How we met: WELL, the first or second time? Ethan and I grew up going to Bethel Baptist Church. He was two grades below me (a year and 4 months younger. IM A COUGAR), so I was “too cool” to hang out with him. We would text, as friends, occasionally. We eventually stopped texting and I didn’t hear from him again until I was on campus corner in Norman. I saw him at a bar and thought “he’s cute! Oh I know him!” I went up to say hi and he didn’t say much. He was probably getting back at me for breaking his 8th grade heart back in the day. Any ways... he played cool and only said a few words. Later that week, I messaged him on Facebook and said it was nice to see him again. And BOOM. I knew he was the one! Plus, he has a great beard... he had to be the one. :)

What we love about OKC: We didn’t go to the city much until a couple of years ago. Now we both work in okc and can’t get enough. We LOVE the atmosphere of the non-college town. Everyone is so nice and friendly! We love going to Fassler Hall and we love eating all the yummy food okc has to offer. We can’t get enough!

What are you most looking forward to on your wedding day?

Lauren: I am looking forward to partying/celebrating with all of my favorite people! I cannot wait to marry my best friend. I know nothing about planning a wedding and I have no idea what I’m doing, but I know I want a PARTY!

Ethan: I am looking forward to having a party, as well! I can’t wait to marry my best friend and have the best day ever. It’s going to be a celebration!
