Lauren Baglio & Todd Decker
Living in different countries couldn't stop Lauren Baglio and Todd Decker from finding love—they began their relationship while Todd was working thousands of miles away in Spain. To share their lives together, each day they would send the other video clips. Now both in Brooklyn, they can't wait to say "I do."
They Support: Robin Hood Relief Fund for Hurricane Sandy Seeing first-hand the destruction Hurricane Sandy caused to the places they grew up and where they currently reside, Lauren and Todd hope to help rebuild their community and give hope to their neighbors.

Briana Hainley & Jason Schnitzer
Briana says that Jason, "Fell out of the sky and walked into my classroom." When a mutual friend told Jason—whose charity was making a donation to the school where Briana is a kindergarten teacher—to ask Briana out, he didn't pause. But Briana played it safe, taking his number instead of giving him hers. Luckily, after a quick "background check" she decided to call. And the rest is history!
They Support: The American Cancer Society. After watching Jason's dad battle throat cancer, Briana and Jason hope to give back by helping fund the lifesaving research that gives others a chance at a long and happy life.

Kanema Morrison & Drew-Montez Clark
Both chiropractors, it wasn't unlikely that Kanema and Drew-Montez would meet at a chiropractic conference, but the fact that their first conversation lasted more than five hours and caused both of them to miss the second half of the presentations was something to write home about. In fact, after that first meeting Kanema told her mom that she had just met the man she was going to marry!
They Support: Wounded Warriors Project. Kanema and Drew-Montez both have family members that serve in the military, and the respect and appreciation that they have for their service has inspired them to offer several months of free care at their practice. They hope to give back even more by donating to the Wounded Warrior Project.
