Their Story

Leah Goldberg, 30, of Marlton, and Zeppy Pizoli, 33, of Medford, share a story that began when they were just kids. Growing up with the same circle of friends, the pair enjoyed a bond built on shared laughter. After college, when a newly single Leah moved back home, a romance budded with Zeppy, but it was short lived. “The timing was simply not right for us,” says Leah, although they resolved to stay friends. Four years later, when they found themselves at the same bar one Thanksgiving eve, something clicked. After spending hours together there, they met for a pajama-clad pancake breakfast the next day, and the rest is history. The couple is now home in Cherry Hill, caring for their five dogs and planning their honeymoon.

With the couple’s shared interest in mind (she’s a brewery manager, he’s a mechanic and a craft brew lover), Zeppy worked with friends to create a one-of-a-kind proposal during a summer barbeque. Hop Hedz Gear of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, created custom labels for a case of beer made by Stickman Brews. Alongside the bespoke art was a simple message: “Will You Marry Me?” After seeing the cans, Leah found Zeppy waiting patiently beside her, down on one knee.

As animal lovers, Leah and Zeppy were enthusiastic about touring Glenmoore Farm in Hopewell Township, which is home to an active animal rescue. “It was Prudence, the paralyzed pig, that melted my heart,” says Leah. “After meeting her, I instantly turned to Anne, the farm owner, and yelled ‘take my money!’” The pair brought a hint of their personal style to the day via their centerpieces—beer growlers collected from their favorite breweries—and accentuated the venue’s rustic charm with yellow florals, antique tableware and natural wood. For their first dance, the couple chose “You’re Still the One” by The Maine.

When it came time for dress shopping, Leah dared herself to look beyond familiar styles and designs. At Lovely Bride in Philadelphia, a Rue de Seine gown with bohemian flair was the last dress she tried on—and the one that she took home. “If I had stuck to my guns and only tried on dresses that I thought I wanted, I would have never found my dream gown,” she says.  

The Menu

Throughout the evening, guests dined from an assortment of food trucks, sampling coal-fired pizza, artisanal burgers, corn fritters, and macaroni and cheese. And of course, there was no shortage of the couple’s all-time favorite thing: beer. A variety of local craft brews was flowing from The Wandering Brew, a mobile bar with vintage appeal. “We knew the alcohol portion of our wedding was going to be one of the most important details,” Leah says. Utilizing locally sourced materials and small businesses was also a must for Leah and Zeppy. An elaborate dessert bar, with to-go bags for guests, replaced traditional favors. Kettle corn, chocolate-covered pretzels, cupcakes and cookies—plus a donut wall—were a hit.

“It is your day,” Leah says. “Do what you want and do not let other people outside of you and your partner dictate how your day should go.”
