Lauren & Tim: A Modern Wedding in Hamilton, NJ

Lauren and Tim both designed T-shirt graphics for the same company and met each other at a promotional party. Tim liked one of my designs that was on display and asked the owner of the company to introduce us, recalls Lauren. The two exchanged conversation and email addresses that evening and soon found that they lived only ten minutes apart. The Bride Lauren Sykes, 26 The Groom Timothy (Tim) Dinofa, 31 The Date August 11 The night before their two-year anniversary, Tim blindfolded Lauren and surprised her with candles, a bubble bath, wine, roses, and a love poem he had written for her. On the wall I hung a large oil painting that I painted for her that incorporated the words 'Will You Marry Me?' Later, he presented Lauren with a custom-designed ring, and the two began planning what Lauren calls their first true art project together -- their wedding.
