Love was in the air during the Summer of 2017, Phil and Laura just didn’t know it yet. From craft beer at a local brewery to sunset walks in Clearwater, FL, these two make love look effortless.
How They Met
Phil and Laura graduated Solanco High School together in 2011 but, it wasn’t until the summer of 2017 at an Independence Day Party that Phil pursued Laura. They had their first date July 16th, 2017. Laura quickly became enamored by Phil as the first person to ever care for her in the special way that he does.
Their Engagement
It wasn’t hard for Phil to find the perfect ring for Laura. Phil already knew Brent L. Miller’s reputation for high quality jewelry and customer service per the advice of a few friends and from his frequent purchases there to buy necklaces and earrings for Laura’s birthdays. One of those friends was Laura’s best friend, Janine, who works there. All of Laura’s wishes poured into conversations with Janine and love for an Oval Halo style ring were carefully considered in the search. Janine and Phil were excited to work hand in hand to find Laura’s dream ring.
Imagine a sunset walk on the beach in Clearwater, Florida, a heart lined with rose petals in the sand, and a pier full of people waiting for that special moment when a stranger gets on his knee and his bride to be says, “YES!” with a photographer in the background to capture it all. This is the moment that Phil had perfectly planned for Laura who had no idea it was happening. The whole pier erupted with cheers as Laura cried tears of happiness, Phil’s face beamed with joy, and their love story started a new chapter.
Their Perfect Date Night
Phil and Laura grew up in Lancaster County so they are familiar with all of the amazing options that Lancaster has to offer. They love to grab a flight at any of the local breweries but, for a supreme night out, you can find them at The Horse Inn for one of their signature cocktails and Horse Fries, The Belvedere for a Grilled Caesar and elegant atmosphere, or The Press Room for their popular outside dining and burger.
Phil and Laura are so excited for their wedding on July 16, 2020 – 3 years to the day from their first date. Their intimate ceremony at the Conestoga House and Gardens in Lancaster will be cherished amongst their closest family and friends for years to come.
