Fresh off the heels of their Carolina’s Magazine feature, Joel + Brittany are anxiously waiting for their wedding day. Joel + Brittany not only share in their love for one another, but also for their Alma Mater, High Point University. Brittany explained, that if it had not been for HPU, these two lovebirds paths may not have ever crossed. So please help us as we celebrate and offer our early congratulations to this beautiful couple!
High Point University Engagement Session
Share with us how you two met:
Joel and I met at High Point University in High Point, NC. He was actually having a back-to-school/birthday party and introduced himself. I didn’t pay him much attention, but then he kept popping up wherever I was. We started hanging out and the rest is history.
Tell us about your proposal:
My (bride) family took a cruise to Mexico, Jamaica and Grand Cayman to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. During the formal dinner night on the ship, we were having a lovely dinner and then he said to my dad, “Mr. Harris, did I ever tell you how Brittany and I met?” Of course my dad said, “No, how did you guys meet.” I snapped my neck at him and was like “Holy crap, don’t tell him we met at a party!” Then I remember my brother standing up with his phone, I’m barely listening to Joel at this point because I’m posing for the camera (duck lips and what not) and then I realize my brother is taking a video. It was in that moment as I listened to bits and pieces of Joel going through our relationship that I put my hand over my heart and thought “Holy crap, I can’t breathe and this is HAPPENING.” Then I look to my right and Joel is getting out of his chair and on one knee. I freaking lost it and couldn’t help but cry and nod my head in agreement to being his wife. Then of course after the hug and kiss, I take a good look at the ring and say “It’s so beautiful!”
How / why did you choose your engagement session location?
Our love story started at High Point University. Without HPU, we may not be together. I think it’s also significant that I didn’t want to go to High Point at all, but it was meant to be. Just like he and I.
Did you enjoy your engagement session?
I loved every minute of it. Dajuan is awesome and spent over 5 hours with us!
