Lauren & Larry 1.12.08

What an amazing story Lauren and Larry have. They've survived the challenges of a long-distance courtship by having dinner "together" via web cam! I was especially honored to be their emcee because of Larry's service to our country.

I enjoyed working with Photographer Randall Baughn and his wife Joanna. A.J. Ploughe and his staff at the Columbia Club were excellent (as usual!) and the ballroom was beautifully decorated.

There were so many personal touches - family friend Carol played the grand piano in the lobby for cocktail hour; Steve gave a heartfelt prayer and explained how he's always called Lauren his "little princess;" Lauren's parents Bob and Sharon thoroughly enjoyed their dance together. Cheers to Lauren & Larry - now LLW!
