Winter Sunsets and People In Love

“Every other lover in the city has a song to sing
But none of them ring in my ear”
― Deer Hunter, She is Always Singing


Lauren & Patrick met 5.5 years ago via OkCupid! Their first date is the definition of an amazing first date. It started off with Dinner at Montana’s followed by bowling. They then went for a walk down to White Mud Park (which will become an epic location in their love story eventually!) and concluded the evening with a Star Wars Marathon! These two individuals enjoy music a lot and happen to have the coolest proposal I have ever heard of!

Being the songwriter and singer, Patrick decided to write Lauren a song. One evening the couple went for a drive down to White Mud Park. In the parking lot, Patrick asked Lauren if she could hear a song he had written. Patrick often requests this of Lauren so this was nothing unusual. He put on the song he had recorded on the car’s music player. As the song starts playing, the screen within the car flashes “Hey Lauren, for serious, will you marry me?”. She did not see it coming! She, of course, said yes. If nothing, the proposal itself deserved a yes!

Their ring has a cool story of its own. They went to the different jewelry stores to find the perfect engagement ring but nothing was right. Finally, Lauren’s dad mentioned that her grandpa still had her great-great grandma’s ring. This was the perfect ring and Lauren was the perfect person to inherit that family heirloom. The ring itself has an un-identified stone which is either an extremely precious stone or old whiskey bottle glass!

It was amazing to work with Lauren & Patrick on their wedding day and we can’t be more excited to share their final images with them in the coming weeks! You can check out the rest of our work on our blog!
