Clear Cut Couples: Sal and Lauren
Sal and Lauren met on the dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel! Sal had a line on his profile that he was searching for the best chicken parmesan in NY and Lauren messaged him immediately to stop searching because it was at her grandma's house. And that is how Lauren became both the first and the last girl Sal would talk to on a dating app!
For their first date, they met for drinks at the Seville. They got a little tipsy there on some very delicious cocktails and then wandered around outside chatting and laughing the night away. They have been inseparable for 3+ years now!
They have shared so many incredible memories over the years! The main highlight of their relationship was adopting and raising their precious Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix, Cannoli, together. Other highlights include traveling the world together, actually enjoying workout dates with each other and cooking for each other (Sal once made a homemade mac & cheese so cheesy on one of their earlier dates - they both had to take a nap to recover from it)!
They were vacationing at the Ritz-Carlton Aruba (their first post-quarantine escape!) and Sal had a private sunset beach dinner set up for Lauren. He had arranged for the archway leading up to the table to be beautifully decorated with flowers and had plenty of champagne ready to follow.
Lauren knew it was coming on the trip, but the set-up, day and time were all a complete surprise. Lauren was so shocked and is obsessed with how the ring came out. She had provided some early guidance on the types of rings she was interested in, but she said that Sal and The Clear Cut exceeded her expectations with the final outcome!
They are getting married at a mansion on Long Island in 2022 surrounded by their family and friends. Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
