Lauren and Bryan

I have dreamed of this moment my entire life and Bryan made it picture perfect- literally! I am the definition of a daddy’s girl and Bryan knew it was important to me that my dad was involved in our engagement. He planned a trip to the TX beach for my birthday weekend. The trip itself was a huge surprise so I wasn’t expecting anything.

Bryan told me he wanted to take me to a nice birthday dinner. We enjoyed a gorgeous dinner right on the beach with delicious food and some fancy drinks! After dinner he asked if I wanted to go for a walk. We had only been walking a minute or so and Bryan asked to borrow my phone. Without thinking anything of it I said “sure!”.

I stood there shocked when I realized he was saying “hello” to my dad on the other line. My dad moved to South Carolina when I was very young and I have always made an effort to remain close with despite the distance. Bryan went on to fill my dad in on our trip so far but then told him that he had an even bigger reason to call.

Standing in front of me, Bryan told my dad that he was in love with his daughter… And asked for his blessing in marriage. I don’t think I even blinked I was in such shock! He then got down on one knee and pulled out the ring of my dreams from his pocket. In the midst of saying “yes, yes, yes!”

Bryan went on to say he had one more surprise. He pointed to a blonde across the beach holding a camera and said “see that girl over there… She is here for us…”

Photography has always been a huge part of my life and it made the best moment…(if possible) even better! I am beyond blessed to call Bryan my future husband. It hasn’t always been the easy road, but I couldn’t imagine living this life of mine without him by my side!
