Love in the City of Love – Kathy and Anthony

On January 31, 2018, Kathy and Anthony gathered in front of family and friends at Philadelphia’s historic Union Trust to recommit their love to each other in a touching and beautiful vow renewal ceremony. The couple first met while registering for classes in college, just over fifteen years ago. After a whirlwind courtship, they married, having dated for only one month – and they have been inseparable ever since. Three beautiful children and a whole lot of ups and downs later, Kathy and Anthony’s love is as strong as ever.

In 2011, Kathy received the news that no woman ever wants to hear. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer. With Anthony by her side, she endured a double mastectomy and months of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Through it all, Anthony steadied her with his positive attitude, encouragement and humor. In 2015, the couple learned that Kathy’s cancer had metastasized to her bones and in 2017 she underwent an invasive surgery to remove a large tumor from her brain.Kathy and Anthony’s vow renewal was a day they will both never forget. Union Trust’s towering windows showered the couple with brilliant sunshine as loved ones gathered around them to celebrate. The evening was filled with heartfelt toasts, delicious cuisine, and dancing.


We are so thankful to Kathy and Anthony and their family for sharing their story with us and to the amazing wish granters who helped make this special day possible.
