Lauren Scimemi and Brad Roberts.
Congratulations to Lauren Scimemi and Brad Roberts, winners of The Oxford Leader Dream Wedding Contest.

"It's pretty exciting," Scimemi said. "It couldn't come at a better time because my dad had been laid off for almost a year and he just got his job back...it was a huge relief to them because they weren't in a position to help."

"I didn't know how much my wedding would actually cost until we started adding everything up," Roberts said.

Brad proposed to Lauren at Coach Isignia Restaurant in Detroit on their four-year anniversary. The happy couple will be married in September 2012.

In addition to becoming the envy of every single bride-to-be in Oxford and Lake Orion, they win some fabulous prizes from 21 different businesses in the Oxford/Lake Orion area including Devil's Ridge Golf Course, Auto Works, Oxford Lakes Dental, Johnston Photography, Sherman Publications, Harvest Time, Villa de Goochi, Oakwood Wedding Chapel, Ageless Day Spa, Ella's Fashion, Downtown Salon, 24th Street, Sue's Custom Sewing, Sweet and Savory Bakery, The Tan Company, Mark A. Young Jewelers, Glorious Reflections, Head to Toes Day Spa and Guido's Premium Pizza.

After graduating in 2007 Lauren from Oxford High School and Brad from Lake Orion High School they have continued their studies at Madonna University, where both are pursuing bachelor's degrees in Hospitality Management.
