Love knows no bounds, and Zack and Phil’s incredible journey is a testament to just that. Their love story began in the bustling streets of the Big Apple, New York City! The two celebrated their love in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with an amazing support group including family members and lifelong friends. Their breathtaking Rittenhouse wedding was a dream come true! They planned every detail meticulously and carefully with the help of planning guru, The Styled Bride.

Four years ago, Zack, a talented professional working in Manhatten, and Phil, a reality TV producer, crossed paths. Three times to be exact. They matched on three different dating apps and decided to let fate be fate and eventually met for a romantic first date. Their connection was undeniable, being two Jewish boys from the suburbs of Pennsylvania. Zack’s warm, confident, and relaxed demeanor immediately drew Phil in, sparking hours of captivating conversation. It wasn’t long before they both felt comfortable and familiar in each other’s existence.

The Smile That Stole Hearts

Phil couldn’t help but gush about Zack’s infectious smile. He says “{Zack} has a very unique smile, his eyes kind of disappear and it’s just so dang cute!” Their love is a gratifying blend of shared laughter and cherished moments. Zack and Phil thrive on exploring new horizons and making the most of every moment. During one of their week-long explorations of Porto and Lisbon, Phil planned the perfect proposal in Portugal. The day unfolds with a romantic lunch at a restaurant boasting a breathtaking ocean view. Then, they headed to a special spot on Guincho Beach, where Phil had arranged for a Lisbon photographer to capture the moment.

An Exciting Rittenhouse Wedding Day Ahead

The day after Gabby and I arrived in Philly, we snuck in on their rehearsal to get an idea of what the space looked like and the formalities that were in the works. I could feel the excitement in the air as Zack and Phil walked through the ceremony, practicing for their wedding day. The next morning was the wedding day. The weather was cool and we were only staying a few blocks away from Rittenhouse Square so we decided to walk to the hotel and enjoy the streets of Philly! I feel incredibly fortunate to have been a part of their journey and to have the opportunity to capture the heartfelt moments that will forever define their love story.

The following day, we met up with Gabby’s clients Brittany and Bobby who just so happened to be visiting Philadelphia for a wedding! We had a nice chat over some breakfast at a local coffee shop before making our way back to the Florida heat.

To Susan, I am so happy you connected us to another beautiful couple. We can’t thank you enough for all your help throughout the day and look forward to many more weddings with you!
