Chanelle is a content producer for QVC, Inc. John is a behavioral specialist for the School District of Philadelphia. Five years ago, when John first saw Chanelle at the grocery store, he followed her down the aisles and carried groceries to her car before getting her number. Chanelle loves that John constantly makes her smile and he appreciates her warm and giving heart.

He knew he was in love when…

He first saw her.

She knew she was in love when…

He first said, “I love you.”

In 10 years we will…

Have two or three children, successful careers and a beautiful home filled with love and laughter.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

To do it sooner, because marriage has been great!

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

To start the name-change process early because changing your last name can be very daunting.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Play chess. We can sit for hours enjoying some competitive fun.

Our nicknames for each other are…

Off limits because they’re too silly to divulge.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

The Caribbean. We go there just about every year and love sitting beachside with a cocktail in hand.

Our song is…

“Best of Me” by Anthony Hamilton.

Our perfect date night is…

Getting dressed up, going to our favorite restaurant and then taking in all that our city has to offer. From art exhibits, plays, jazz performances and dancing; you name it, we love it! And for the nights where we just can’t make it out, we enjoy a Redbox movie, pizza and a good bottle of wine.
