Catherine Moore and Jon O’Camb met for the first time on a blustery winter evening in 1999. They were both in elementary school at the time. Catherine remembers Jon and his sister Jamie coming to the door as the Moore family pulled up in the O’Cambs’ driveway. Their parents had known each other long before this particular evening; prior to Catherine and Jon being born.
The Moores and O’Cambs became close family friends. They spent weekends, holidays, and summer trips together. Catherine and Jon became extremely close friends in childhood, which blossomed into a young romance.
Catherine and Jon became “girlfriend and boyfriend” for the first time on April Fool’s Day in 2002. They enjoyed dinner and movie dates, school dances, family vacations, and much more together. Catherine and Jon fell in love.
After high school, Catherine and Jon went their separate ways for college. They ended their romantic relationship, but remained friends. The college years passed, and they found their way back to one another near the end of college in the summer of 2010.
Catherine and Jon quickly picked up where they left off, falling back in love, and enjoying each other to the fullest again. They knew they wanted to be together and planned an adventure to start a new life in Chicago, IL. They moved to Elmhurst, IL in the summer of 2011 to start their careers and to continue their educations together.
Catherine and Jon have been in the Chicagoland area since then, exploring the city, restaurants, food, music, concerts, shows, Chicago sports teams, and neighboring cities in the Midwest. They have made many mutual friends who are enjoying their wedding day with them as well.
The couple had a romantic and elaborate engagement on August 10th, 2012. Jon said to Catherine that afternoon,
“We have done some awesome and incredible things since we have been together. We have moved to a new city, explored other cities and towns, eaten remarkable food, enjoyed amazing drinks, met new people, and have started a new life! Let’s do something crazy tonight. Let’s do something that we will always remember… Will you marry me?”
The complete story of the engagement evening is a bit too intricate to tell here, just know that it involved a helicopter!
Catherine and Jon have been busy with progressing in their careers, looking for their first home, and planning their wedding. They cannot wait to start the next chapter in their lives together and look forward to whatever comes their way.
