He planned the perfect get away trip. They had great weather, a wonderful city to explore and at the top of Mt. California, Brent and Lauren only had their love for each other. Which is why there could be no better moment
for Brent to get down on one knee and propose to the woman he wanted to have life’s greatest adventure with.
Of course, through tears of happiness and the warning for him to not drop the ring over the mountain, Lauren said yes.
“It was most amazing because it was just he and I on top of this beautiful mountain with these insanely gorgeous views and no other people in sight,” Lauren says. “I couldn’t have wished for a better engagement than if I
had planned it myself.”
While she didn’t plan her engagement, Lauren did make sure each wedding detail was perfect and had a special meaning.
The music at the ceremony was handpicked to represent their personalities.
“We both really love 80’s music and think its beautiful when played with strings,” Lauren says.
The family and bridal party walked to “With or Without You” by U2, and her own processional was “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure, which is a song Lauren and father chose before she even met Brent.
To incorporate Brent’s ties with the Marines, the couple used his sword to cut the cake.
Even though Brent and Lauren are not from New Orleans, they wanted their wedding to be an intimate affair that showed their guests the reason why they love the city so much.
“We shared with our guests all of our favorite areas to explore, shops, restaurants and bars,” Lauren says. “Most of our guests made a vacation out of our wedding weekend and had a great time exploring the city.”
“It was exactly what Brent and I envisioned and it was amazing to see all of our year long planning come to fruition,” Lauren says. “The whole night was one we won’t ever forget.”
