About two months after Teresa Giudice said yes to Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ proposal, the couple celebrated their engagement by throwing a party attended by their loved ones.

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star and her businessman beau hosted an engagement party Monday at a New York City-based venue adorned with rose-themed decor, white twinkle lights and candles, according to Bravo TV

Based on the photos shared by the bride-to-be on Instagram, she and her fiancé were joined by her daughters Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 12, as they celebrated their relationship milestone. One of Ruelas’ sons from a previous relationship, Louie Jr., was also present. 

Giudice, 49, looked stunning in her black cut-out dress that featured a high slit on the right. In a series of snaps she shared, the reality star was all smiles while posing with her 46-year-old partner, who looked dapper in his black suit and tie. 

Joe Giudice’s ex-wife grabbed the chance to pose for photos alongside her daughters who also dressed up for the occasion. Gia and Milania matched their mom in their black minidresses, while Gabriella opted for a white dress. Meanwhile, the youngest of the four, Audriana, sported a figure-hugging red dress. 

“All 4 of you make me so proud each and every day. It’s an absolute honor to be your mother while watching you grow into the women you are becoming,” Giudice wrote in the caption. 

Ruelas also shared on his Instagram some snaps and clips from the party at Bice Cucina SoHo and wrote a sweet message for his wife-to-be. 

“I’m so lucky to have found such an amazing person that I get to spend the rest of my life with. You are my soulmate, my friend and above all, my partner in life. I’m thrilled to spend the rest of my life with you [red heart emoji]. I give you my heart and vow to be the best partner in LIFE and in LOVE. I love you to the moon and back,” the businessman wrote. 

“I [love] you [for] the rest of my life,” Giudice quickly responded in the comments section.

Guests who showed up to the lavish engagement party included Giudice’s brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga, as well as Dina Manzo and her husband Dave Cantin.

Giudice and Ruelas officially got engaged on Oct. 21, months after they celebrated their one-year anniversary as a couple in July.
