Wood - Larose Wedding

Brocato Photojournalism

Lauren Elise Wood and Miles Barrett LaRose first met when they were both hanging out with friends. He asked her out, but she wasn’t interested. A few months later she was at dinner with friends and realized she was seated next to his table. Lauren took one look at Miles and realized she had made a mistake by turning him down. When he was finished with his meal, he approached her table with bottle of wine and asked if she would go out with him again.

In March 2013, Miles took Lauren fishing. He pulled up to a spot in the marsh where she caught her first fish on his boat three years before. He got down on one knee and stumbled, dropping the ring in the dirty marsh. They searched for the ring but it was nowhere in sight. He got back on the boat, emerged with the real engagement ring and asked her to be his wife.

After the wedding, Lauren and Miles only had a short time to visit Riviera Playa, Mexico. They are planning to go on their honeymoon in the fall to Europe. The two currently live in Old Metairie where Lauren is a Psychiatry resident at LSU and Miles owns Shallow South, a fly fishing guide company.
