These two. I’m so happy they found me and I cannot wait for their West Shore Cafe wedding next March. Lauren grew up in Texas so I feel right at home with her. She’s as comfortable in cowboy boots as she is in a dress. They both love day drinking and specifically, wine. They believe in the power of breakfast (and possibly even second breakfast) but we didn’t cover that. Clearly, we are meant to be best friends forever.
They have a fabulous house in Oakland that I adore and for their engagement session, of which, I shall note, Tim emphatically did not want to participate in, we decided to run around to some of their favorite picturesque neighborhood haunts that also involve wine. Lake Merritt was the perfect spot to start in: one could definitely
waste spend away the entire day drinking on the deck of The Lake Chalet. Next stop up was their local winery. Lauren and Tim are founding members of the wine club and I have to say the Zin I tried was excellent.
In the end, we ended up with an awesome batch of photos for their session and a super wonderful afternoon. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to enjoy my afternoon and evening with!
