It was Halloween, and Nora was setup on a blind date to a fraternity Halloween party by some friends. Little did she know that beneath a giant teddy bear costume stood her future husband, John.
Their blind date led to endless nights together as they navigated the KU campus, studied for exams and celebrated graduation. After college, they packed their bags and together moved to Chicago where John asked Nora to marry him five years later overlooking the city they love.
Nora and John are planning a wedding in Tulsa this November, but first they wanted to document their engagement in Chicago.

Denise was unsure about dating someone long distance, but Nick’s charm and patience won her over.
