Romance on romance on romance! There’s little more lovely than classic tastes, historic cities, and the beautiful eye of photographer Virgil Bunao! Lauren & Chad took their love on the sweetest of promenades for what became an enchanting love affair with the storied streets of Charleston. It’s equal parts elegant and adventuresome, a true portrait of their affections made manifest in a collection of images which speak fluent beauty!
A little love note from the couple, Lauren & Chad:
Now, this is not your classic love story where boy meets girl, a random meeting of two people where sparks fly at a bar or even where Lauren swiped right. It’s about the reconnecting of the right people in the right place at exactly the right time.
It was Fall, 2012. We were currently 226 miles apart, but that distance was about to grow smaller.
Lauren was living in New York City working at one of the world’s most recognizable fashion houses while Chad was building a career in the Digital space in our Nation’s Capital. They say it’s not always what you know, but sometimes who you know that can take you places & we were about to make that statement a reality in our own lives.
Lauren has always managed to surround herself with wonderful people, Chad was quick to make friends wherever we resided & we both shared a strong friendship up to this point that stemmed from our adolescence. This was the mirepoix that would lead to the flavor & aroma of a wonderful new relationship that was about to take place.
Having mutual friends in the city of Washington was the setting for where we began our relationship together.
The story of us is really about how people connecting, sharing good times and always being curious can really lead to a lifetime of happiness. Over the last 5 years we spent a short time apart growing our relationship and over the last 4 have enjoyed Manhattan together indulging its culture, its cuisine and most importantly its gift of success when hard work presents itself.
This coming April in Charleston we will celebrate our lifetime of love & adventure alongside our dearest friends and family and with that, we toast to those in that we are lucky to have in our lives and those yet to join this lovely time we both are having.
