Lauren arrived in Vienna the same week as I did, at the beginning of 2014. We had many great times during the year & a half we were there together, from seeing Swan Lake at the Vienna Opera House to experiencing heat-induced hysteria on a summer trip to Geneva. Roaming through various cities & countries, sharing an apartment and all of the joys and difficulties of navigating life in another country, laughing a whole lot. Working alongside one another on a great team committed to seeing revival happen across Germany, Austria, & Switzerland. Watching the young people of that region grow in so many areas. And of course, drinking all the coffee in Vienna.
Lauren connected with Josh in her first few months in Vienna. They had their first date in Paris. She went back to America to see him; he came to Vienna to see her. And one day, he flew in unexpectedly and proposed to her on a horse-drawn carriage ride through the beautiful Vienna streets. We all celebrated together later that night!
I am so thankful I got to go come back to the US to photograph their big day. Much love & best wishes, Lauren & Josh!
