It's not every day you get to celebrate an engagement at the White House when it's decorated for the holidays! Congrats to John and Lauren.
John and Lauren met in June 2017 on Match.com. Their first date was on a Friday night at Sienna Mercato, where they enjoyed meatballs and drank late into the night. The date went so well that we saw each other the rest of that weekend! Three weeks later they took a spontaneous week-long trip to Puerto Rico, where the relationship was made official on July 5, 2017.
Over the next year and a half, their love for one another continued to grow. They experienced many changes in their lives including moving, graduating, and changing jobs. They knew early on that they'd found 'the one', and so on December 14, 2018, John proposed to Lauren during a tour of the West Wing at the White House in Washington, D.C.! With a little help from the Secret Service and a beautifully designed ring, Lauren said yes!
