Raffaele and Lauren

How We Met

We met during the preseason while playing college soccer at Lenoir-Rhyne University. The first time I saw Raffaele I jokingly told my friends “ I’m going to marry him” (who knew that would actually happen!)

How He Asked

The proposal happened at Hanging Rock State Park. It was a huge surprise to me. Raffaele had been planning with my family and his for 2 months before. He got down on one knee in front of A LOT of people, it was amazing and I will never forget it!!

Special Thanks
