeping the food going and making sure everyone was having fun, but we succeeded in making sure the couple and their friends had a great time!!
Keep your eyes peeled for more of this couple!
