Over the Weekend, She's Adding the E!

Over the Weekend I helped host an engagement party for two of my dear friends, Ashton and Ryan. I've known Ashton since birth, and Ryan was one of the first people I met when I moved here to DC. So I couldn't be happier that two of my best friends will be tying the knot!

To help celebrate their engagement, several of us got together to organize a night to remember at one of our favorite places in the city, Mission DuPont. They had the whole top floor reserved for us, tables setup for food and cookies, and plenty of space for the 70+ guests. Almost everyone that Ashton and Ryan knows in this city attended the party. We all enjoyed some great chips and salsa, delicious margaritas and melt in your mouth cookies. Guests signed their well wishes for the couple on photo mats, that my friend Alex then framed with photos from their engagement.

One of my favorite aspects of the event were the cookies that we had made from Monumental Sweets. Brie, the creator and baker behind these amazingly delicious creations, owns her own cookie business right here in Washington, D.C. Brie pretty much had free reign on the design of the cookies, but I gave her a few details about the couple. I mean the end result was just wonderful. Everyone at the party raved about the cookies, so much so that no one wanted to eat them, ha! Brie hand does every single cookie, and has an entire arsenal of designs she can create. Please checkout her Facebook page and reach out to her for your next event if you're in the area! Trust me, these Monumental Sweets will definitely make a great impression with everyone at your gathering!

The evening's hosts with the Future Mr. and Mrs. Davies!!
