“We fell in love with Vermont,” she said, and at first they saw each other every two or three weeks, but when she got a car, they took turns driving each weekend.
In 2016, after each graduated, she cum laude, they got an apartment together on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Mr. Lakhanpal, now 26, worked for an investment banking firm for three years. Ms. Snow, now 27, taught first grade at Success Academy charter schools for a couple of years before starting medical school at the University of Maryland, where she is now in her third year. In that round of long-distance, he visited her every weekend.
In July 2018, before she began medical school, he proposed on a beach in Turks and Caicos.
The next year they got a condo in Washington, when he began working as the director of strategic planning and corporate development at the Center for Vascular Medicine in Greenbelt, Md. (In August, he is to begin working as an associate at Advent International, an investment firm in Boston. They agree that this is definitely their last round of long distance).
They planned to get married in July 2020 at Hildene, an events space in Manchester, Vt., with 200 guests, but postponed it when the coronavirus pandemic set in.
On June 25, Sharon K. Burke, a senior manager at the circuit court of Anne Arundel County, officiated at the county courthouse in Annapolis. They celebrated in the backyard of the groom’s parents, with 60 guests, and their golden retriever Bailey, in an open-sided sailcloth tent, with champagne toasts and dinner.
