Mark and Lauren - or MoLo, as they are affectionately known to their circle - have decidedly set the standard for the modern power couple. Each their own driven and determined individuals before they met, they had already mastered the art of taking hold of life and living to its fullest. Once they joined forces, well, the rest became history.
Exhibit 1: Lauren. a lovely and quick-witted personal trainer and Pilates instructor not for the faint hearted. Exhibit 2: Mark. An ambitious orthopedic resident with a timely week off work and a clever mother who decided to set him up for a session with the aforementioned personal trainer. This session set things in motion which would eventually bring Lauren and Mark to the center of each other’s universe. As Lauren put it, “I kicked his ass, and he fell in love”. This thoughtful pair have no shortage of adventure, affection, and gusto for life between the two of them. In fitting fashion, their wedding day was absolutely packed full of meaningful details and treasured memories honoring the friends and family that surround and support them both. As a wedding gift, Lauren presented Mark with a box full of significant items she had saved and collected since their relationship began, including the key to their first apartment, and the first love notes they ever exchanged. Mark had a necklace custom made for Lauren, engraved with her new initials. Their emotional ceremony was a beautiful tribute, incorporating anecdotes and loving advice from their family and friends. The couple put out a thoughtful display of photographs of them with each of their guests, welcoming them to fill up the display with new Polaroid photos over the course of the celebration. After an incredible gourmet dinner and a blazing red sunset over the rolling hills of vineyards, the Dan Rafferty Band rocked the dance floor into night.
