Miss Dozier to wed Sutherland
Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Dozier are thrilled to announce the engagement of their daughter, Francie Dozier, to Bryan Sutherland, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Sutherland.
Francie is the granddaughter of Mrs. Frances Dozier and the late Mr. Wilson Terrell Dozier of Bentonia, and the late Mr. and Mrs. H.L. Smith of Jackson.
Bryan is the grandson of Mrs. Kay Moore and the late Mr. Paul Moore of Brunswick, Md. and Mr. William Sutherland and the late Mrs. Sarah Sutherland of Laurel Bloomery, Tenn.
The pair met at Brunswick High School and both attended the University of Maryland, College Park. After graduation, Francie went on to earn her Master of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., while Bryan stayed in Frederick, Md. to begin his career.
Bryan now works as a site management coordinator for Unison Site Management, and Francie works as a nuclear engineer for the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board.
Despite the fact that they live several states apart, they both knew that they would one day be married.
Bryan proposed to Francie on December 28, 2011 on a beautifully lit pier in Baltimore’s inner harbor.
A country wedding is planned for August in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
