Lauren McCarter & Brian Allyn

October 26, 2019

During the George Washington University Health Administration program welcome dinner her first year in grad school, Lauren spotted Brian from across the room. When she went home that night, she couldn’t stop talking to her roommate about how cute Brian was. After becoming friends, they soon started dating, and were together for four years before Lauren finally made the move to Cleveland where Brian was working. On a trip to Brian’s hometown in Maine for Labor Day weekend, he surprised Lauren with a proposal and a celebration with both their families. The ceremony was at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Spartanburg. For now, the couple remains in Ohio, both in administration roles in the Cleveland Clinic. They hope eventually to move back to the Upstate.
