See the Surprising Decor Details Inside Lauren Wirkus' Proposal

Spoiler: The Summer House bride-to-be's day started in a closet.

Lauren Wirkus Engagement

You may have heard that Summer House alum Lauren Wirkus got engaged and even seen her stunning oval-cut engagement ring, but did you know that her engagement day started inside a shoe closet?

"So my day started out yesterday organizing my sister's closet in her new home," Lauren captioned the first in a series of engagement day images posted to her Instagram Stories.

That's right — Lauren was at the San Diego home of her twin sister, Ashley Wirkus McAtee, and she was helping Ashley organize her new closet — or, at least, that's what Ashley tricked her into doing while preparations for a life-changing surprise were underway downstairs in the dining room area.

When Lauren eventually came downstairs, her boyfriend, David Raih, was waiting with a rather big question to ask her. From the looks of the pictures, she was totally surprised to see David there with giant gold balloons and flowers.

David got on one knee in between the kitchen island and the sleek dining table, which has several elegant, high-backed white chairs surrounding it. We suspect that this inviting area of Ashley's house is going to be the holiday headquarters for the whole extended family for many years to come, and it's now already the site of some great memories.

While Lauren started her day in her sister's closet, she and David finished the night in a luxury hotel. Congratulations, lovebirds!
