Lauren and Nick were born and raised in Las Vegas and also attended the same high school. However, since Nick was one year younger than Lauren, being high school sweethearts was unfortunately out of the question. It was not until seven years later that one of Lauren’s friends reconnected them and they began dating in 2011. The couple soon became inseparable and decided to move to Southern California together in early 2012.

On September 1, 2013, Lauren had been out of town for work and upon her return she found a dozen red roses on the kitchen counter. From a distance, Lauren saw a card and as she got closer, she noticed it was from a jeweler and just thought it was junk mail. As Lauren turned around to ask Nick what it was, he was standing there sweating and shaking with a ring in his hand and asked Lauren to marry him. It turned out the card was indeed from the jeweler who designed the ring congratulating the couple on their engagement.

Then, Lauren and Nick got to begin planning one of the happiest days of their lives. Thank you for letting Bridal Spectacular share your beautiful Las Vegas wedding with our readers!

A Glimpse at Lauren and Nick’s Wedding

To help plan their dream wedding, Lauren and Nick attended one of our great Bridal Spectacular shows to get them started. After all of their research, they chose to get married at the stunning Southern Highlands Golf Club and selected the extraordinary Adam Frazier Photography to document their special day.

Lauren and Nick’s wedding took place on September 27, 2014 as they overlooked Southern Highlands Golf Club’s breathtaking grounds paired with views of the stunning Las Vegas Strip. From day one, the couple said it was always important to pay close attention to detail. They displayed their baby pictures and engagement photos on easels, along with customized signs with the names of the bridal party and a heartfelt thank you note to all of the guests. During the reception, Art of Flavors set up a gelato bar featuring a variety of flavors for their guests to enjoy. Each guest was also given a selection of macaroons from Sweets 507 to take home as their favor. In addition, the entertainment by Harry O Productions kept the dance floor full all night long and everyone had a great time.

The couple said if they had to describe their wedding day in one word, it would be magical. “We were so fortunate to have our wedding at the most beautiful venue and to work with such talented, hard-working vendors that made our wedding day go by without a flaw,” Lauren said. “Being in one room with all of your closest family and friends and having them share the most special day of our lives with us was a feeling that is truly indescribable. It was truly a day filled with an abundance of love, laughter, and happiness. We wish we could relive the day over and over again!”

If a picture speaks a thousand words, then these photos by Adam Frazier will speak volumes of the sheer love and joy Lauren and Nick shared together and with their guests on this very special day. Enjoy!
