Lauren Manning and Timothy O’Malley’s Floridian Wedding

Palm Beach, FL

This Riverside, CT, couple met  on a blind date in the winter of 2009 and their courtship culminated in a March 17, 2012, wedding (St. Patrick’s Day seemed fitting since the bride and groom are Irish!) at The Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, FL. Lauren, a realtor originally from Wilton, CT, is also co-chair of the annual Under the Stars event benefiting the Pediatric Services and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Greenwich Hospital. Tim, who is from Greenwich, CT, is the president of Argus Development LLC, in Old Greenwich, CT, which specializes in custom home construction.
