We had such a fun time filming Candice and Jonathan’s beautiful wedding day. They met while attending college at Marquette University. Jonathan enrolled in medical school and they were dating long distance for about three years. While traveling back and fourth, they wondered how things would go. Candice says that if you’re meant to be together, no distance will separate the two and you’ll find a way to make it work! Great advice and a great outcome for couples wondering if long distance relationships work!

All of the speeches at their reception were amazing but many eyes were watering after Candice’s father gave his speech. Check it out:

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!
