Lauren + Eli met when they were both working as baristas at Jittery Joe’s, a local coffee shop, but they were not able to start their love journey quite yet because Lauren was dating someone else. They got along really well and once Lauren and her now ex-boyfriend broke up Eli saw his opportunity and asked her if she wanted to come over to watch a movie. Even though Lauren had never thought about dating Eli before she suddenly realized how nervous she was to go on a date with him! They had an absolute blast that night and have been dating ever since! Lauren says that “Eli is unpretentious, completely genuine and true to himself no matter what. He has a quirky, offbeat sense of humor that others often don’t understand, but he frequently makes me laugh so hard that I fall asleep with sore abs.” They have been together for almost 10 years now and they truly are soul mates!
Their wedding celebration around Athens, Ga was so relaxed and euphoric. Lauren + Eli were so happy to celebrate the love that they have for each other with all their friends and family! It was such a special day, and we love how they used Jittery Joe’s coffee as their wedding favor to remind them of the place where they first fell in love!
Congratulations Lauren + Eli!! xoxo, The OLAS Team
