Engagement Profile: Nick & Lauren


      How did the two of you meet? Tell us about your first date.

We met at New Earth Music Hall through Nick’s sister Michele. We enjoyed some moonshine that I smuggled in and some good tunes. Our first date was at Shokitini Sushi, which is still one of our favorite restaurants today. 

         How did he/she propose? Did you know it was coming?

Nick asked me to marry him in the beautiful Incan Ruins of Machu Picchu. We had been planning on traveling to Peru for years, so the trip was very special and his proposal made it even more magical. We spent the rest of the day enjoying the beauty of the mountains and the rest of the trip exploring Cusco and the coast of Lima. I was unsure of his proposal. I did not think it was coming, until he got my nails done for me as a “gift” for my first year teaching. When I started thinking it was because he was going to propose, Nick steered me in the other direction. This left me surprised when I saw him down on one knee.

        When did you know that he/she was “the one”?

After Nick and I graduated college, he left to travel in South America for a couple of months. On his adventure down south, he realized that I was the one and wanted to be with me forever. 

        How did you hear about T.K. Anderson Designs?

We are very close friends with Wes Anderson. He has been a big part of Nick and I’s relationship since the beginning. Wes has been a very good friend to both of us before and throughout our entire relationship. We see Wes as family who will always be dear to our hearts.

        What was your favorite part about working with the T.K. Anderson team?

Wes and I share very similar tastes in artwork, music, and design. I enjoyed working together to design a very unique ring that Lauren would love and cherish.

      Bride, what do you like most about your new ring?

My beautiful ring is one a kind, very specially designed for me, and collaborated between two of my favorite people! I like the etching on the band that creates a texture of a tree. Its truly beautiful and unique to me!

       What are you most excited for in your future together?

We are excited to grow together through challenges and love. We look forward to continue traveling together and helping each other with our passions through life. We’re happy to spend life side by side with our lovely pups!
