Saimon and Lauren met in 2012 at the University of Florida. The dental school was having a "Dental-Nursing Social" at one of the local bars, and Lauren was convinced by friends to attend. Lauren lost her friends at the bar, and Saimon sat down next to her and they started talking. They were inseparable from that point on. Lauren and Saimon dated for several years before graduating from graduate school in May of 2015, and relocating to St Petersburg, FL.

On October 16, 2015, Lauren's father came to St Petersburg to have dinner with Lauren and Saimon after a business trip in the area. The plan was to go to a rooftop bar in Clearwater Beach to watch the sunset, but it was a bit too late by the time they arrived in Clearwater. Saimon was acting strange on the drive over. He was very quiet, and kept asking Lauren if she was tired. When they parked, Saimon suggested they go to the beach, so that Lauren's dad could see the beach. When they got to the beach, Saimon asked Lauren to come into the sandy area. Then he got down on one knee, and put a beautifully decorated white cloth on the sand that said, "Lauren, will you marry me?". Lauren was super surprised, and of course, said yes!

Friends and family flew in from around the world, to join these two in exchanging their vows in a beautiful ceremony at St. Paul's Catholic Church. Guests then made their way to downtown Tampa where they boarded the Yacht Starship, for a cruising reception on the water. It was great to meet this sweet couple, they were lovely to work with, congrats to the newlyweds!! :)
