Lauren Hodgson and Miguel Ferriño

Lauren Hodgson (pictured, second from left) and Miguel Ferriño (second from right) exchanged wedding vows at the InterContinental Resort and Thalasso Spa in Bora Bora, French Polynesia. The original plan was to marry at Villa Antonia in Jonestown, Texas, with the honeymoon in Bora Bora. Covid-19 rearranged their plans. The morning of the wedding, which happened to be Lauren’s 25th birthday, the couple exchanged wedding cards with personalized vows in their private bungalow. Then, they traveled by canoe to the main area of the resort and were married on the beach, with a view of Bora Bora’s tallest volcanic peak in a traditional Polynesian ceremony. Lauren and Miguel met at Rice University, and texted each other almost daily before finally dating during Lauren’s junior year. She is now a third-year medical student, and Miguel is an engineer in the oil and gas industry.
