He was a high school senior, and she a grade below him at the same high school. They’d seen one another along the way plenty of times, but that particular weekend when they saw one another out, something was different. Brad called Lauren after seeing her Friday night and asked her if she wanted to hang out. While watching a movie at his parent’s house, Brad asked her to be his girlfriend forever changing the rest of their lives.
9 years later, Brad said one evening “We are going out on a date tomorrow night.” It hadn’t been the best week for Lauren, and she was hesitant to get up the energy to go on a date. Regardless when the next day came they headed out on their date. They had a relaxing meal by the lake at The Boat House in Forest Park, and they decided to go on a leisurely walk through the park since it was so nice out. About 5 minutes into their walk, Brad stopped and as lauren turned around he was there on one knee. There and then he asked her to spend the rest of her life with him, and she began to cry. Caught up in the moment she was filled with emotion until Brad finally whispered “are you going to say something because people are starting to stare!” Immediately she said yes and they couldn’t wait to get back to the car to call friends and family and share the good news!
The couple are planning a November wedding to continue their love story and begin their forever!
Enjoy a peek at their engagement session!!
