Lauren and Nick met at a UNC-Asheville basketball game, where he was the coach and she worked with the Big South Conference. They were friends for several years before finally beginning to date.
Three months before Nick proposed, he and Lauren were eating Chinese takeout, and her fortune said: “remember this date three months from now.” A week before Christmas (and exactly three months later!), Nick gave Lauren a present. It was a piece of his late grandmother’s luggage with her initials “LM” embroidered on it. He told her he wanted those initials to be her new initials!
The couple is planning a soft pink and gray themed wedding at the National Golf Club on August 12 and had their engagement photographs shot in Southern Pines, NC – Lauren’s hometown.
