Three dresses, two beautiful people, and one quaint location; Alex & Greg’s engagement photos in old city Philadelphia are so charming. We are as smitten with them as they are with each other! Through the brick paved streets and a super pretty park, the pair walked and talked and posed for Minh of Du Soleil Photography. Get a glimpse into their love story as told by her below!
Alex and Greg crossed paths on their study abroad in Rome, Italy when they were placed in the same apartment building. Alex shared, ” I saw him in the hallway when he was moving in and immediately thought he was handsome. That day, I told my roommates he would be mine!” 🙂 However, these two didn’t official meet until they were both invited to a mutual friend’s birthday party. Greg said, “Alex had to send a friend over to talk to me for her, because she was intimidated.”
Their first date was a beautiful September night at a romantic restaurant at Piazza Navona square. It has been over 8 years since then, most of which entailed a long-distance relationship for Alex and Greg, who commuted to see each other between NY and PA. Right before Christmas one year, Greg took Alex on a surprise horse drawn carriage and proposed to her. Greg said, “She doesn’t really like surprises but I figured she’d make an exception for that.”
Their wedding will be held on a boat on The Moshulu in Philly this coming June. They both have the travel bug, so this venue speaks directly to their passion and interest!
