Lauren & Calvin won a free engagement session with me at the July 2018 KC Weddings Bridal Spectacular. I was so glad that they won my drawing prize, and that I got to work with them during this exciting time in their lives! Above is a link with information for the January 2019 KC Weddings Bridal Spectacular show. I will be in attendance giving away even more cool things. I hope to see you there!
Meet Lauren & Calvin! This dynamic duo met one cold wintry night (not unlike tonight) at Brother’s Bar in Lawrence, Kansas. 50¢ wings and doubles will bring anyone out on a cold night, right? So Calvin had the wings and doubles on his side, but this is where his confidence and charisma comes into play. Lauren was actually at Brother’s on a date with someone else! But at closing time he slipped her a note (elementary school-style) asking her out, and the rest is history :)
Calvin’s confidence and perfect timing came into play at another key moment in their relationship: their proposal! When he proposed to Lauren, Calvin knew he wanted to make it special so he invited her on his work trip to New York City. During their free day, Calvin decided he was going to propose to Lauren in Central Park, on the Brooklyn Bridge, or on top of Rockefeller Center, whichever came first. As it turned out, they reached the Brooklyn Bridge first, and that’s where he popped the question!
Guys, I swear I didn’t just pull all the photos of Lauren laughing for this blog. This is how she is! All the time! Why does Lauren laugh so much? Because of Calvin! He is constantly bringing the most genuine smiles out of Lauren by tickling her, emulating her goofiest laughs, or whispering who-knows-what in her ear. Throughout our entire engagement session exploring the Crossroads Arts District and Loose Park, Calvin kept Lauren laughing and smiling, and the results are absolutely joyful to look at. See for yourself!
Congratulations to Lauren & Calvin! Your wedding is going to be so beautiful and fun!
