From the Photographer:
Serious medical students Lauren & Mike barely had time to carve out of their tough residency schedules in Boston for a wedding of their dreams in Yosemite National Park. Although it rained a bit on this Memorial Day weekend, oh so gently, the bride’s ethereal blush chiffon gown glowed in the soft light.
Although they grew up within 20 minutes of each other in Northern California, Lauren and Mike first met in medical school when they were roommates in Newport Beach for Lauren’s first (and Mike’s third) year of medical school. They moved to separate houses after that first year, but when Mike decided to propose he took Lauren to the beach right by the place where they first met at sunset. Because Mike is three years ahead of Lauren in his medical training, he started residency in Boston while Lauren was still in medical school. Lauren decided to take a research position for the year and moved to Boston to be with him. Mike is now an Orthopedic Surgery resident at Harvard, and Lauren is a Plastic Surgery resident at the University of Massachusetts. They are planning on moving back to their beloved California when they finish training.
