Summer Engagement Session from Nikole Marie Photography

,

Jordan and Tommy met while in college at the University of Wisconsin, and 9 years later, he proposed under the Honeycomb during their holiday tradition: a visit to Zoo Lights! They joined Nikole Marie Photography at the site where Tommy popped the question, then visited some of the most picturesque places in Lincoln Park and River North for their engagement session!

He Proposed at Zoo Lights

Just before the holidays, Tommy took me to the Lincoln Park Zoo lights – which is always our tradition during that time of year! Before going inside, we waited for friends to join outside the Honeycomb near the South Pond. Little did I know, a few of our friends were hiding with cameras waiting for Tommy to pop the question along the boardwalk. Of course I said yes! But the most magical part of the night was the party that followed. Tommy gathered our closest friends and family at Gaslight Bar, one of our favorite restaurants, after the proposal for a huge surprise!

All About the Ring

My ring is a dream! Its a round diamond with a rounded square halo and a thin diamond band. We tried on rings together before hand, but Tommy custom made it with elements I loved from different rings with the help from Fey & Co. Jewelers in Lincoln Park!
