From the get go I loved Lauren and Tim. Her inquiry was so perky and matter a fact… and the ensuing phone consult was even better! And when we finally met they booked on the spot!
The beginning of their romance was a whirlwind… no sooner had they met then he called, no sooner had he called then they had dinner, no sooner they had dinner than they were off to Charleston… What!?
Three years later on July 4th weekend, Tim took Lauren back to Charleston. He had made some special arrangements at the very same restaurant where they had been 3 years ago. They watched the fireworks off the battery, and then he took her back to the spot where they had spent the night talking for hours over a bottle of red wine. He didn’t get down on one knee, but he proposed atop the John C. Calhoun monument… just as original as these two are. Lauren told me that she pretty much knew Tim was it for her right from the start, and after seeing the way these two love and care for each other it’s obvious their love and passion will last a lifetime.
I felt so honored to be a part of this small, intimate wedding as well as the reception the following weekend. This wedding was definitely a perfect mix of who Tim & Lauren are and what they value… Love.
