Darcie (right)—Runs her own outdoor summer
camp for kids in San Francisco and is working on opening her own
preschool. Lauren (left)—Deputy Sheriff.
We met:
In 2005
How we met: We had both recently moved to San Francisco. I [Lauren] was attending college at San Francisco State University and working at Starbucks part time. Darcie went into Starbucks for a coffee and to say hi to a friend that also worked there. We were introduced and the sparks flew.
Our most memorable date: The night we had our first kiss at
the Lexington Club in San Francisco. We were actually tasked with selling raffle tickets for a fundraiser at the bar, but got a little distracted. I remember walking out of there afterward holding Darcie’s hand thinking how it all felt so right.
Who proposed and how: We always liked taking photo booth pictures together, so Darcie picked a venue in San Francisco with a photo booth. She convinced me we were just having a gathering with friends and encouraged me to invite many of our friends to join.
Once at the venue, it felt like every friend we had ever made was there, but I was still oblivious as to why! I assumed it must have been a convenient weekend for everyone to meet up. She nonchalantly asked me if I wanted to take a photo booth pic with her and of course, I said yes.
While we were in the photo booth, Darcie had a friend switch out the freshly printed photo strip with one she had taken earlier. We exited the photo booth and I found all our friends were gathered around us with smiling faces. I picked up the photo strip and saw Darcie, holding a decorated heart with a different message in each frame. The message read, “Will you marry me?”
I was so surprised! Darcie then got down on one knee in front of all our friends and the rest is history.
We got married at: Golden Gate Park

When I was young, I was the female that gay guys wanted to try to become heterosexual with. A very famous actor who’s gay—and I will not name names— asked me to marry him. I was very flattered, but I said, “Why?” This was 1964...
And I lived for two years with a guy who was
trying to become heterosexual...
