I received an email from Dhari on a Monday afternoon. It said, I know it’s a longshot, but are you available to photograph my proposal to my girlfriend this Friday at Arrington Vineyards? I told him, it may be a longshot, but I have good aim. If you plan on being there later in the day, I can help you. Dhari and his soon to be future wife, Brittany were scheduled for a 6 PM wine tasting and tour, so after that he had planned to do the deed. And the deed, indeed, he did do. Say that fast 5 times in a row. This longshot proposal at Arrington Vineyards was now a reality, and in my sights.
I’m sure the moment was overwhelming for Dhari, but he kept it together as we navigated through some logistics barriers by text message. When reality hit Brittany, she was beautifully emotional. It turns out this was already a huge day for the couple, which I will cover in a moment.
Dhari and Brittany met through work. Earlier this day, they closed on a house they are purchasing. It’s also their two year dating anniversary. It doesn’t stop there. It’s also Brittany’s birthday! Then the sprinkles on top of the sundae, Dhari proposed, and what a rock star! She had no idea that was coming, but I could see it was sensory overload for her, in a good and happy way of course.
Now that day will have multiple happy meanings for the both of them, and I wish Dhari and Brittany the deepest congratulations. I enjoyed documenting the milestone on an already monumental day. I hope you’ve enjoyed this longshot proposal at Arrington Vineyards.
