In 2018, destiny played its hand when Nico and Bri's lives intertwined at a bustling work conference. Little did they know that this seemingly ordinary encounter would mark the beginning of a remarkable love story.
From that initial spark, it became evident that they were more than just two souls meeting – they were kindred spirits with a shared love for life's adventures. Whether it was the thrill of the beach, the joy of hanging out with friends, or the warmth of family moments, every experience was made even better in each other's company. Nico's passion for football, especially his unwavering support for the Eagles, added an extra layer of excitement to their journey. And the culinary escapades, exploring new recipes and discovering hidden culinary gems, added a flavorful touch to their shared narrative.
What sets Nico and Bri apart is their unwavering dedication to their dreams and to each other. From the very beginning, their aspirations aligned perfectly, creating a harmonious partnership where they lift each other up and encourage the pursuit of their passions.
Their story took an enchanting turn on a sunlit day in a Philadelphia 18th-century garden. Nico's heartfelt proposal left Bri completely surprised, her heart brimming with joy and love.
As they step onto the path of marriage, they hold dear the places that hold significance in their journey. The proposal's location is a homage to Nico's parents' love story, captured in wedding pictures in the same romantic setting.
As their journey unfolds, Nico and Bri are eager to document each step, each moment, and each memory. Here's to a love story that began with chance and continues to evolve in the most enchanting ways.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!
"I highly recommend hiring Ralph Deal as your wedding photographer! Our pictures turned out beautifully and we got all of the shots that we wanted. Ralph was such a great communicator leading up to the wedding. We had several meetings to discuss what we wanted for our wedding, which was extremely helpful. Ralph wanted to know every detail about us and the wedding day and was very thorough.
I especially recommend Ralph because he made the day run so smoothly. Because my fiancée and I didn’t want to do a first look, we had a very tight amount of time to get our pictures taken in. Ralph was so good at directing us, our bridal party, and our families so he could quickly get the perfect shots. We spent the 2 hours between the mass ending and the reception starting getting all of the photos we wanted. Ralph was so efficient that we didn’t miss 1 minute of our cocktail hour! Ralph is not only a great photographer, but a nice and fun person to work with. I feel like we got to know Ralph and he got to know us. It was so nice working with someone who made us feel so comfortable. And like I said, our pictures are absolutely gorgeous.
I’m so glad we had Ralph as our photographer to capture our day!"
