In June, Lauren and Erik tied the knot and I had the honor and joy of flying out to New Jersey to capture it all. The whole day was so much fun! One example of this was during the reception, which featured a lot of classic love songs, including some from the movie The Parent Trap, Lauren and her twin sister Netty spontaneously got a chance to do the handshake from the movie.The entire day was filled with so much joy and excitment They have such a sweet love story, so I’ll let Lauren tell you a little bit about how it all began:
“Erik and I met while being camp counsellors at a camp in Pennsylvania when I was 16 and he was 15. We wrote letters to each other for two months after camp ended. We were just writing letters as friends but when he called me beautiful in a letter it was clear that there was something more there. We went on our first date to chili’s back in 2010 and would see each other once a month for the following two years of high school. I lived by the city and he by the beach so we were an hour away from each other. A lot of driving and train rides! We continued to date throughout college making our distance up to 5 hour drive and seeing each other once a month. Towards the end of college Erik proposed.”
And the rest is history! Congratulations you two!!
