Lauren + Blake
Little Rock // 7.2.22
Sweethearts Lauren Alford and Blake Spilker met at Lakeside High School in Hot Springs and dated for seven years before Blake asked for Lauren’s hand in a surprise engagement. The story unfolds like this: Lauren’s friends invited her to have drinks at Agasi 7, a rooftop bar in downtown Little Rock. When they arrived, the venue was dark and vacant—until Lauren saw Blake outside waiting, along with a photographer to capture her look of surprise. “I looked at my friends and they just pushed me outside. I was in shock!” she recalls. The unforgettable evening set the stage for a summer wedding, and plans soon began to take shape.
