Our Post-Engagement Party Brunch!

My last post about quiche reminded me that I never shared the pictures from the beautiful post-engagement party brunch that Rami's parents hosted for us the day after the party! I know it's been a few weeks since it happened, but I want to post about all our wedding-related festivities so I'll always be able to look back and remember them :)

Rami's parents invited all of our family members and out-of-town guests to their home the next day - it was so nice to relax in a smaller group, especially with the visitors. The night before was a total blur so it was fun to just sit and chat! How cute is this Paperless Post invitation inviting everyone to continue the celebration? It tied into our black & gold invitations perfectly.

Now onto the food. Have you ever seen anything so freaking gorgeous in your entire life?! I swear, when R's mom said "brunch", I was picturing bagels and cream cheese, not an entire table full of the most delicious breakfast foods in the world. We're talking three different kinds of frittatas, bruschetta, breads and crackers, fruit salad, tomato buratta caprese, veggie platters, and no less than 15 different kinds of cheeses. I'm not kidding.

Oh, and a make-your-own-crepe station! Insanity. Not pictured: the chef making them hot off the griddle! The bride enjoyed a nutella & raspberry crepe, thankyouverymuch, and the groom tried to eat half of it :)

The Arizona crew ate so much at lunch we had to retire to the front yard to walk it off... and take pictures while goofing off :)

Members from both sides of the family had January birthdays, so we celebrated with one big cake for everyone - so nice!

R and the mamas:

Speaking of mamas, this is a cute pic - Ram's grandma and mom, my grandma and mom, and me smack dab in the middle!

Apparently there was an important football game going on that day, so everyone crowded into the den to watch. #sport 

Me and the Bean. And her Chanel. 

Posing with the Mr. & Mrs. balloon with my man. I can't believe I am going to be a Mrs!!!!
