Nancy and Gabriel's Wedding
July 28, 2012
How we met...
It was a chilly February (the 12th) night in 2010. Nancy and some friends were at The Drake Tavern listening to Bruce Springsteen. Gabriel didn’t feel like going out that night, but his buddy convinced him to go out for a little. Since Gabriel also loves Bruce, he came over to talk to Nancy and her friends. Gabriel and Nancy got talking and before she left, she gave him her phone number. The next day, he called and they talked for over an hour before she finally asked if he wanted to meet for a drink. They went to Cheesecake Factory to find it really crowded and ended up having a nice conversation at T.G.I.Friday’s. Gabriel asked Nancy to take her on a real date on February 15th to Raw downtown. She accepted.
Maid of Honor:
Name: Nancy A. Major
Hometown: Pottstown, PA
Nancy has been a reading specialist at William Tennent High School for 7 years. She earned her degrees from Saint Joseph’s University in 2004 and 2005. She loves to read, cook and shop. Nancy loves spending her time at Zumba Fitness classes.
Name: Gabriel M. Linville
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Gabriel has been working for Penn Treaty Demolition and Metals in Philadelphia for over a year. He earned his degree from Mesa State College in 2000. He loves to fish, ski and hike. Gabriel loves spending his time with Jethro, his dog.
It was Gabriel and Nancy’s two year anniversary. Gabriel told Nancy he wanted to take her out to dinner. He re-created their first “official” date from two years prior. They went to El Vez for a drink, Raw for dinner, then for a walk downtown. They visited Ben Franklin’s grave, made wishes by throwing pennies on it, and then walked to the Liberty Bell. The Liberty Bell is where Nancy and Gabriel first kissed so it was very sweet and romantic for him to choose this location to propose. He told her that he loved her more every day and she immediately began to cry as he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. When she said, “of course” he asked again since he wanted to be sure she answered “yes.”
