Ready for a social media love story? Well, today I have one for you. Nicole and Jason “met” in college when they began following each other on Instagram. It was no surprise that their paths crossed – as they scrolled each other’s feed, they realized they had some mutual friends as they were attending college in Michigan. Jason playing baseball for Central Michigan University and Nicole studying nursing at Ferris State.
Jason took the bold move and DM’d Nicole. After a few playful exchanges, these two decided to go on a date. Like many college student dates, it was nothing over the top but did involve Chipotle, some Seltzers, and going back to Jason’s college house where they listened to music in the kitchen. That’s where Nicole and Jason’s love story began.
After they both graduated they moved to Jason’s home state of Illinois – soon finding out they were expecting their first child. While at the pumpkin patch taking cute photos to announce their good news, Jason dropped down to one knee and asked Nicole to be his wife. These two had so much to celebrate. Their son Easton was born this May and has quickly become their proudest achievement. When Marc and I met up with these two for their consultation, we quickly clicked. Marc and Jason having one conversation about baseball while Nicole and I conversed about life as a mother.
It was only a few short weeks ago we met up again for their Chicago engagement session. With impending bad weather on the way, it was as though we had the whole city to ourselves. I have never seen the streets and the lakefront so quiet. As the skies darkened it became more obvious as to why the city was so quiet. We, fortunately, finished their session moments before the downpour! Congrats Nicole and Jason – we are so excited for your upcoming wedding and to be with you on the start of your journey.
