Although Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have been engaged since February, they finally celebrated their upcoming nuptials with a formal engagement party on Friday.

Hosted by lyricist Carole Bayer Sager, the party dripped of elegance and romance. Guests were seated at glass tables adorned with candles and flower petals and were served a four-course meal of salad, pumpkin-squash tortellini, choice of salmon or chicken, and dessert.

Lopez shared a series of intimate photos from the night on Instagram including a snap of her kissing her fiancé with her massive emerald-cut diamond ring on full display. "Thank you Carol and Bob for the most beautifully elegant night...we love you," she captioned the post.

In true bride-to-be fashion, the singer wore a one shoulder white gown with a ruffled bodice while her fiancé wore a white shirt and black suit. We even caught of a glimpse of her simple and modern bridal manicure—can we some ring selfies soon, J-Lo?

The couple's children, who they each had from previous marriages, were also present at the party, with the Hustlers actress sharing snaps of the young ones to her Instagram story.

Lopez also told Entertainment Tonight that her 11-year-old son Maximillian will be walking her down the aisle.
