Love stories often begin in the most unexpected ways. Lauren and Cory’s story is a testament to love’s impeccable timing. While their paths intertwined when they were younger, it took a blend of destiny and Cory’s charm to bring them together. Now, as they pave their journey towards a 2024 Michigan wedding, their story is unfolding beautifully.
Juggling their demanding careers, Lauren in Chicago and Cory in New York, both in the final stretches of their medical residencies, would seem an insurmountable task for many. However, their shared experiences as doctors fortify their bond, turning challenges into strengths. Their enduring commitment to each other is evident and inspiring.
Choosing to have their engagement photo session in Chicago where they reconnected, was all the more special. With Cory flying in from New York for the weekend, the session kicked off at the scenic Chicago River Walk. A looming cloud of uncertainty hung over us — unpredictable thunderstorms threatened to halt our plans. Yet, in Lauren’s words, Cory has always been her good luck charm. And indeed, the day held true to that sentiment. The rains graciously skirted around us, allowing the couple’s radiant love to shine through without a single drop to dampen the mood.
Our journey culminated at Milton T. Olive Park, presenting an enchanting view of the Chicago skyline illuminated by the hues of sunset. As if on cue, a rainbow arched across the sky, perfectly encapsulating the magic of their love story. It was more than just a photo session; it was a celebration of love, laughter, and the promise of a beautiful future together.
