Now that's how you celebrate an engagement.

Hours after announcing their plans to tie the knot on Wednesday, former NHL star Sean Avery and model Hilary Rhoda made a photogenic pair at the after party for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at TAO Downtown. 

Rhoda, 26, who was one of the top models walking the runway earlier in the night, looked stunning in a floral silk dress with leather accents. She was also wearing her latest accessory – a sparkling diamond ring! 

Avery, 33, who played for the Detroit Red Wings, the Los Angeles Kings, the Dallas Stars and the New York Rangers during his 12-year NHL career (and is also a former intern at Vogue) complimented his bride-to-be perfectly, wearing a dark navy shirt that matched the flowers on her dress.



At 11 p.m., the couple chatted with a friend near the venue's exit. Rhoda talked animatedly with their male friend while Avery listened quietly, at one point reaching out sweetly to adjust her jacket collar. 

"We are excited to plan the most beautiful and fun wedding that we could ever imagine," they told PEOPLE. A source says the pair is planning for a destination wedding sometime next year. They are "thinking of Jamaica," a source said.
