The Proposal: Lauren and Ryan met while they were students and neighbors at The University of Alabama. After dating for two years, Ryan suggested a hiking trip to Oak Mountain – a favorite picnic spot for the couple where they had carved their names into a tree on a mountain trail. Little did Lauren know that Ryan had spent several cold and damp winter days beforehand, carefully adding his marriage proposal to the tree carving. When they both reached the spot, Ryan dropped to one knee and offered Lauren an engagement ring.
