How They Met:
“We met through a mutual friend in NYC. John was still living in Philadelphia at the time, but after we met, we saw each other every single weekend until he eventually moved up to NYC so we could be together.”
“What I remember most was our first look. Leading up to it, I was a little nervous, waiting in anticipation, and all that faded away as soon as I saw John. We were together for the rest of the day & were able to enjoy everything together & I’ll remember that forever.”
About the Venue | The Kimmel Center:
“We fell in love with the open, modern space of Hamilton Garden. We wanted to have a space where we could do simple decor to complement the venue, and as soon as we saw Hamilton Garden, we knew that it was it. It was also perfect because we wanted to have our wedding in Philadelphia because that’s where all of John family lives.”
“We wanted a classic but modern wedding, something simple but beautiful. We chose white & gold as our colors. Something special that we did was our candle favors, which were provided from a small business called Fifth & Madison. They have a small kiosk at the Bryant Park Holiday Shops each year, and since we live right there, it’s been a tradition for us to go to that shop each year and pick out a few candles. We thought it would be a great personal touch to share with our guests.”
