When I met my fiancé, it was love at first sight. And trust me, I know how cliche that sounds, but it’s true. We were both graduates of the University of Michigan. We were both Republicans. We both loved boy bands and were totally willing to admit it. And we both loved Mexican food.
I mean, that last one could have been a real deal breaker, am I right? Who doesn’t adore a killer taco or get super overly excited about a plate of sizzling fajitas? So when it came time to choose the cuisine for our engagement party, there really wasn’t any question:
Mexican food isn’t necessarily the classiest of cuisines, but we still wanted our event to have that air of cocktail party elegance. Our amazing bartender, Glenn, mixed up delicious fresh margaritas and a killer white sangria, which were the downfall of many guests that night.
Here are some more photos from our amazing party, thrown by my incredible parents:
Our engagement party was small and cozy, with just family and and the bridal party. But it was exactly what we had hoped it would be: a beautiful, intimate affair filled with people we love. We cannot wait to celebrate again at our wedding next year!
P.S. Thank you to Calli, who took so many of these amazing beautiful photos at our party! You’re the best! <3
