As a San Diego–based lifestyle blogger, author, and podcaster, 30-year-old Lauryn Evarts lives a very public life. So she was thrilled that her husband Michael Bosstick’s proposal was a private one. He surprised her at home by setting up all her favorite things—from pinot grigio and flowers to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. “We popped Champagne and celebrated until 2 a.m. It was perfect!” Lauryn says. “I was dressed in sweats the whole time.” (Not a typical look for the glamorous gal behind The Skinny Confidential!) The couple, who met in sixth grade and reconnected romantically in college, chose Cabo San Lucas for their intimate nuptials, where 55 of their closest friends and family ate tacos, drank tequila, and ended the wedding night by jumping in the resort’s pool.
“There’s something in the air there that’s incredibly calming,” Lauryn says. “We figured, why not get married in our favorite place with our favorite people?”
“I love contrast, so we went extremely nontraditional with a dramatic, dark, vampy vibe—black calla lilies, lots of candles, and deep purple,” Lauryn says.
