A toast to the bride and groom-to-be!
On Thursday, Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright announced on Instagram that they are engaged. That night, the two celebrated their happy news at a surprise engagement party with their co-stars. The event will be shown on the upcoming seventh season of the Bravo reality show.
"The surprise before!!" Kristen Doute wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of the group. "My best friend is marrying my best friend (again) @brittany @mrjaxtaylor."
Other guests included Lisa Vanderpump, Doute's boyfriend Carter Brian, Stassi Schroeder, Peter Madrigal, Tom Sandoval, Scheana Shay, Katie Maloney-Schwartz and husband Tom Schwartz, plus Lala Kent and Ariana Madix, who both posted on Instagram Stories a video of Cartwright looking surprised as she walked into the room.
The bride-to-be wore a white dress to the party. She had earlier in the night, before revealing the engagement, posted on Instagram a selfie of her and Taylor headed out for a "date night."
Kent asked Cartwright to show her 3.14-carat, halo-style, cushion-cut diamond engagement ring by Kyle Chan Design.
"Oh my God!" she said. "That is huge!"
