We're both from West Philadelphia. Angelo is a General Manager, and I am a dietary aide currently enrolled in school to become a phlebotomist. We met in art class in middle school! That was back in 2009. We quickly became friends, but lost contact after we graduated. We reconnected in 2014 and decided that we wanted to be together. After three years of dating, Angelo knew I was the woman for him, so he popped the question!
We chose our location — Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA — because we wanted natural lighting, fresh flowers, and a pretty background. We choose our photographer because her work was amazing! She was referred to us by a family member.
