Kara and Drew never crossed paths early in their lives but Growing up, They had mutual friends.  Drew even rode dirt bikes at Karas next door neighbor’s house when he was in high school! In 2017, Kara was at her sister’s date to her company Christmas party and Drew worked at the same company! “I remember seeing him there that day, but it wasn’t until we matched on a dating site and he added me on Facebook that we actually had our first conversation. Thank you social media for bringing us together!“ – Kara The way Drew proposed was Very intimate! On Their second anniversary, Drew took Kara out to eat at the Lighthouse Restaurant where they had their very first date. After their meal, The waitress took them upstairs to the upstairs bar for complimentary dessert and drinks. When they went upstairs the banquet room was illuminated with candles and rose petals leading the way to a beautiful set up overlooking Cedar Lake. Thats when Drew asked to marry Kara. After saying yes and shedding some tears, he said he had one more surprise! The lights came on and the partition doors were opened.  Their whole Family and friends were waiting there to celebrate with them!

“Working with Lauren throughout this whole process was great. When I first met Lauren at our consultation, I knew she was different from the other photographers I had researched. She is, of course, insanely talented and creative, but her personality really stood out to Drew and I. We needed to have Lauren Ashley Studios shoot our wedding!! Throughout two postponements, she was so accommodating and genuinely empathetic about the situation. I could not have asked for a better vendor to go through a pandemic with. On our wedding day, Lauren made everything run smoothly. With a kind & fun-loving attitude, she was able to round up my family members and capture all of the family portraits that I wanted. Lauren also incorporated creative poses for Drew and I that resulted in amazing images! Our whole bridal party genuinely enjoyed spending our day with Lauren and MK – they are so enjoyable & made taking a ton of photos fun! ” – Kara
