A sample of their stories is below. Everyone will enjoy a beautiful and romantic luncheon and will bring photos of themselves at their wedding and over the years.

Jack & Marietta:

Jack and Marietta went to the same high school and church although they never spoke in high school. It wasn’t until later at a Halloween Party at their church that he asked her to dance. After they danced, she asked him to her college senior prom in 1946. They were married 3 years later in November 1949. The most romantic gestures they’ve done for each other was for their 40th anniversary, Marietta had a ring made with his mother’s diamond, set between 2 ruby gems as 40 is the year of the ruby. For Marietta, Jack remembered that she was never able to attend her high school prom where all of the girls received orchids as corsages. For their 65th wedding anniversary, Jack gave her an orchid.

Claire & Tony:

Claire and Tony met at Spring Hills Cherry Hill. They’re relationship became gradually. They were friends first and it naturally grew into love. At the Couple’s Luncheon in October of 2017, they made it official and committed to each other as a couple. Claire was very impressed with Tony’s intelligence surprising warmth and affection are a lovely bonus. Tony was impressed with Claire’s extreme organizational habits, her intelligence and her ability to be open-minded. They are now completely devoted to each other and are learning how to love deeply from each other. Now their families come together on special holidays and can’t wait to see what the future brings.
