John Cena and Nikki Bella are gearing up for the planning season ahead, and to kick it off, the couple celebrated their engagement party over the weekend with close friends and family members.

Cena, 40, took to Twitter to share a thoughtful note about the party and his relationship. “Such a wonderful, meaningful, emotional day yesterday with the woman of my dreams and both of our families,” the WWE superstar wrote. “I love you Nicole, you’ve made me realize the importance of togetherness.”

Bella replied to her future husband by writing: “Aww my Love… It was so magical. Love you too John.”

The bride’s best friends posted the same group shot from the engagement bash.“Snapshot from this last weekend celebrating our favorite girl & her future hubs!” pal Sarah Pendrick wrote. For the occasion, Bella chose a figure-flattering, champagne spaghetti strap piece.

Bella’s twin, Brie Bella, also posted a moment from the party as well—with her sister and their cousin. Both Brie and the family member will serve as co-maids of honor.

Bella and Cena got engaged at WrestleMania in April 2017, and the bride has touched base with The Knot throughout the engagement. While they have yet to reveal their wedding date, Bella confirmed last fall that she will be wearing Marchesa.

“It is gorgeous,” she teased of the piece. “There was this one dress that I was drawn to. My sister was like, ‘Everyone’s excited about this one dress, but don’t be disappointed when you try it on [if it isn’t the one]. And it was amazing. My 85-year-old nana was like, ‘This is for you.’”
