Please join us on Saturday, August 1, 2015 as we celebrate our wedding in Northern Michigan.

A little about us...

Lauren and Brian met while attending Western Michigan University in 2002.  They crossed paths at a party one night where she was acting as a wingwoman for her best friend Kelley.  Brian broke the ice, but quickly learned that Lauren was fighting a bad case of laryngitis and could barely speak a word!  

They hit it off immediately (despite the communication barrier!) and got to know each other through a combination of confusing hand gestures and failed attempts at lip reading.  Breaking all conventional dating rules, Brian called Lauren the next day and heard her voice for the first time.  Thus began their love story!

After college, Lauren followed her dream of moving to New York City and Brian eventually made the move to join her.  Over the years, they supported one another through thick and thin - career changes, illness, multiple moves, a nightmare neighbor, and graduate school.  They learned so much about one another, shared endless amounts of joy and laughter, and have persevered the never-ending demands of their cat, Cooper.

They moved back to the mitten state to be closer to their families in the summer of 2013.  One year later in Petoskey, on a pier overlooking Lake Michigan, Brian proposed to Lauren.  She could barely speak a word through her tears and excitement, but still managed to say “YES”!
