Lauren says she met Andrew in the fifth grade at a school concert, but Andy swears they didn’t meet until seventh grade. Either way, they dated for three months in high school, split up, and then reconnected their freshman year of college. After three and a half years of “grown-up love” (as Andy likes to call it), the two were staying at Andy's parents' house in Northern Michigan to ring in the New Year.
The Bride Lauren Maiman, 25, a public relations consultant
The Groom Andrew MacKellar, 25, an operations coordinator
The Date July 11
After a day of exploring the area, Andy proposed back at the house, in front of a crackling fire. Lauren wanted a summer wedding, so instead of rushing, she and Andy gave themselves a whole 18 months to plan their day at the Oakland Hills Country Club, where Lauren had always imagined getting married.
