An unexpected meeting + happily ever after
These two met by chance in a Rittenhouse Square nightclub. They explain, “It was the classic story of boy meets girl, and the rest is history.” Since their dating years were spent eating their way across this city, attending concerts and baseball games, and walking from Old City to Center City, to Rittenhouse and back, they knew they wanted to get married here. Not only did many important relationship milestones happen in Philly, but they also felt the city’s history would prove the perfect backdrop for their wedding. The duo fell in love with Hotel Monaco, thanks to its breathtaking lobby, its “right combination of upscale and whimsy” and the delicious food served by Red Owl. Learning that the hotel would welcome their dogs—their self-proclaimed “children”—at no extra cost, truly sealed the deal.
