Braden and Lauren’s story began in the most unique of places. Not at a party or in the mall. Nor in the park or in a school hall. No. They met while performing one of the most selfless acts we Americans are free to give. Neither Braden or Lauren, who on a side note has an affinity for feinting after giving blood, realized that the person they stood next to in line that day would end up becoming their future spouse. After all, what were the odds of meeting your soul mate in line at a Red Cross blood drive? But fate had it that they should be wed, and at least this time, fate had its way.
On May 13, 2016, Braden and Lauren committed themselves to each other with a beautiful sunset wedding at the Lowry House in Huntsville, AL. Both were practically shaking with excitement when their moment finally arrived. And after Lauren had her one cup of Coke while getting ready and the final “I Dos” were said, you could almost feel the tension leave the now wedded couple’s minds. A magnificent ceremony with a wonderful reception to celebrate a truly in love bride and groom. Then, as Braden and Lauren pulled away, the smile on Lauren’s face made the whole event worth all the effort put in. After all these years of waiting, Lauren had found her fairy tale man.
From the Valentine’s Day ring on the left, to the Engagement/Wedding on the right, Lauren went into her wedding day full of bedazzle.
The letter Braden read from Lauren just hours before they got married. I still don’t know what in it, but whatever it was made Braden tear up.

Thank you In Bloom for these MAGNIFICENT bouquets!

The all-time struggle with night-time weddings is lighting the area. Thank you Metropolitan Disk Jockey for setting up a wonderful canopy of lights for us.
Thank you once again Lauren and Braden for letting me be a part of this new chapter. Good luck beginning your new life together.
