Mr. and Mrs. Longnaker

 Chase & Lauren were married on September 2nd, 2017, at the Corner House Bed & Breakfast in Rockport, IN. It was a gorgeous wedding filled with lots of love, joy, and personal touches from the sweet couple. The bride put so much time and effort into doing many of her own flower arrangements and decorations, and it turned out absolutely stunning, as you can see from the photos of their day!  Chase and Lauren met the summer after their freshman year of college when they attended Summer Project through Campus Outreach. She stood out to him from everyone else due to her love of fishing, and they reconnected 5 years later through social media. Lauren first noticed Chase’s love for the Lord, and it was his goofy and vivacious personality that drew her to him. Lauren especially loves Chase’s warm and caring spirit and how fantastic he is with kids. She says she is so thankful that God created someone with all of these characteristics specifically for her. As a couple, they hope and strive to build each other up and push each other toward the Gospel.  To ask Lauren to be his wife, Chase orchestrated a big proposal day involving both of their families camping and hanging out on her family farm. He made her a scrapbook and wrote her a poem, and at the end of the poem, it said that he had a very important question to ask… So he asked, and Lauren was completely surprised! After proposing, they celebrated with all their closest friends who were eagerly waiting for them.  In thinking back to their wedding day, Lauren loves how it was so uniquely   them  . They were able to honor their family members who were no longer living, to use the glasses with which her parents toasted at their wedding, to toast with the champagne from Chase’s parents’ wedding, and to have family members write letters to put into the unity box that they built. The entire day had so much meaning and purpose for them, especially in sharing it with those they love most. Lauren also got to surprise her mother by dancing with her to one of their favorite songs from childhood, “Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog,” which she vividly remembers her mother always singing at the top of her lungs! Please scroll through these photos to witness the pure love and joy these two have for the Lord and for one another!     Love Always,  Becky
