Lauren Kinard and Zack McLarnon’s Blowout Ranch Wedding

Some people don’t like labels. Lauren Kinard, for instance, went out with Zack McLarnon only after he agreed to not call the date a date. But a rose by any other name smells as sweet, and a wine tasting at ZaZa turned into a yearlong relationship, a proposal at The Ritz, and a huge wedding at First Baptist Church of Abilene. More than 600 guests attended the April 27, 2013, celebration at Spanish Oaks Ranch, a property that’s been in Lauren’s family for decades.
