High Point University Engagement

High Point University Engagement

High Point University Engagement.

Brittany and Joel's love story started at High Point University!

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, ho 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.
