Marc and I’s engagement party

engagement party Marc and I

Marc surprised me with a truly romantic and heartfelt proposal the week before Christmas last year. To celebrate Marc and I had our engagement party on Valentine’s Day at The Brigham in Whenuapai. We had the most fun and incredible time with our families and friends. I definitely recommend the venue for your next special birthday or even wedding.
