To begin the ceremony the pastor walked up to the alter and began telling the story of how Ryan and Lauren fell in love. As guests and family members listened to the pastor speak, I could see Ryan standing at the doorway in the back smiling and anxiously waiting to see his bride. Ryan and Lauren graduated from Midlothian High School but never even spoke one word to each other over the four years. They had all the same friends and even went on a senior missions trip to Hawaii without still any communication. It wasn't until their freshman year in college that they finally officially met. One of Lauren's best friends was having a dinner party and had invited Ryan and a few of his friends. From that day on their lives were connected and they started a path that led them to becoming Mr. & Mrs. Gilmore.
Thank you Ryan and Lauren for allowing us to be a part of your amazing wedding day. We pray that God would continue to bless you both as you grow and share all the amazing memories you will make together.
