Loews Hotel Philadelphia Wedding | Rachel and John


Rachel and John first met at a friend's house during their sophomore year at King's College. They were both 19 years old then, but there was an instant connection between them. They started dating and have been together ever since.

For Rachel, John’s kindness and personality made her fall in love with him. And for him, her kindness, generosity, and affection won his heart. They spent many long days and nights together in college, and it was during this time they both realized they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.

Fast forward to 2020. During the COVID pandemic, they were living in Yonkers, New York when John proposed. They were getting ready for dinner, and he got nervous and proposed in their apartment before they left. It was a simple, intimate moment that they will never forget.

Now, they are eagerly anticipating their wedding day and there is one moment in particular that they are both looking forward to. It is the moment when they will walk down the aisle at the church and see each other for the first time. They cannot wait to celebrate this special day with their family and friends.

Their love story is one of kindness, affection, and simplicity for them. It is a story of two young people who fell in love and decided to spend the rest of their lives together. And on their wedding day, they will celebrate this love and commitment with those closest to them, surrounded by love and happiness!
