To Old & New Memories

Real Wedding
Lauren and Nick's paid tribute to their engagement story with chic decor..


Wisconsin Bride Spring/Summer 2022

Fate was on the side of Lauren Faust and Nick Urumoglu when the two crossed paths at a bar in Madison in the summer of 2012. But they were no strangers; Nick had been in the Facebook friend-zone since 2009 after meeting through mutual friends. After a few months of dating, the couple finally became “Facebook official.” Five blissful years later, Nick popped the question, creating a new special memory at Lauren’s family’s cabin on Long Island in the Apostle Islands, otherwise known as Lauren’s “sacred paradise.” COVID postponed their original date, but their new date landed on the one-year anniversary they adopted their puppy, Moose, so “Moscow Moose” cocktails were served in his honor. The sea-glass palette paid homage to Lauren’s childhood tradition of collecting sea glass with her mom and grandma at the same cabin where Nick proposed, on Lake Superior. Vases and other décor in sea glass colors, collected by Lauren and her mom, adorned the tables along with greenery and white florals. Lauren’s godmother officiated and Nick’s family Facetimed from Turkey. One of the couple’s close friends, who was to be a bridesmaid, had passed away before the wedding, so the couple honored her with a special bouquet and black heart stickers for brain aneurysm awareness from the organization Black Heart Traveler, created in her memory.
