I remember like it was yesterday... the first day I met Lauren & Sebastian. There they sat on my white couch across the coffee table from me in my home, holding hands and beaming. Lauren began to tell the story of how they met at Norwalk Community College and couldn't stop looking at Sebastian while recalling the beginning of their relationship. She must have said what a sweet and great guy she thought he was when they first met at least a dozen times, with this look of a girl totally head over heels in love with the man of her dreams. Sebastian added in details she left out of the story with a joy and heart clearly bursting with that happiness that comes when you are with your soul mate. It was right from then, from he very beginning, I could tell they were a special couple.
Lauren and Sebastian had class together at NCC and one day he walked up to her introduced himself and they struck up a conversation. Yes, just like that. Lauren was impressed by this sweet guy with a heart of gold. After talking more and more when they saw one another at school, Lauren told her mom about Sebastian and the great conversations they had and her mom looked at her like only a mom can and said, "he likes you!" Lauren didn't really think so but as weeks turned into months eventually Lauren knew what her mom had been telling her all along, that Sebastian liked her. When Lauren finally said that she thought her mom was right and that Sebastian liked her, all her mom could do was say "Oh really.... Duh!" with a huge grin on her face! Safe to say the feeling was mutual, Lauren was smitten!
Lauren and Sebastian's Glen Island Harbour Club wedding was absolutely breathtaking from beginning to end, with exquisite details and sweet moments. A little sparkle and a lot of joy filled their day, and the excitement that I witnessed the first time I met them was there throughout the celebration... times a million. It was a once in a lifetime celebration that won't soon be forgotten!
Lauren & Sebastian - The love you have and the excitement you share just being together is undeniable. What a joy it has been getting to know you both since that day we sat around our coffee table in our home and heard about your love story and the plans for the next chapter of your lives. We adore you both and couldn't be happier for you! Congrats!
