Vanderpump Rules Stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are getting married, and the couple was shocked when their cast members threw a surprise engagement party in their honor. Bravo cameras were on hand to film the event for season seven just hours after the couple announced their engagement on Instagram.
According to The Daily Mail, the reality stars cuddled up for pics with their friends, and Cartwright showed off her 3.14-carat diamond ring. In one photo, fans could see Cartwright in a white dress, and she was in complete shock when she walked into a room full of friends.
Co-star Scheana Shay and the bride-to-be smiled for the camera in a pic that Shay posted with the caption “she said yes.” In another photo, Lisa Vanderpump was in the background sipping champagne and enjoying the party.
Lala Kent joined in on the fun by posting a black-and-white photo of Taylor and Cartwright with hearts drawn around them.
Cartwright announced the engagement news Thursday night on Instagram.

I can’t wait for all of you to see how he proposed! I am the happiest girl ever right now. 💝👑 love can win 💝💝 #PumpRules thank you @kylechandesign this ring is gorgeous!!!
Vanderpump Rules jeweler Kyle Chan designed the ring, and Taylor said he “knocked it out of the park” after the 38-year-old gave him a few details and then trusted him to come through. He said Chan was the only person he wanted designing Cartwright’s ring, and that is because his work is flawless.
The couple celebrated their engagement at Neptune’s Net in Malibu. Taylor posted pics of the party and wrote in the caption that he is marrying the woman of his dreams and couldn’t be happier.

Taylor and Cartwright started dating back in 2015, but during this past season of Vanderpump Rules they split up temporarily after Taylor cheated with former VPR cast member Faith Stowers. But, Cartwright found a way to trust Taylor again, and they said they found a way to weather the storm.
Now, they are in a great place and better than they have ever been.
Jax Taylor says that everything changed for him after his father, Ronald Cauchi, passed away. And, he confessed that losing his father made him realize he wanted to spend his life with Brittany Cartwright.
Season seven of Vanderpump Rules will premiere on Bravo later this year.
