Mindy & Jim in Chicago, IL

When Mindy sported her "More Cowbell" shirt -- an ode to her friend's band and the famous Saturday Night Live skit -- at a bar, she never expected to get so much attention. But SNL fan Jim noticed the shirt immediately and struck up a conversation. The Bride Mindy Medley, 32, attorney The Groom Jim Kedvesh, 31, teacher The Date June 28 A year-and-a-half later, Jim planned an elaborate night out. The couple shared a romantic dinner and went to a Pete Yorn concert. When they arrived back at her apartment, Mindy found a bouquet of her favorite flowers, a bottle of champagne and a box. She opened the box to find a T-shirt from the bar where they met and when she turned to thank Jim, he was down on one knee.
