In the fall of 2013, Carter’s family decided to move from the suburbs of Atlanta (where he was born and raised) to Southern California. Being stubborn, he refused to embrace this new journey and couldn’t wait to get back “Home.” Then… he met Lauren, and Carter began to think maybe SoCal could feel a little bit more like home. In May of 2014, these high school sweethearts became a couple, and the rest was history! From high school dances to four years of college at cross-town rivals, USC and UCLA, their love only became stronger. After nearly seven years of growing up together, Carter proposed to Lauren in Scottsdale, AZ in February of 2021.
