After meeting on a movie set, Josh Swickard asked Lauren York for her number under the iconic Warner Brothers water tower in Hollywood. Just over a year later, he proposed to her in front of both their families during a game of charades by acting out the word “proposal.”

During the reception on July 6, 2019, authentic footage of Old Hollywood weddings played in the background, and drink swizzles were adorned with famous movie quotes about love, reminding guests of the iconic love stories of yesteryear.

On a dance floor beneath the trees, the bride and groom showed off their moves by performing a routine inspired by White Christmas, one of their favorite films. The happy couple currently resides in Los Angeles and are pursuing acting careers.
