There’s nothing like a carnival to signal the beginning of summer and fun things to come…that’s why we’re totally loving this super cute and whimsical carnival themed engagement party captured perfectly by LMarie Photography. No detail was left out and they even had a mini tattoo parlor (temporary, of course!), a pie eating contest, and plenty of crackerjacks, cotton candy and coca-colas. I can’t stop smiling at this cute as can be party and I bet you won’t be able to either! Click here for even more!

From LMarie PhotographyThis was a sweet and fun engagement party, planned by the bride’s mother’s best friend, that was catered towards the groom. Chris is an LA chef and a fan of carnival themes. There was a sweet shop set up with all of the couple’s favorite treats, including cotton candy and Cracker Jacks (for their love of baseball). There was even a mini tattoo parlor featuring custom-made temporary tattoos that said Beth hearts Chris!  This casual yet unique party took place in a Los Angeles backyard with very sweet details, love and inspiration from the couple and their families. Even using the couple’s favorite restaurant and capped off with clown noses!
