30 Sep Paula + William // Holy Name Cathedral + The Drake Hotel

Paula and William met eight years ago while attending Stanford University. Both of them grew up in New England, went to college in California and now call Chicago their home. Paula is a MD/PhD student and William is a pediatrics resident.

For the proposal, William decorated their Chicago apartment with orange balloons. It was around Christmas and Paula’s birthday. When she returned to their apartment, Paula says she noticed their normal Christmas music wasn’t playing. Stevie Wonder’s “You are the Sunshine of my Life” replaced all of the seasonal tunes but she didn’t think much of it. Then, William asked Paula to come to the window where he had strung Christmas lights that said: “Marry me?” At first, Paula said she thought it was a train but after she figured it out, William got down on one knee and asked Paula to spend the rest of her life with him!
