Victor and Laura had their engagement party today.
The couple met while working in Central America and both love to travel the world. Their wedding next year will be in Victor’s home country of Nicaragua, so this engagement party also served a little bit as a wedding reception for all of Laura’s Minnesota friends and family. The friends planning the event were many, as Laura and Victor are fiercely loved. A bilingual wedding brunch with a travel theme was put together at a private residence, and the details were a lovely mix of clean and vintage.
The Vintage Type provided all of the furniture pieces. The aqua dresser served as the focal point, with dark wood tables, vintage folding chairs and red leather club chairs giving a welcoming ambiance. A vintage globe, crisp white linens, and silver serving pieces filled with white hydrangea were used as decor. The Vintage Type also custom designed the crest and created the food labels. Artist, Steph Guidera designed and made the chalk board signs.
Brunch is a lovely thing. You get to mix desserts with fruits and other light foods. Chowgirls Killer Catering provided french toast bites, salmon salad on endive and deviled eggs. Croissants, fruit, and danishes were fresh and delish! Sangria, beer, and cucumber water were on hand as well as a plethora of amazing desserts from Jessica’s Cakes, who wowed everyone there with not only her attention to authentic Latin flavors, but how fantastic her desserts tasted.
Laura and Victor played the always laugh inducing shoe game, and even more laughs happened when the Gourmet Club gave them a pair of aprons embroidered with “double cities” instead of “twin cities” in Spanish.
A competitive game of croquet rounded out the afternoon full of friends, family and laughter.
Victor and Laura, it was so fantastic to be a part of this day! Enjoy your sneak peek!
