First Impressions

During the show’s first season, Lauren wrote an episode that involved Samira’s character, and when they met to discuss it, their connection was instant. Lauren was married at the time, so the pair kept it professional. Still, they couldn’t deny the sparks. “I tried to be around her as much as I could,” Samira says. “And when I found out she was married, I assumed it was to a woman. I was very wrong on that.”

Lauren’s sexuality

“Samira became the person I felt safe talking to,” Lauren says. “I was so confused, and it was such a scary time that I think our romance came out of me leaning on her when it felt like my life was falling apart.”

Trying to get chose

Samira was sure she wanted to marry Lauren, but they both decided that Lauren would be the one to propose when she was ready. That’s not to say that Samira didn’t drop some serious hints. “I’d finish doing the dishes, and Lauren would come in to thank me, and I’d say, ‘I’m just trying to get chose,'” Samira says. “That was my way of saying, ‘Choose me! Choose me! I want you to marry me.'” So right before a weekend getaway to Palm Springs, Lauren dropped down on one knee and presented Samira with a diamond ring.

Fast Forward to The Wedding Day

Of course, Danielle was there and sang Sara Bareilles’s “I Choose You,” which Lauren had played during their proposal.

Outfit change

Both outfits for both brides were designed by Christian Siriano.
