High School Sweethearts Theresa Duncan and Eric Hammonds' Collegeville Wedding


Some people are lucky enough to find true love at an early age. That was the case for Theresa Duncan, originally of Philadelphia, and Eric Hammonds of Chester Springs. When Theresa’s family moved to the suburbs, the pair met at Downingtown High School East and began dating sophomore year. “We’ve been together for 16 years,” says Theresa.

In 2014, they bought a house together in Coatesville. Several months later, Eric popped the question. The day of his proposal, Theresa had been up early volunteering in the city and had come home to take a nap. Nudged awake by their cat, she was surprised to see a diamond ring on the collar and Eric on one knee. Exactly three years later, they tied the knot.

Splash of Color: “I wanted pink or magenta—my favorite color.”

Natural Accents: “I just wanted something pretty that accented our colors, specifically magenta.”

Legend has it: “I love John Legend and so does Eric. ‘Like I’m Gonna Lose You’ is a beautiful song.”
