Lauren and Justin

How We Met

We met back in 2010. I was working at a sushi bar and a mutual friend of ours came walking in to have dinner with some friends,  including Justin. My friend approached me and said what do you think of my friend sitting over there? I said well he’s pretty cute, so I went over and introduced myself. He invited me out to get drinks with the group once I got off work, I said yes, and the rest is history!

How He Asked

We had planned a family vacation a year in advance. My parents, his parents, and us set sail on 9/12/2015 for an amazing southern Caribbean cruise! We had terrible turbulence flying to Puerto Rico and I became very ill with a horrible case of Vertigo! I actually spent the whole trip in the cabin and didn’t enjoy any of it. Apparently I was the only one that didn’t know of the “proposed plan”, no pun intended! After countless nights of champagne and a cake delivered to the table for us, I finally made it out of the cabin to enjoy the last night of our cruise! It was then that the love of my life  tricked me into taking pictures, when in fact he got down on one knee behind me! It definitely was a bittersweet trip to say the least, and a funny story to tell our grandchildren one day!
