Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
If this wedding looks familiar to you, it’s only because we’ve been lowkey obsessed with it from day one. Lauren and Tyler Pierce’s cake topper has been the header image for our Facebook and Twitter, and it’s currently the page image for our real wedding submission form.
Lauren and Tyler are getting ready to celebrate the first anniversary of their elegant wedding at The Vault in Downtown Columbus. The two met while Lauren was tending bar and Tyler gained the “liquid courage” needed to talk to her, says Lauren. But that wasn’t necessary for the proposal; he took Lauren to Antrim Park, where the couple often walks their dog, Bo, around sunset. Lauren was suspicious, because this particular outing was taken sans pup.
“Before I knew it, he was on one knee asking to spend forever together,” Lauren remembers.
