Name: Lauren Gaffney Rearden
Wedding date: June 6, 2015
How we met: Chandler stopped me on campus one evening and introduced himself, we’ve been inseparable ever since!
How he proposed: I was visiting Chandler the last weekend in August for his first home football game. He took me out for breakfast (my favorite meal) that Saturday morning and we went and bought ammo for some target practice we had planned on doing later that day. When we returned home I was inside and chandler was outside setting up for “target practice”. He called me outside where he had a table full of the ammo lined up and the shotgun lying on the ground. He had a target setup at the base of a tree in the distance. Chandler got down on one knee, with the shotgun, as if he was aiming at the target. He then asked me to get him some shells so he could load the gun. When I opened the box of shells, the ring was inside the box and I was in complete shock! I turned to chandler with wide eyes and asked, “are you serious?!” He then took my hand and asked me to be his wife ☺️
Wedding colors: Navy and light pink
Theme: We didn’t really have a “theme” I just wanted it very classic and dainty.
Venues: The wedding ceremony was at Grace Chapel at Lenoir Rhyne University and the reception was at Moretz Mills 74 South.
Why I chose Poffie Girls: It was where my oldest sister purchased her wedding gown!
Favorite Memory: Walking down the isle and seeing Chandler for the first time. His face when I saw him will forever be in my mind.
