Laura and Scott's Wedding

June 18, 2011

How we met...

Scott and Laura met on the 10th floor of Lord and Taylor. They were both striving to further their fashion careers and found each other sharing a cubicle wall. Scott would forward all the customer complaints to Laura that he could (typical Scott move). When Laura caught on she began to wonder about this Scott guy (cute, smart, good sense of humor). Scott took Laura out to dinner as a friendly gesture on her birthday and they dated from then on. Laura eventually transferred departments and left the state for a different career. For 2 1/2 years Scott and Laura had a long distance relationship (PA to NYC). The couple then decided to take a risk, move in together and actually be in the same state. They moved to Hawaii and the rest is tropical history.

Engagement story...

The morning of Laura's birthday, Scott took Laura to Sea Life Park (this is where the movie 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore was filmed). They got to pet/dance with the dolphins and then explore the amazing park (penguins, sea turtles, sharks, sea lions, etc.)!

On the way home, they headed over to their favorite blow-hole (yep...laugh it up) "Spitting Caves". This is a hidden local spot where the water rushes into a cave and spits it back out with tremendous force making a beautiful scene. Scott and Laura like to sit on the wind/sea-eroded rocks above the cave and watch the sunset over the ocean. Scott had brought a bottle of wine to "celebrate Laura's birthday". After the wine was popped, Scott popped the question! What a perfect day to ask such an important question...5 years after their very first date. Yes, Scott got down on one knee and pulled out an amazing ring. Scott is now stuck with Laura forever!
