Before heading back to work as a judge on the upcoming 21st season of Dancing with the Stars, Julianne Hough took some time to celebrate her recent engagement to Canadian NHL star Brooks Laich. The couple toasted their future marriage surrounded by celebrity friends like Lily Collins, Derek Hough, Aaron Paul and Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears.
“Thank you to all you awesome folks who made last night a very special memory for @juleshough and I!” wrote the Washington Capitals centre on Instagram. “You are all a little south of sanity and we love you for it!” Julianne’s beau also shared some fun black-and-white pictures from the party, showing the guests goofing off in the photo booth.
Aaron’s wife, Lauren, posted her own memorable snaps from the party and congratulated the “beautiful magical babes!” on their momentous occasion.
The engagement party comes hot on the heels of the bride-to-be and her dashing hockey player beau's first official appearance after announcing their exciting news. The couple headed out to Television Academy Cocktail Reception for Outstanding Choreography in Los Angeles, where Julianne looked gorgeous in a blue-and-white cocktail dress.
Julianne recently revealed to E! News that right now she is just concentrating on being a fiancée, “We’re just enjoying our engagement. We really enjoy our stages. I think we enjoyed the dating stage and being engaged, so I think we like to enjoy each stage.” The Footloose actress also confirmed that it was love at first sight for the adorable duo, saying, “When I met him it was kind of like, Yeah, I knew and I think he knew too. We kind of knew it was going to happen.”
