E! News’ Jason Kennedy & Lauren Scruggs’ Pre-Wedding Shoot…a Tragic Accident Brought them Together



Jason Kennedy & Lauren Scruggs' Pre-Wedding Shoot - August 2014 - 01 (8)
In May 2014, E! News co-host Jason Kennedy proposed to girlfriend Lauren Scruggs at her hometown in the presence of close friends and relatives.

In 2011, the former model turned fashion blogger/author made headlines when she walked into an airplane’s spinning propeller. She lost her left eye and severely injured her left hand after exiting the plane in the dark.

Lauren had surgery to remove the left eye. She currently uses a prosthetic eye and arm.

After the tragic accident, fellow E! personality Giuliana Rancic interviewed her, and introduced Lauren to Jason because she thought they will make a good pair.

Fast forward to 2014, they are engaged and planning a winter wedding.

One of the world’s leading wedding websites Style Me Pretty got the exclusive photos for their pre-wedding shoot.

      You think every man is gay. Gay men like you think all men are gay.

      What an ignorant thing to say. Anonymous commenters like you think you know everything when hiding behind a computer screen. Guess what? Generalizing people is one of the dumbest things you can do. Obviously this person thought he was gay and now realizes that he isn’t.

    See how simple and intimate it is… meanwhile Nigerians would be competing with Cirque du Soleil with all the dramatic pre-wedding shoots…. mtscheeeeew

  23. Uche

    August 7, 2014 at 9:43 am

    My dear Nigerian, take note: did u see how simple their attires are? No special gaj-up!

    • Missy

      August 7, 2014 at 11:25 am

      @Crayfish and Uche, so, now that you’ve seen a pair of white folks in simple attire, it has become a standard again, abi? Why can’t people just live and let live when it comes to things like these? Who set the standards for pre-wedding photo styles? I think it’s about individuality and personal preferences. Must we all do it the same way? I get so exasperated when I see Nigerians judging one another by what one white man does. They are not the standard to anything. Let people take their photos any how they like. No big deal. *Tired*

    • w18y

      August 7, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      Thank u Missy I don’t understand why some Nigerians act like whit people are the standard for everything. If a white man is simple then we are all meant to be simple if he is glamorous or sophisticated then we are all meant to follow suit. Anyway these are lovely pics from a beautiful couple I wish them the best.

    awwwwww…This is true love..I particularly am not surprise at Jason loving her. He seems to be different from other E news staff. Very natural and down to earth.

    August 7, 2014 at 10:57 am

    Abeg… all this ppl dt r nw criticising Nigerian pre-wedding photos shd jst sit dwn… the differences nd varieties in the world make life beautiful.. and the people that comment here can be so bipolar.. wen they release the mega decked out pics.. they’ll run and say “I tap into this” and suddenly when laid back pics cme out..we’ll stat hearing “simplicity is the best” … key thing is dt people want different things…none can be said to be truly better than another.. allow people be..


    August 7, 2014 at 10:59 am

    Very heart melting story. May they remain happy for the rest of their lives.

    I bet we can all take a cue from this………..compatibility is what matters most. Other factors should be secondary.

    Nice! Nice!! and truly Nice!!! i wish them all the best

  38. Christabel

    It’s amazing to see these stories, it actually revives one’s belief and hope in true love…A friend of mine told me her Ex wanted a “perfect girlfriend “,long legs, toned abs,clean skin,he even told her she MUST always hit the gym everyday!! When it became too much, she knew he had to go…. ..True love does exist,we just have to pray and believe God

    I really like this pre wedding pictures. It has been a long time i have been impressed with a pre wedding photo shoot. It is fresh, simple and classic. It looks like they enjoyed themselves and are relaxed. You can feel their love. I wish them a happy and long married life.
