Those present also included the couple’s family, most notably children, Jennifer’s daughter Emme and her twin Maximilian, both 11, and A Rod’s girls Ella, 11, and Natasha, 14.
An insider told E! News: ‘It was a dimly lit party with candles everywhere, white flowers and purple lighting. It was held both indoors and outdoors.’
The source added: ‘It was a chance for all of their friends in LA to celebrate their engagement.’

Rodriquez, who popped the question to his bride-to-be over a romantic getaway to the Bahamas in March after over two years of dating, posted a photo of the beaming couple to his Instagram on Saturday, captioning it with: ‘So great celebrating with family and close friends last night.’
In his Stories, he also posted some snaps with the pair’s daughters — Emme is Jlo’s daughter from her previous marriage to Marc Anthony, and Ella is Arod’s younger daughter with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
One snap showed all four of them together, with Alex, 44, captioning the photo ‘Fun night with family.’
At least two other famous guests were in attendance, as evidenced on social media, with Ryan Seacrest posing with Rodriguez’s older daughter Natasha.

The very family-oriented couple has mostly remained rather tight-lipped about details of their upcoming nuptials, but the Hustlers star did say in a video on her YouTube channel over the summer that it will be happening next year.
‘It’s been three years now,’ Lopez said, referring to how long she’s been involved with Rodriguez. ‘[We’ll get hitched] soon, not soon-soon but next year.’
‘I’d like a big wedding,’ the Monster In Law star added. ‘I’d like to get married in a church this time. Never been married in a church.’
In addition to all her recent activities, Lopez can add yet ANOTHER reason to celebrate to her list: her engagement party comes just two days after it was confirmed that she will be co-headlining next year’s showy Super Bowl halftime show with Colombian performer Shakira.
Alex has revealed how ‘proud’ he is of his wife-to-be.
Following the announcement, the retired baseball star posted on his Instagram and Twitter pages: ‘So proud and SO EXCITED! Bringing it home! Going to set the #305 on [fire emoji] (sic)’
