When Jessica Lagoy and Kevin Cullen met as freshmen at Villanova University, living one floor apart in the dorms, they may have guessed they’d be good friends. But over the next year, as their conversations got longer and their nights got later, they quickly realized they were meant to be more. A year and a half into their friendship, the pair went on a first date at a local sushi joint, and both were a little surprised at how effortless the new stage in their relationship felt.
Eight years later, Kevin took Jessica on a getaway to Middleburg to visit wineries and picnic with friends. Thinking they would enjoy some alone time, they booked a night at the their favorite bed and breakfast, Glen Gordon Manor, where they sipped wine and chatted late into the night. The next morning, Kevin walked Jessica to an old tree swing on the property. With the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains behind him, Kevin got down on one knee and asked Jessica to be his wife.
The pair returned to this special spot with photographer Mantas Kubilinskas in the fall to recapture the perfect moment on the swing, using the mountains and fall foliage as their backdrop.
Jessica and Kevin are set to wed on May 7, 2016, at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle.
