love to see my couples have as much fun as possible during their celebrations .  What could be more fun than a Star Wars themed engagement party. Alyssa surprised her fiance Jonathan with Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers; they siege the place and took everyone hostage.

Alyssa and Jonathan decided that instead of doing a traditional wedding they would do a destination elopement instead. Before their elopement though, they also wanted to throw a party with their friends and family to celebrate their engagement. Alyssa planned the party perfectly including the surprise she gave Jonathan. A lot of love and dedication went into the planning of this party. It was truly a celebration of friends and family. This really said a lot about who they are as individuals and as a couple.

Their engagement party was a combination of different stations with games and attractions that fit their personality perfectly; they even wore Mickey and Minnie matching Disney hats.  It was truly a ton of fun for everyone who attended. They had all kinds of fun ideas; there was a map of the world and pins so everyone could pick where they should go on their honeymoon, which of course meant that they were sent off to Antartica and other extreme places in the planet several times. There was a photo booth, polaroids, fake tattoo station and even Legos to build their dream home. In addition, there were card games and a Mario Kart tournament where the top three people were awarded with metals. They catered some great food, desserts topped with characters from Jurassic Park and a even a Coffee Bar with baristas.

They hosted the party at The Artist Loft 66 in Largo, Florida where Alyssa shares a photography studio with other talented photographers and artists. Alyssa thought of every detail from the traditional things to posters of their favorite movies including Star Wars, of course. It was a sweet celebration and it really showed how caring Alyssa and Jonathan are with everyone in their circle and how much they are loved.

I am looking forward to their elopement in Chicago and their engagement session. I am sure the rest of their journey is going to be pretty epic too.
