We Got Married!

The Big Day 

A special thank you to our dear friend Jeff Chen for capturing these special memories 


Nothing fancy, just love

...and a tax break! :)


We made the decision to have a small intimate ceremony with our immediate family in Frazier Park, California. 

We plan to visit Madison, Denver, and Chicago to still celebrate with many of you throughout the year!

Our Story

"Did you just give me trash?"

-- Karolina Nowak

Kevin is not keen on grand gestures, but he couldn't have chosen a better way to propose. 

Denali- Elevation 20,310 ft

This was by far the hardest experience for us both. It took endurance, mental strength, and many blisters. I'm not sure if Kevin would have attempted it without me, but I surely couldn't have done it without him. 

At the summit, after taking in the surreal views, Kevin reached into my pocket. In my mental exhaustion, I assumed he was handing me garbage. No trace left behind, right? When I reached in, I was shocked to find a ring instead! 

In perfect Kevin fashion, he casually and discreetly proposed in an area where less than 1,000 people attempt the climb each year, and of those, approximately half reach the summit.


I guess he liked our odds :)
