Cescaphe Philadelphia Wedding|Megan & Josh

Megan and Josh met through mutual friends in high school. They started to get to know each other more in college at Saint Joseph's University, where they would all hang out. Their story started when Megan needed a date for her formal and her friend suggested Josh. They had a fantastic time together and continued talking afterward!

Josh’s ability to make her laugh, even when she doesn't want to, really made her fall in love with him. She knows that she can talk to Josh about anything and everything. He’s the definition of unconditional love. She considers him to be her best friend, and he is always there to help her when she needs a shoulder to lean on. Megan knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with Josh fairly early into their relationship. Whenever he visited her during her time at college, she loved spending time with him!

Josh fell in love with Megan because of her caring nature. They always have a good time together, no matter what they’re doing. She's always been fun to be around since they first met. And since then, she’s only given him more reasons on why he wants to marry her!

The Proposal

Josh proposed at Washington Square Park in Philadelphia. As they were approaching the park, he started to bring up marriage and spending forever together. While they were walking by an old church in Old City, she looked at him and said just to get married now and run up the church steps.

But he turned around and got down on one knee, which she thought was part of the act. Josh took a deep breath and opened his hand, revealing a beautiful ring. “Oh my god, that’s a real ring!” she said and followed by a quick “Yes!” They had dinner at Tulua’s Garden and met up with friends and family at a nearby bar.

Josh and Megan were married in July 2020 at the Church of the Incarnation at E Venango St, North Philadelphia.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!

"The proof is in the beautiful photographs with Ralph Deal Photography! Just take a look at his stunning pictures and you’ll know booking Ralph is the right choice, but if you need further assurance, take my word for it. My wife Elizabeth and I were married on November 10th, 2018. Ralph was our photographer, but he was so much more than that. His exceptional knowledge of the wedding day process made him a better wedding planner and strategist than we could have ever hoped for. He ensured every beat and minute was planned to perfection. He guided us through the day to make sure every moment and every picture was perfectly captured. Most importantly, Ralph was a welcome calming presence on what can be a hectic day; always assuring us we were doing great and the pictures looked wonderful. Ralph was amazing and patient with our giant families and wedding party when we needed to gather large group pictures. He works well with other vendors, the venue staff, and the videographer. Our images and wedding album are stunning and unique and we will cherish them forever. We will be using Ralph for family photos and any other events we need photographed for years to come".
