Lorenzo and Sarah tramped through the snow and slush together on a cold, dark night illuminated by the lights on Addison Street in Philadelphia, PA. Sarah didn’t know it yet, but when Lorenzo stopped their walk in the middle of the street, something was about to happen that would change both their lives forever.
Addison Street Lights
The alley of Addison Street in downtown Philadelphia is known for being lined with charming brick row houses, with white string lights strung around the trees that also line the street. The trees that line the sidewalks on Addison Street are strung in the white twinkle lights all year long. These lights, combined with the orange of the streetlights above the trees, give the effect of an arch overhead illuminating the street with a warm glow. This little side street has been named by multiple different sources as one of the prettiest streets in not only Philadelphia, but the Northeast United States.
The lights wrapped around the trees on this 1700 block of Philadelphia must be special-ordered from a company in Kansas City. The bulbs of these lights are brighter than the typical twinkle lights. They are also more energy efficient LED lights. The 1700 block pooled money for the lights and the lift required to put them up. Around 15,000 of these LED bulbs light the street.
Sarah and Lorenzo
Lorenzo held Sarah’s hands as they stood in the snow together. Then, he got on one knee and proposed!
Sarah was so overjoyed! She couldn’t help but kiss Lorenzo as he knelt in the snow with her engagement ring.
J & J Studios loves the adorable touch Sarah added here by making her foot “pop” as she kissed her fiance! It definitely added another cinematic element to a proposal already perfect enough for a movie.
A clear umbrella was another cute touch as it began to snow. The transparency of the umbrella allowed the lights and the snowflakes to be visible through it.
J & J Studios loved capturing the wonder on Lorenzo and Sarah’s faces as they walked through the snow and under the lights.
Lorenzo was overjoyed, too! He lifted Sarah into the air and kissed his future wife.
Just look at Sarah’s beautiful engagement ring! But also, be sure to notice her beaming, happy face, and Lorenzo’s loving gaze at her.
Sarah and Lorenzo only have eyes for each other in this photo. Their love was visible in their locked eyes as the lights shone around them. It looks to us like they are literally surrounded by love.
Because Addison Street is strung with these lovely lights throughout the year, you too can have a dazzling proposal on this charming Philadelphia side street.
