A Momentous Crush Goes the Distance

In the beginning, they saw each other every two or three weeks, but when she got a car, they started driving each other there every weekend. “We fell in love with Vermont,” she said.

They moved in together in the Upper West Side of Manhattan in 2016 after each of them graduated, she cum laude. Mr. Lakhanpal, a 26-year-old investment banker, worked there for three years. Before beginning medical school at the University of Maryland, Ms. Snow, now 27, taught first grade at Success Academy charter schools for a short time. He visited her every weekend during that period of long-distance dating.

He proposed to her on a beach in Turks and Caicos in July 2018 before she started medical school.

While working as the director of strategic planning and corporate development at Center for Vascular Medicine in Greenbelt, Md. the following year, they purchased a condo in Washington, DC. Advent International, a Boston-based investment firm, plans to hire him as an associate in August. This will be their final long-distance journey.

They had originally planned to marry in July 2020 at Hildene, an events venue in Manchester, Vermont, for 200 guests, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone their plans.

Annapolis’ county courthouse hosted a wedding on June 25th, officiated by Sharon K. Burke, senior manager of the circuit court for Anne Arundel County, Maryland. A sailcloth tent was set up in the backyard of the groom’s parents with 60 guests and their golden retriever, Bailey, for champagne toasts and dinner.
