Katherine + Paul met during the holidays at the Chicago Institute of Art. (How romantic is that!?) They wandered around Lincoln Park looking at the lights, and before they knew it, their first date lasted 6 hours long. 

So, it's no surprise that in the summer of 2014 on a backpacking trip to Banff National Park, Paul proposed to Katherine. Katherine said, "On the third day of the trip, it was a bit drizzly and cloudy and we were crossing over a series of streams. After one of the crossings, Paul set up his tripod to take a picture of the two of us on the bridge over the river with beautiful pine trees in the background.  We both went onto the bridge to take the picture, and then Paul got on one knee and proposed!"

Katherine + Paul will be getting married this weekend in the same city they fell in love. Chicago. Scroll down to see their University of Chicago engagement session!
