With Sam and Lauren getting married this week we thought this was a good time to showcase their engagement session. We asked them some questions about how they met and their upcoming wedding so read below about this adorable couple and enjoy their engagement session with their wedding photographer Eric Boneske.
How did the two of you meet?
We both traveled to London for work as part of our companies training program. We had connected over the work chat system before leaving and texted to meet up once we landed in London. We messaged to meet at the entrance of the London Bridge tube station. Sam was so specific "To meet at the entrance right over Tooly Street where there is a newspaper stand, on the northside of the station." He said "I will have a baby blue pocket square on my jacket."
The excitement of a new country/city took over when I walked out of the station and paused on the sidewalk. When I saw him walking towards me, he had a happy glow around him. While I evaluated him since we were competing for work, I knew immediately that we were definitely going to be good friends, and over the new few weeks, I knew he was one of a kind.
Sam how did you propose?
We went on a Sunday with three of our closest friends to a Virginia winery. Lauren thought we had tasting tickets from a charity raffle from a friend, but our friends were all in on the secret plan to propose in the vineyard after the tasting and went ahead to set up a little spot.
After the tasting, we walked through the vineyard and stopped where a picnic basket was set up. Lauren thought it was cute that someone was having a picnic and didn't catch on until she saw pictures of us, our initials, flowers (and until I dropped to one knee).
Our friends caught it all on camera and we all celebrated with a bottle of prosecco. She never saw it coming!! The funniest part was that she had planned her friends surprise engagement at the same time her friends helped planned ours and neither of them knew.
With your wedding a week away, what are you most excited about?
We are excited to see it all come together after many month of planning. We can't wait to eat and drink with ou friends and family from all over the world. But most of all we are most excited to finally be married!!
