Puppy Love in White & Gold: Brooke & Lauren’s Festive Wedding
Sept. 19, 2015
Not all great loves stories start at first sight. Brooke and Lauren met in February 2010, at a photo shoot, and both thought that the other’s clothes looked absolutely awful. Lauren thought Brooke’s half-shaved head and leopard dress were obnoxious, and Brooke thought Lauren’s sweats (that she changed into after her photos were taken) were not something a person should wear in public. Impressions improved at the party thrown for the photoshoot participants. An evening of drinks, a Facebook message and a few weeks later the two went on their first date.
Brooke and Lauren included their “perfect, wonderful obsession/dog,” Jelly, in their wedding party. Their florist created a wreath to go over his collar. He looked beautiful and so happy trotting down the aisle, even if the wedding ceremony was so boring that he fell asleep on the train of Lauren’s dress. Since the wedding date was his fourth birthday, they had everyone sing “Happy Birthday” to him during their ceremony and when Lauren’s dad told them to “kiss your one true love,” they both ran over to Jelly to kiss him first. A registered therapy dog, Jelly was unshaken by the crowds, music, and excitement.
