If you were to ask us to name two people we believe could not be more deserving of a lifetime of happiness with their best friend by their side, our answer would undoubtedly be Lauren + Nick. These two love each other both equal parts fiercely and tenderly. They are never without grace for the other, and they model a Christ-like love on a daily basis to everyone they come in contact with. We cannot say it enough: we are truly blessed to call them two of our dearest friends!
We met Nick before he and Lauren started dating, on a trip to Zambia, where we saw firsthand his servant's heart on full display. Nick is a tall man, and one of few words, and one might be intimidated by him upon first glance, but it takes just a minute to realize how kind, compassionate, and deeply loyal he is. Watching him hold the hands of so many orphans and hurting Zambians in Africa showed us this was a man who deserved the most amazing love in the world — one that he would later discover in Lauren.
Similarly, we also met Lauren prior to her and Nick beginning their relationship. We quickly fell in love with her passion for telling stories, her zeal and tenacity to accomplish anything that was put in front of her, and, above all, her heart and desire to love on those around her. Honestly, we couldn't imagine a more perfect match than these two. When we heard the news that they were going to spend the rest of their lives together, well, let's just say there were a lot of happy tears that day!
It can hardly be a surprise that their wedding day was absolute perfection. Everything was wonderful, every moment was filled to the brim with joy and laughter, and everyone that gathered together with them on this day was ready to celebrate one of the truest loves we've ever seen. Here's to wishing these two a lifetime of happiness and never knowing a day without the other!
