Kristine & John

July 9, 2011 at North Shore Golf Club in Menasha

Although Jon Schedler and Kristine Sliwicki both grew up in Neenah, it was a summer camp in Minnesota that brought them together. “That fall,” says Kristine, “Jon asked me to the homecoming dance, and the rest is history.” After high school, they spent four years apart at different colleges, but their love didn’t wane. While Kristine was studying in South Africa, Jon wrote her a letter each week (except one week, when he forgot). After Kristine returned home that summer, the couple headed to northern Wisconsin for a weekend of camping and canoeing, where Jon admitted that he had slacked a bit on his writing and gave her the last letter. What did it say? “Will you marry me?” of course!
