Philadelphia, PA – It happened on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum yesterday. John Vasiliou (of Philadelphia, PA) surprised Renee Koumatos (of Morristown, NJ) and popped the question. Cosmos Philly was invited out to capture the moment between two Greek-Americans on a perfect Sunday.

As John and Renee strolled the plateau of the museum, they paused for a view of the city below. John turned Renee to look over the cityscape, while family members, (Nikki Vasiliou Poulopoulos, Manoli Poulopoulos, Chris Vasiliou and Demi Koumatos) came out from hiding from behind the columned entrance to the museum. Cosmos Philly cameramen ran up on both sides and captured the moment while a crowd looked on.

A trembling and surprised Koumatos caught in the moment watched as soon to be fiance John Vasiliou dropped to one knee and placed the ring on her finger. Hugs and applause followed as the group popped champagne and celebrated the moment. Stay tuned for the date.
