Cara Santana and Jesse Metcalfe are one step closer to tying the knot! After years of dating, the couple got engaged back in August and followed up that momentous occasion with their engagement party this weekend.

The Hills Penthouse West Hollywood was the luxurious choice for their celebration, where the duo posed for a slew of hugs and kisses. The bride- and groom-to-be posted all of the night's sweet PDA on their Instagram pages the morning after, with Santana in a gold sequin-embellished dress with a low back and Metcalfe in a fall-perfect gray suit. "Such a fun night // Thank you to all our family and friends for celebration with us" read the caption of the actress's time-lapse video of the night.

Metcalfe posted the same video with the inscription, "Such an awesome evening celebrating our engagement!" He continued, "Thank you so much to all of our family and friends sharing this moment with us. Love you all!!!" How sweet!

Before the festivities, the Dallas actor teased the upcoming party with a throwback photo of himself kissing Santana on a sailboat in New York City, with the Statue of Liberty in the background. His caption read, "Woot woot! We are SO excited to celebrate our engagement with our family and friends this evening."

That weekend marked their first as a newly engaged couple, as Metcalfe popped the question on the boat! Santana then took to Instagram to post some snaps of her gorgeous 5.5-carat diamond ring.
