Lauren grew up in the St. Louis area and Ryan grew up in the Milwaukee area. How did these two lovers meet you ask? When Ryan took a job away from home after college, Lauren went off to college, placing the two in close proximity. Through a mutual acquaintance a meeting was arranged and Lauren got the courage to ask Ryan out. It was love at first sight……for Lauren. For Ryan it was a little more subtle, “Wow, could she be the one?”
The first date was at a pizza joint and they hit it off right away. One date became two, one month became one year and they were still in love. Two pets (a cat and then a dog), a house, and 5 years later Ryan knew Lauren was “the one”. In May 2016, Ryan arranged dozens of photos of their time and travels together, got down on one knee and proposed. Lauren and Ryan will be getting married in March 2017 in the St Louis area.
