The future bride and groom, Heather Rae Young and Tarek EI Moussa, invited friends and family for their "magical" pool party bash, with their nuptials around the corner.
Actress Heather Rae Young and HGTV star Tarek EI Moussa had a blast during the weekend with their closest friends for their non-traditional co-ed 80s themed shared party in Palm Springs.
Young took to Instagram to share how the event went in a lengthy post, and according to her message, it turned out to be a great success.
THE WEEKEND PARTY
“The most magical Bach & Bach weekend. We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, and honestly, there wasn't a moment that went by where I didn't feel so lucky to be at such a beautiful hotel celebrating mine and Tarek's love with all our closest friends,” she wrote adding:
"Having a joint bachelor and bachelorette weekend made it the most fun and special time, and a big thank you to eI@moussa_angel and @troy.joshua for the time to plan everything out.”
Young added it was a memorable weekend, and to have their friends fly and drive out to celebrate their love meant a lot to her and EI Moussa, teasing the next stop was their big day.
Along with the post, Young shared snapshots from the special occasion, with the first image showing her and her fiancé locking lips. One photo showed the pair posing for a group photo with Young’s girlfriends.
The event took place at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert, California, with both the couple's sisters in attendance.
Also in the guest list were Young's "Selling Sunset" co-stars Romain Bonnet, Mary Fitzgerald and Brett Oppenheim with his significant other, Tina Louise.
ENGAGEMENT & WEDDING PLANS
EI Moussa, 40, and Young, 33, met in July 2019 and got engaged a year later when he asked her to marry him during a romantic boat trip to Catalina Island, California.
As for their wedding plans, Young decided to keep the wedding date private while adding it feels like they've been engaged for a while.
Young revealed it was difficult for them to choose a date because of the ongoing pandemic, and they were unsure whether they wanted a destination wedding or if they could even travel.
However, she explained that because their parents are older, they did not want to strain them. Therefore, they wanted to avoid having them jumping on any planes.
Initially, the lovebirds had their wedding planned for Cabo but later opted for something local. The overall decision was based on their family and their guests, who were concerned about traveling out of the country, and so for safety reasons, she and her future husband decided to wed closer to home.
