“Engaged Twice! I (Lauren) proposed to Brooke in Tennessee the day the Supreme Court passed the marriage equality act. I just said. “We should get married”. Brooke, on the other hand, wanted to me to have a special moment. She met with our parents (Lauren & Photographer are sisters) to ask permission and proposed to me during a trivia night on Monday Night, July 6th 2015. The MC/Host of the trivia was involved and it was public and recorded. The MC asked the teams to send two people from each team up on stage. Then he asked us (in a bonus round)… what makes today significant? Brooke, shaking and nervous, raises her hand. Walks to the center of the stage and grabs the mic. She utters, in tears, “Today, is the day I ask my best friend to marry me”. This was mid game– with super strict cellphone rules due to possible cheating in the game–but they did give us 30 seconds to get it out– and so we posted on social media and returned to the game.
Note from Photographer: Lauren is my little sister. I am so excited to call them my sisters (they just got married in Hawaii), follow their journey on IG @seventhgayadventurists or www.seventhgayadventurists.com)
