Josh and I celebrated our engagement at The Cheese School/Stable Cafe on Sept 21, 2017, which is exactly 1 year and 1 day from our wedding day! It was easy to decide where to have our engagement party since we fell in love with the venue and knew it fit us, our style, and vision. Their staff was also beyond amazing and made planning our engagement party so easy and exciting. We were thrilled with how everything turned out and the event set the right tone and vibe for how we wanted to celebrate this new chapter in our lives. I highly recommend the Stable Cafe for those looking to throw an intimate event including weddings, bridal showers, birthdays, etc. It’s worth it.
For our invitations we went the digital route and used Paperless Post. They have a ton of great design options and it was so easy to use. Our guests loved how easy it was to RSVP and the fun animation of feeling like they were actually opening up a letter. Some of my favorite designs include their Sonora invite (cactus themed of course), the Markham photo card (I love a good full-bleed photo background), and their cards designed by Kelly Wearstler (she’s one of my favorite interior designers). I highly recommend using them if you’re looking to send digital invites for any occasion!
All in all, if you were to ask what my favorite part about the engagement party was, it was having everyone who means the most to us in one place. We wanted to celebrate this special time with our closest friends and family who helped shape us into who we are today. We wouldn’t be here without you guys and can’t wait to celebrate our wedding next year in the desert! This is just the beginning for #PylesFindsTheYun! Thanks for following along our journey!
