When Kyle grabbed Lauren’s hand one Christmas morning and asked her to stand while he knelt next to the presents under their tree, their storybook romance was complete!

The narrative of how they met was just as classic as the heirloom engagement ring he held out to her on that special day. “We met in High School in 2007,” she says “and when we took marine biology together my senior year, I asked him to my prom… just as friends. But, the more we hung out, the more we liked each other.” As we know, they didn’t stay ‘just friends’ for long! “We started dating in 2008, right before the prom.”

For many, the High School romance would have stopped there, not so for Lauren and Kyle. They ended up at the same college and the romance continued to bloom, all culminating on that beautiful day in July when their friends and family made toasts to their future, sipping their signature cocktail appropriately named, “High School Sweethearts.”



Lauren came to Le Bella Donna in search for wedding dress that could match the romance of her story with Kyle. “I wasn’t sure of the type of dress I wanted, and I was leaning towards strapless.” She said she felt beautiful in all the different gowns “But, when I tried on the capped sleeve (a classic Justin Alexander dress), I fell in love with it.”

When talking about their magical day, Lauren told us “I absolutely loved my dress. I’ve gotten so many compliments about how classy and elegant it was, not to mention timeless!”



We asked what her favorite part of the wedding was and if she had any advice for future Le Bella Donna brides, her response was perfect:

“My favorite part about my wedding was seeing my husband look the happiest he’s ever been and being surrounded by people who care about us.” And she tells future brides: “Don’t stress about the little things because nobody but you will notice, we had to stop the ceremony to cut the pillow ribbon off our rings, my mom didn’t bustle my dress correctly, I rested my head on my husband’s chest and realized my hair was caught in his boutonniere! But nobody noticed.” She says, “Take time on your wedding day to realize how many people care about you.”

Lauren, we couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations Lauren and Kyle!
