Lauren had just completed the Susan G Komen Race for The Cure and needed a nap!! So she came home to relax and rest. When she woke up her roommate was dolled up, so Lauren asked what her plans were. Apparently her boyfriend and his roommate were coming over to grill and play washers. After her roommate asked her to join them, Lauren quickly got ready and upon finishing she met the boyfriend and his roommate Erick. She thought he was cute but maybe a little shy at first, but as the evening progressed they became very flirtatious. With a big road trip planned for the next day, Lauren had to call it an evening so she said goodbye to Erick and with that he kissed her. They exchanged numbers, and after his text the next day Lauren told her friends along on the trip that she had met someone special. She knew right from the start there was something about this guy that was different from any other.
A couple years went by and after packing bags and staying at one another’s places while dating, they decided to move in together. They loved coming home to one another each day, but on December 18, 2012 – Lauren had no idea what she’d be coming home to. She talked with him the entire drive home that day just like any other day. When she pulled up she said she was headed inside, and upon opening the door there was Erick – down on one knee amidst a sea of candlelight. He proclaimed his unconditional love for her and how happy she made him and then asked her to spend forever with him. Of course, after a scream and many tears, Lauren said YES! Erick then made them a delicious steak dinner and they spent the evening wrapped up in one another, calling all their loved ones with the news they were getting married!!
They set the date for May 10th, 2014 and cannot wait to be surrounded with family and friends as they say their “I Dos”. Enjoy a few images from Lauren & Erick’s engagement session!!!
