Wedding Wednesday: The Timofeev Wedding

The Timofeev Wedding | May 27, 2017 | Photography by: Anna and Liz Photography

Lauren McMillan was at the 2015 Addy Awards representing her marketing agency when she met Brad Timofeev. The group was supposed to go out for a nightcap to celebrate the evening's wins, but by the end of the night, only Lauren and Brad were ready to keep the evening going. They went out for one more drink and wound up spending the rest of the night laughing and sharing stories. On a family vacation in July 2016, everyone stepped outside after dinner for a little beach time. Lauren's son Jax yelled for them to look up in the sky at the plan, though Lauren only looked up after Brad's mother urged her to do so. She saw a plane soaring overhead with a sign that read, "Lauren will you marry me? Love, Brad." Lauren was so excited as she turned to find Brad on one knee in the sand, and their proposal was captured both by Jax's GoPro and bystanders on the beach who proceeded to clap and cheer for the happy couple. 

Lauren's favorite moment of the day by far was when Brad's groomsman, Rob, busted out summer sausage from his suit jacket, sliced it with his pocketknife and proceeded to pass pieces out to the bridal party during group photos. It turned out Rob had packed six sausages in his tux, hanging on to their little snack throughout the ceremony! Lauren says it was "absolutely hilarious, spontaneous, delicious and a nice comic pause from the chaos and stress of the photo session." Lauren knows their beautiful wedding was unique in part thanks to their venue, which offered a gorgeous, affordable space with plenty of flexibility for the day's customizations. Along with their fantastic DJ, who had the guests dancing all night long, and their catering, Lauren and Brad say it was absolutely a perfect day to celebrate their new life together.
