When Andrew swooped in to save Lauren from an unwanted conversation at a bar, he didn’t know he’d just met his future wife, but on April 11, 2021, they tied the knot.
Lauren looked incredible in a tiered ruffled ballgown with spaghetti straps and a deep V neckline. She accessorized with a hip-length veil. Her bouquet was composed of an assortment of white blooms accented with greenery. Her six bridesmaids wore coordinating full-length pale blue dresses. They carried modified versions of the bride’s bouquet.
Andrew chose a blue suit with a plaid vest, white shirt, burgundy tie, white flower boutonniere, and burgundy pocket square. His five groomsmen wore blue suits with gray vests, white shirts, burgundy ties, white flower boutonnieres, and burgundy pocket squares.
The officiant of the outdoor ceremony spoke about how lucky she’s been to watch the couple’s love story unfold. Andrew and Lauren read their vows to each other. A harpist performed during the ceremony.
Next, guests sat down to a meal of classic Caesar salad; slow-roasted, herb-crusted prime rib; caprese chicken with balsamic glaze; potatoes au gratin; and angel-hair pasta with garlic and fresh pesto.
In the speeches, the maid of honor talked about how long she and Lauren have known each other and how they’re like sisters. The best man shared memories about how he met Andrew and good times they’ve had together. The father of the groom spoke about his son and told funny stories. The father of the bride shared memories of Lauren’s childhood and of the first time he met Andrew.
Andrew and Lauren’s first dance as man and wife was to “Better Together” by Luke Combs. Lauren and her father danced to “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. Andrew and his mother danced to “Boy” by Lee Brice. Other wedding fun included a bouquet and garter toss, and cards where guests could give marriage advice and date ideas.
The three-tier white wedding cake was done with a rosette design on the bottom tier and a brushed frosting design on the other two layers. It was decorated with pink and white flowers and topped with an ornament bearing the couple’s last name.
Lauren and Andrew left their big day under the signature sparkler send-off.
We wish them all the best in their beautiful new life together!
