When I asked Lauren and Cole about how they met, they said, “We could start out by saying ‘TINDER SUCCESS’.” Yes, you read that right, Cole and Lauren met on the well-known dating app and fell madly in love. Shortly after they met, Cole took a job in Odessa and these two ventured into the long-distant dating, exploring West Texas and spending a lot of their time in Dallas. This beautiful couple took some time apart to balance out their lives and focus on their relationship with God.Cole ended up in town after having shoulder surgery and Lauren went to visit him. That’s when they rekindled their relationship, even through the pain medication! This time, things were different. They had balance between work, family, friends, and health and were truly committed to each other! Team Loco was here to stay! Though the next year and half Lauren and Cole enjoyed going to A&M tailgates and enjoying the road trip to DFW.
The proposal took place at Grape Creek Winery in Fredericksburg, TX. Cole told Lauren they were going to do a winery tour before their parents showed up for the weekend. This was the perfect opportunity and Lauren says that looking back she should have seen it coming! During their tasting, Cole was drinking a little longer than everyone else. Liquid courage, possibly? The tour even came with a photographer! Not really, he was just there to capture the proposal. Once the tour was over, Cole pulled Lauren aside and said he had a book made of their relationship. They read it together in the vineyard and relived many wonderful memories! The last page was him on one knee! Cole, you thought of everything!
