From the Photographer

Lacy and Slater met at a party almost 5 years ago, they had mutual friends. Slater proposed to Lacy at a Christmas party in December. Lacy and Slater have a beautiful baby girl together. Their wedding is scheduled for October 2020.

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

We met at a party with mutual friends, 5 years ago in 2015. Our mutual friend helped bring us together to hangout casually after that. And then we went on a few dates.

 

What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. What makes your relationship unique?

Our relationship is so special because after our first few dates We both knew we liked each other a lot but I wasn’t ready to be tied down just yet. I like to travel so I decided to move, 5 hours away to a new city. We didn’t talk much when I moved. I dated other people and realized I missed home (and him). I ended up moving back home a few months later and Slater and I instantly continued where we left off. We became exclusive and had a baby girl 2 years later! We love our baby and having family time together.

 

How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?

I knew Slater was the one a few months into our relationship. When I realized how well he fit in with my family and how much my much parents adore him. I knew he was the one when I realized that we never fight and how easy our relationship is.

 

Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

We went to a Christmas party on December 21st, at our friends house. It was a white elephant party so I had just had a turn and picked a gift. It was his turn next and that’s when he got down on one knee in front of all of our friends! It was a surprise in the moment but I had a few hints in the week prior. He had asked me if I was going to get my nails done before Christmas (which he usually doesn’t care about) so that made me think he might do it on Christmas Day. He said he had the ring for 5 months just trying to wait for the right time. He loves halloween and we were planning on going to Halloween horror nights at at universal studios, where he was planning on proposing there but we didn’t end up having a chance to go.

 

We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

My ring is a cushion cut! He paid more for the clarity so I love how crystal clear the diamond is.

 

Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?

I am so excited for our wedding in October! We are having a beach wedding with our toes in the sand. I love boho theme with neutral colors and lots of pampas grass and white flowers.
