The couple’s alma mater, Virginia Tech, has a large student body—but not so big as to keep mutual friends from introducing Kristen Igelman to Rich Brittingham during their senior year. Four and a half years later, Rich surprised Kristen with a romantic proposal in the Caribbean and the wedding planning began. Neither felt strongly about getting married in their hometowns, so they explored areas along the Chesapeake Bay and fell in love with Wade’s Point Inn in St. Michael’s, Maryland.
