The brides have been together for six years now, and they’d been acquaintances for a while before that. “We didn’t truly meet until my best friend from college reintroduced us,” Jaclyn said. “After a night of dancing and a series of Orange Crushes, we realized there was something special there.” Jaclyn described the proposal this way: I was completely surprised. Lauren mentioned this great Groupon deal and made it sound like we were just going on another fun mini-vacation after Christmas, before I had to go back to work. We spent the morning hiking, and then ventured to this beautiful vineyard called Philip Carter Winery. After a picnic lunch and a bottle of wine, Lauren popped the question by opening a memory box I had made for her our first Christmas. Inside were rose petals and a ring box in the middle. She asked me if I would spend the rest of my life with her, and my tear-filled response was, “Of course!” We spent the afternoon laughing, crying, drinking wine, and calling loved ones.
