The stars came out to play on Saturday for some champagne and good times at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Sophia Bush enjoyed the outing with her fiancé Grant Hughes after the couple got engaged during a romantic getaway to Lake Como, Italy, in August. She tells PEOPLE they're "intentionally cherishing" their engagement.

"It's funny. I think when you're an adult and you understand what mental health is and you know all of the things we have learned, as individuals, you always hear that marriage is work and it's the best job you'll ever have, but it requires effort," Bush, 39, explains.

"And we got engaged and I looked around and said, 'Why didn't anyone tell me how sweet and pure this would be?' It's just so sweet and it's a time that I'm very intentionally cherishing," she adds. "And you know, more adventures on the horizon."

Jordana Brewster also had her husband-to-be nearby, arriving with fiancé Mason Morfit. The 41-year-old announced her engagement to the tech CEO, 44, last month after she and husband Andrew Form "quietly separated" last year.

"It feels really exciting. I'm starting to plan and I'm going to take it really slowly and I'm going to really savor each step," she muses to PEOPLE. "I'm actually going to have an engagement party and I have a Pinterest for the dress and I'm doing all the girly girly stuff I never did. So I'm really excited."

When asked how she knew Morfit was the one, Brewster says, "That was just a given. Yeah, there was no second guessing."

Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas put their new union on display in a rare public appearance after PEOPLE confirmed in May that they secretly tied the knot. The former The Young and the Restless costars began dating in spring 2020. "I love it. We're having a blast. We just have a great time," Hartley, 44, says.

"I love it! I freaking love it. It doesn't feel different. It just feels great," Pernas, 32, adds. "I mean, I love calling him my husband. It doesn't change anything; it's just a sexier way of being together."

Charlize Theron enjoyed a rare day of grown-up time, arriving without her daughters Jackson, 9, and August, 6. "Well that rarely happens these days," she says. "I got two girls who are highly demanding so when I have a moment, I'm usually spending it with them."

The F9 actress, 46, caught up with fellow moms Gabrielle Union and Jodie Turner-Smith, who also arrived sans kids for the star-studded 21+ event. Also in attendance were Jacob Elordi, Keke Palmer, Jamie Chung, Chris Martin, Lukas Gage, Christina Hendricks, Retta, Jaime King, Logan Browning, and Lana Condor, to name a few.
