Real Wedding: Derel and Lauren (Texas)

Derel and Lauren are a good example of how a blind date can actually go right!

Taking the advice of her cousin, Lauren reluctantly agreed to go on a blind date with Darel and to her surprise, the two instantly hit it off! The couple spent the next year maintaining a long-distance relationship.

Then on Christmas Eve of 2015, Lauren’s world was about to change. After finishing some last-minute Christmas shopping, Lauren come home to romantic décor, with various flowers and candles, decorated by Derel’s son. Derel then dropped down to one knee and proposed. 

The couple were marred on August 27, 2016 in Texas. Check out pictures from Derel and Lauren’s Black Nuptials below, as beautifully captured by Tifanie Parry Photography.
