Our Story

We could not be more excited to celebrate our wedding with family and friends. Hopefully by this time you know something about us. We met online in April 2010 (way before it was cool or normal) and had our first date 5 hours after Tom moved to NYC. Tom asked Erica to stay in his apartment to dog sit 3 weeks later and the rest is history. We moved back and forth between NYC and Philly more than most people move in their lives total. After more than 2 years of COVID, all has aligned in the world for us to have a great party to celebrate.

Pre-Party

6:00 PM, July 1, 2022

Buffalo Billiards

118 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106

We have moved the welcome party indoors to a fun and favorite bar of ours just two blocks from the hotel due to a forecast of extremely hot weather! So if you're coming from out of town or want to get the party started early, come join us at Buffalo Billiards. They have pool, shuffleboard, mini-basketball and more, and we are putting together a selection of Philadelphia's best food - hoagies, cheesesteaks, pretzels and more. Buffalo Billiards is very casual, it's just a bar - so wear your shorts, jeans or a casual summer dress.

Ceremony and Cocktail Hour

5:30 PM, July 2, 2022

The Shambles at Headhouse Square

2nd St & Pine St, Philadelphia, PA 19147

Cocktail/dressy casual attire.



Commonly asked question: what is cocktail/dressy casual attire? For women, I think you understand... text Erica with questions. For men, Tom put it this way: he'll be wearing a suit because he is getting married, but if he was attending this event otherwise he'd wear khakis with a shirt and blazer, no tie. Most of all, we want you to be comfortable and have fun, so wear what makes your ready to party and dance!
