AGGIE WOODS AND HUMBERTO RODRIGUEZ’S love for spicy Cheetos and California roots brought them together when they met in 2010 while serving for AmeriCorps in Manchester, New Hampshire. A year later, Maggie was accepted into a graduate program at Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy, and the couple decided to move to Durham together. Shortly after, Humberto began studies at UNC-Chapel Hill for his master’s in public health. On a typical Monday afternoon, after six years of dating, Humberto got down on both knees in their living room and announced nervously, “This is me proposing!” Maggie also got down on both knees and replied, “Yes!” The newly engaged couple then enjoyed a celebratory meal at Thai Cafe. Carolyn Scott Photography took the pair’s engagement photos at one of their favorite spots, the international grocery store Food World Durham.

“We eat there frequently, and we wanted our engagement pictures to reflect our lives,” Maggie says. They particularly enjoy the authentic Mexican food in the store’s taqueria and panaderia. Maggie and Humberto’s wedding will be held September 3, 2017, at Harmony Wynelands Vineyard in California.
