We hadn’t met this couple in person until the million degree day we met them in Raleigh at the Dorothea Dix Park for their engagement session. It was hot as blue blazes, yall. One of the hottest days of the year. But we had already been rained out twice before so we all decided heat is better than rain!
Sydney and Jim are planning their destination wedding in Mexico and wanted to celebrate with a fiesta styled engagement session! It was perfect! They included their dog Rhody, their mutual love of music with a record player and records that represented fun memories they have together, and of course margaritas and a pinata (that Sydney hand-made!)
Gosh we had a blast sweating it out together, laughing, enjoying Jim’s tunes on the guitar, sipping margaritas and of course a LOT of Pinata Confetti (that they made sure was biodegradable and packed with wildflower seeds :) I imagine this is exactly what their time in Mexico will be like.. minus the biodegradable confetti.. but then again, maybe!
We are so happy we know these happy humans and can’t wait to follow their marriage adventures!!
And just so that we can all remember just how daggon hot it was!
