A Regent University Snow Engagement: Brittany + Rand

I don’t know if it’s snowing where you are right now, but here in Central Virginia, the ground is covered in the white stuff!  It seems appropriate that this snowy engagement session is hitting the blog tonight.  This couple braved the cold and rocked their session at Regent University!  But before we get to their images, let me tell ya little bit about Brittany and Rand.

Rand and Brittany met in 2010 at a regional work training for Schubach Jewelers in Utah. Brittany worked in Layton, UT and Rand worked in Sandy, UT – a whole hour apart, but they found out they only lived five minutes away from each other. Within a few months, they were inseparable. Their favorite dates were spent eating wings at Wingers, sushi at Happy Sumo, and going boating (They like to eat!). Brittany quickly learned that the way to Rand’s heart was through his stomach – they both love to cook.

In 2012, Rand took a promotion that moved him to Indiana. In 2013, Brittany was accepted to law school in Virginia. In the mix of all of the hardships that come with a long-distance relationship, Rand popped the question on July 4, 2013 in downtown Indianapolis. Rand had flown Brittany from Utah to Indianapolis on a last minute trip, and she thought the plan was for dinner and fireworks. When the waitress asked if they wanted dessert, Brittany said no she was too full. Rand insisted on dessert, and with dessert came the sweetest proposal and the most beautiful ring. Brittany said yes with a big smile and tears in her eyes.

The waiting and the long-distance are finally over! Brittany and Rand now reside in Virginia Beach and are planning a June 2014 wedding at Winterham Plantation in Amelia, VA.

Brittany attends law school at Regent University, so we thought it was a fantastic place for their engagement session! We also lucked out to have some pretty, white snow on the ground. Check out these two cuties…

Love the red door!  Good idea, Brittany!
