Before Matthew and Lauren had their blush and burgundy wedding, their love story began in the fall of 2016.
On a Sunday morning in 2016, Matthew texted his college best friend, Ford, that he met the most beautiful girl. Ford instantly recognized Matthew’s love interest as his girlfriend’s sorority sister and quickly organized a get-together for the friends. Lauren and Matt talked for hours, discussing everything under the sun and quickly realizing how much they had in common. Lauren fell in love with Matthew’s honesty and ability to make her laugh, while Matthew loved Lauren’s zeal for life and ambition.
