Clear Cut Couples: Lauren and Connor

Lauren and Connor met in college. They knew of each other, but the first time that they really got to know each other was on an abroad trip to Asia their Senior year. Their first date was a spontaneous dinner date while they were abroad in Hong Kong and they have been together ever since (over 5 years)! They have shared so many incredible memories over the years. 

They moved around throughout their relationship, including NYC, NJ, Boston and Cape Cod. After moving into their first apartment in NYC, they added their Goldendoodle Bear to their family. Now, they are currently looking to buy a house on Cape Cod!

During the pandemic, they often walked Bear along a quiet trail nearby that leads down to the beach on Cape Cod. On Friday August 6th, they went to walk Bear down to the beach before dinner. While enjoying the sunset on the beach Connor proposed! Lauren was so surprised to see their families and friends (hers coming from NJ!) waiting at the house for them when they returned.

Lauren was so surprised! Luckily, Connor planned to have a photographer (Salomé Giafaglione Photography, @salomegiafaglionephotography) there to catch it all. As you can see in the photos, Lauren was blown away by the ring!

As for their wedding, they are taking their time planning, but looking to get married on Nantucket. Lauren grew up going there and it is part of the "Cape and Islands" for Connor's family on Cape Cod. Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
