I met Sarah and Brandon on a surprisingly warm afternoon in Downtown Morganton last month. Boy, are these two cute. I had also never been to Morganton even though it's only an hour or so from Boone. I never knew it was so hopping! I've already told Garrett I wanted to go back to adventure one weekend night. Sarah was so ready to go anywhere I asked which obviously turned out great for photos! Her smile is absolutely contagious. I can't wait to spend more time with these two at the end of this month for Sarah's bridal session then again in June for their BIG DAY! Congrats, you two!
How did the two of you meet?
Sarah: "Brandon and I met on eHarmony! Brandon's profile caught my attention as his subscription was soon expiring and he simply added 'get it while it's hot!' I guess I am a sucker for a guy with a sense of humor."
What was it like early in your relationship?
Sarah: "We lived about 5 hours apart so we talked on the phone constantly, sometimes for 6 hours a day. We got to know each other very well during that time even though we did not see each other as much."
How long have you been together?
Sarah: "We have been together for 1.5 years."
Name one thing you love about each other.
Sarah: "Brandon is really funny and always keeps me laughing. I love his personality and his willingness to go outside of his comfort zone at times to do things with and for me."
Brandon: "It is difficult to choose only one thing I love about Sarah! She is a really caring and sweet person and I love the way she brings out the best in me."
How did Brandon propose?
Sarah: "On a cold day in January, we went to the snow covered Roan Mountain to sight see and take some photos with my new lens Brandon gifted me. Nearing the end of our hike we set up the camera to take some photos of us together and during our photo shoot, Brandon got down on one knee and pulled the most sparkly ring I have ever seen from his pocket! I was so surprised and cold I was speechless! But I of course said yes and we ran back to the car where we sat for some time and stared at my engagement ring and could not stop grinning/kissing/talking about the future!"
Any funny stories involving the two of you?
Sarah: "Brandon often refers to himself as "Cougar-Bait" since he is 8 months younger than me!"
What's next for the two of you?
Sarah: "Our wedding day is coming up in June! We are honeymooning in the Caribbean in July :)) And in the near future Brandon will graduate with his second Bachelor's degree and we plan to move closer to the coast and hope to start our family!!"
