They say Virginia is for lovers, and next month that’s exactly where sensational couple, Briana and Darin, will say I do. Today, I’m happy to share their love story interview and sneak peeks at their stunning engagement session photographed by Charlie P Windsor Photography. These two love birds are set to tie the knot at the gorgeous Potomac Point Vineyard and Winery. It’s guaranteed to be one love-filled and beautiful day, and by the looks of their engagement photos, it’s going to be picture perfect, too!
How did you meet?
We met on tinder officially. Once we started talking though before taking the next step to meet in person and have our first date, we added each other on Instagram (mainly because I wanted to make sure I was going to be Cat fished! LOL) and I noticed a picture OF ME and him and two of my best friends from 2 years prior at a Halloween Bar Crawl in DC. The funny thing was, Darin was in a Ted bear costume, so covered from head to toe I never saw what he looked like and we never exchanged information we just saw "Ted" the bear, thought it was hilarious and danced/ took pictures with him and I remember feeling a connection from that moment. I got pulled away though by my friends and never thought about it again but fate made sure to bring us back together once the timing was right!
Most memorable date?
I would say our first date was the most memorable. We have had many amazing dates after, but every little detail made it really memorable and meaningful. I had never been on a blind date, so going in very nervous to feeling completely comfortable as soon as we laid our eyes on each other, was awesome. Also, what was only supposed to start out as lunch turned into an entire day of festivities!
Describe the proposal.
Darin told me he wanted to take me on a date because we both had been working really hard and hadn't spent much time together so we were going to brunch in Georgetown. We walked into Fisher's, Farmer's, Baker's at the waterfront which was packed and I could tell they had an exclusive reservation for us outside. As soon as we got outside, I was walking in front so I noticed the rose petals everywhere, a bottle of champagne and a bouquet of roses, then it hit me... He's proposing!!! I turned around and he was already on one knee with the ring. It was beautiful. Afterwards, he surprised me again nearby with our entire family and closest friends to celebrate with a small, intimate engagement party!
What about marriage are you looking forward to most?
We are looking forward to new experiences marriage will bring us and starting our own new traditions as husband and wife.
What do you love most about your relationship?
The friendship that we have built that allows us to have fun and really be connected. Even when things are stressful in life, we are right there for each other to help get through it.
What song would you dedicate to him/her?
Darin says- No Better Love by Young Gunz. Briana says- Make Me Better by Fabolous and Ne-yo
For fun...who is your favorite TV/Movie couple?
