Bachelor Ben Higgins and his fiancee Lauren Bushnell arrived in Denver, Colorado this week after spending Easter weekend with the Higgins and Bushnell families. Lauren plans to move from Marina Del Rey, California to Ben’s home next month, but for now, the couple is enjoying their time together — even when their first date in Denver didn’t go exactly as planned.
During their date on Thursday night, Ben went to get his car from the parking garage and got stuck in the elevator. Fans who follow Lauren on Snapchat got to see rescue personnel arrive at the scene to get Ben out.
After Ben got out of the elevator he told his Twitter followers it was “traumatizing,” but Lauren thought it was funny and she got Ben laughing in the car after all was said and done.

Fortunately, he was only a floor up and didn’t have to wait too long to get out and they have a good story to tell about their first Denver date!
With one memorable date in the books, the two love-birds have plans to watch a marathon of HGTV’s Fixer Upper — perhaps they will get some design ideas for Ben’s house that will now become their first home together.
I haven’t watched Fixer Upper in weeks. I’m really missing Chip and Joanna- time for a marathon. You with me @benhiggi ?

The couple recently told AOL that once Lauren makes a permanent move to Denver, they will both be returning to work. They also have two other important things on their to-do list: possibly getting a dog and planning their wedding that will take place in late 2016 or “very early” 2017.
It sure sounds like they are on track to become one of the few Bachelor/Bachelorette couples to make it to the altar. If they can laugh about a date night gone wrong, they are on the right track!
