A divine connection + five-star event
In 2013 James and Brandi met at their home church—Philadelphia’s Sharon Baptist Church. Although Brandi politely turned James down after his first attempt (what if it didn’t work out and they had to see each other every Sunday?), she agreed to hand over her phone number six months later. And the rest, as they say, is history. They both love their hometown, praising its “food, history and diversity.” They couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else, and they rave that their wedding proved to be a five-star event from start to finish. The couple planned their event in just six months and immediately knew they loved Hotel Monaco’s modern, chic, Art Deco decor and the venue’s prime location in Old City Philadelphia.
