Each week, we highlight couples from around the city who walk through life in tandem and willingly share their funny stories and most poignant memories, the tough lessons they’ve learned and blessings enjoyed, their disappointments and successes.
This week, we’ve decided to change things up to honor a dynamic duo of another kind: Lee Vish and Lauren DePaso, two of our colleagues who worked in tandem to pull off a bridal issue we’re really proud of in mere days – in boiling temperatures, no less.
Lee and Lauren managed what photographer Josh Meredith said was a “seamless” two-day photo shoot that took place all around the city.
Bridal Suite of Louisville owner Laurie Robertson accompanied her dresses on a few legs of the journey around town and enthused about Lee and Lauren.
“They were so much fun and professional,” she said. “It was an amazing day, and it’s just a real privilege to be asked to be in the paper and to feature our gowns.”
It’s also a real privilege to work with people who commit to turning out the best possible publication for you, our readers, and that’s exactly what Lee and Lauren did when they took on this rather massive project and ensured it came to fruition from beginning to end.
Editor’s Note: Lee Vish has been accepted into law school at the University of Louisville and is leaving his post as director of operations at The Voice-Tribune on Aug. 5. We’re excited for Lee and wish him well.
