The Proposal: After two years of convincing Mark to finally hike Camelback Mountain, Lauren was disappointed when Mark injured his leg and had to head back down the mountain. Little did Lauren know Mark was gathering their families for the biggest surprise of her life. Mark reemerged from the trail, dropped to one knee and asked to spend the rest of their lives together to a very surprised Lauren!
A month before the ceremony, the couple’s pastor was called to move across the country. The couple was at a lost until Lauren’s little brother heard about it and decided to help. Within a week, he was certified as an officiant and booked his ticket to fly in from Alaska!
The couple held their wedding at SoHo63 with DePoy Studios on hand to capture every moment! The whole day was a dream for the couple, but Lauren’s favorite part was when Mark said special vows to her daughter, who he happily has raised as his own since she was one year old. “Let me just tell you, not a single dry eye was to be found,” Lauren stated. She looked stunning in a gown from Grace Style & Bridal.
Mark’s favorite part of the reception was their guests reactions. “Everyone had tears in their eyes and smiles on their faces. It seemed many had been anticipating this day with just as much excitement as we had!”
