This weekend, the two celebrated their upcoming nuptials at a gorgeous engagement party at Beauty & Essex in Los Angeles on Saturday, surrounded by 50 of their closest friends and family. The actress shared a series of photos from the evening on Instagram, where she's seen wearing a California-cool white dress, accessorized with his and hers leis.
Parrish captioned the snapshots, "Got to celebrate my engagement to my person tonight in front of our families and friends. It was perfect." And according to the pictures, it truly was.
“Their fathers gave speeches saying how blessed they were to see their children so happy and how excited they were to see them both start a beautiful new chapter together,” a guest of the soirée told PEOPLE in an interview. The guest also revealed that the lucky attendees munched on appetizers like oven-braised chicken meatballs, tuna poke wonton tacos, empanadas and were served Perrier Jouet Grand Brut champagne all night long.
“Janel and Chris were both glowing all night and looked happier than ever,” the guest added of the bride and groom. “They left hand-in-hand talking about their wedding and how thrilled they were to continue the planning process.”
The bride and groom announced their engagement on Instagram, revealing that the two were on a hike when Long popped the question.
“Went to the park for a stroll with [our dog] Klee and came back with a fiancé. I get to marry my best friend and I’m over the moon,” she captioned a photo of the two of them kissing, showing off her massive engagement ring.
