It started by being brave, it started with vulnerability, it started with taking a risk, it started by asking a question… as a result her life was forever changed.
A Brave Question
The summer of 2015 found LawraLynn embarking on an adventure to CO with two girlfriends (I was one of them). Little did she know getting on the plane that she would soon meet Daniel, her best friend and love of her life. Attending Pursuit, a singles conference in Colorado Springs, was the main event of our trip. On the last night LawraLynn gathered her courage, approached one of the speakers and his wife who live near her, and asked if they knew of eligible men she could meet for a casual coffee etc. After getting to know her a bit better they both thought of the same guy who may have common interests and values as she. As a result their first coffee date was set.
The hour coffee date turned into a six hour event – you could say they hit it off!
A Day Long Proposal
Six months of intentional dating, three hour drives to see each other, and flying to meet family members led to an epic proposal. Daniel planned a DAY LONG and city wide six month anniversary celebration that culminated with his proposal. It all started with a Nat King Cole impersonator showing up at Lawralynn’s work singing L-O-V-E along with a clue to her next “event”. Friends appeared at various points of the day to give clues, a ride to the spa, shopping instructions, etc. Being part of this amazing day by holding the last clue before they headed to a fancy dinner where Daniel proposed was an honor.
Joy permeated every moment of their wedding day; it was almost tangible. Many friends and family members had prayed for each of them in their single years for a fitting spouse. This made the celebration of their marriage all the sweeter. Creating the floral decor for these dear friends along with celebrating their intentional love was a great honor!
Happy One Year Anniversary Daniel & LawraLynn!
