The day after Thanksgiving I spent with this lovely couple and their families and friends at the always beautiful Sheraton in Downtown Raleigh, NC as they celebrated their engagement with an intimate party and dinner. This couple were surrounded by their closest friends and family that were in town for the holiday and as I really didn’t know much about them in advance, I do know that this engagement and this party had been a long time coming.
These two had known each other for years and only recently did they finally make the jump to spend forever together by getting married at what they are planning for a 2018 wedding in Ohio. After some great food and some very emotional toasts and words of encouragement from both the groom and some family members, the couple did an adorable cake cutting and then we cut outside for some night portraits on the Downtown Raleigh streets near the hotel.
I so love how the portraits turned out and I actually one an honorable mention in a local photographers group that I entered one of the portraits of the two of them in front of a light panel outside the hotel.
Hope you enjoy and best wishes to the happy couple!
