Traditions Brewing engagement session. The brewery was such an amazing spot because there were tons of photographic opportunities. We started outside where the trees were a riot of color, then headed indoors to sample one of Traditions many local brews. One of the things I loved best about this brewery was the fact that they are pet friendly, so Duck (Erin and Brett’s sweet puppy) was welcome wherever we went!

Get to know these two a bit better, and learn about their love story in the blog!

Traditions Brewing Engagement Session for Erin and Brett

How Did You Two Meet?

We met at UVA Law School in 2010.  We both just finished our first year and met through a mutual friend.  We were both intrigued by each other and became really good friends really quickly.  We grew into something more a few months later.

When Did you Know He Was “The One”?

I don’t believe that there is “one” person out there destined to be with each person.  I think you fall in love someone and choose to make that person your partner in life, and you have to keep making that choice every day.  I don’t know if there is a single moment when Brett and I chose each other.  But every time he comforts me, makes me laugh, encourages me, and supports me (which is all the time), I am reminded that I made the right choice.

What Was The Proposal Like?

Brett proposed to me on a random Tuesday evening in July.  I did not see it coming, and I was completely surprised.  We were taking a family walk with our dog, Duck, on the Noland Trail, and he told me to pose with Duck for a picture.  Next thing I knew, he was on one knee with a ring.  I laughed and cried.  He caught it all on camera.  It was perfect.

What Are Some of Your Favorite Things to do Together?

Brett and I are huge college football fans.  In the fall, we love posting up at a sports bar for hours watching a game and drinking beers.  We also love throwing parties and hosting our friends (and pup-friends!) on the weekend.  We also cook together and binge Netflix together (of course).

What Is One Word You’d Use to Describe Your Relationship?

One word to describe our relationship?  I’ll cheat and use two: best friends.

What are Three Dreams/Goals for Your Marriage?

We have lots of dreams and goals for our life together.  He wants to build enough furniture over the next few years to furnish our whole house.  I want to write a book.  Together, I think the ultimate dream would be to end up as clinical professors at the same law school, maybe UVA where it all started, who knows . . .
