One of my favorite things about my business is getting to pour into the lives of young women who contact me about working for me. I get to be a small part of their lives and am often a confidant and mentor during their time with me.
Since I only have sons, it is special to me to have some "daughters" out there to love and support during their time at Texas A&M. Lauren Merryman was one of my "girls" for a few years as she pursued her degree and received her Professional Event Management Certification. Lauren's first wedding to work was one of our most hectic ones for several reasons. She impressed me because she kept a smile and great attitude throughout the event and even wanted to come back! I was thrilled a couple of years later when she asked if she could do her internship with me.
Austin and Lauren met early in their college years and were "attached at the hip" as she would often say. They are die hard Aggie fans, and Austin was in the Corps of Cadets as well. During football season, you could always find them at the games and events surrounding games. Their photo even appeared on the concession cups during one of the football seasons.
Their wedding was perfect because Lauren had been a part of the process of planning several of our weddings and worked numerous ones, so she knew what she wanted and understood good boundaries for not having too much. We loved every second of this fun couple's big day and are just thrilled that they tied the knot (finally).
Congratulations to these two lovebirds!
