Real Love Story - Michael + Lauren

Michael and Lauren met in high school at Presbyterian Campus Ministry at NC State University.  After they had become friends and later a couple, they were enjoying life together in Raleigh when Michael decided to put a ring on it.  They got engaged after dinner at Jimmy Vs.  

The couple planned a beautiful ceremony at their church and guests headed to Marbles for a reception.  They were greeted with a Instax photo guest book and appetizers by Cafe Luna.  Guests were also invited to play throughout the museum.  After introductions and first dances (you would not believe the father/daughter dance, it totally rocked!), Cafe Luna presented a buffet to end all buffets!  The party really kicked off with The Radio Narks band playing into the night.  When it was time for dessert, the happy couple cut a cheesecake dripping in chocolate and guests were served a variety of flavors including seasonal pumpkin spice!  The couple and their families worked really hard on a lot of DIY projects.  They did all of their signage and their centerpieces.  They also prepared succulents as favors for guests to take home.  A touching display of wedding photos of parents and grandparents were on one wall in the large open space and a slideshow of Michael and Lauren's adventures together ran on the display screens.  After much merriment, the Mr. and Mrs. were ushered out under a canopy of sparklers.

We wish Michael and Lauren all the happiness and adventure life has to offer!
