Good old fashion word of mouth is how I was lucky enough to meet Aaron and Lauren, who got married last Saturday at the charming Scribner Bend Vineyard near Sacramento. Their wedding was a country affair, with cowboy hats, boots and of course some really yummy BBQ. But all of that was just a backdrop of a really beautiful union between a really sweet couple. Their story Lauren and Aaron's story is like a bad made for TV movie: Two elementary school teachers who met years ago and never gave each other a second thought, suddenly found themselves both single, and teaching at the same tiny school. Not only were they at the same school, but Lauren taught 5th grade, and Aaron taught 6h, so you can imagine the excitement buzzing around the little campus when they publically announced that they were dating at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year.
Once the initial excitement died down, the relationship continued to progress until April 4th 2012, when Aaron asked Lauren to make an honest man out of him at the top of the Martis Camp Express chairlift at Northstar Ski Resort. It was very romantic with the sideways snow landing in their hot dogs, and the slightly soggy potato chips, so of course Lauren said yes. For the rest of the day, she called a different friend on the phone each time they got on a lift to fill them in on the big news.
