Samar and Ari had met over tea at Philz, and as part of their Philz ritual met regularly at the Philz Coffee location in SOMA / Mission Bay.

“On December 24, 2013, we (Samar Mahbouba and Ari Warmerdam) were engaged outside of Philz (AT&T Park), and with each a fresh brewed cup of Tantalizing Turkish in hand. During what was a customary morning visit to Philz, Ari surprised Samar by asking her to be his wife, and while Samar was in her happiest state–with a large cup of Philz in hand (medium cream and medium sweet – Philz Way). Given this special moment in our lives and our affinity for Philz, we will forever keep a special spot in our heart for best cup of coffee there is…

On April 12th, we visited Philz for our engagement photos and to help remember the place that played an integral role in our lives. As always, the staff showed wonderful service and excitedly welcomed us with smiles as we ordered our favorite “go-to” cup of Tantalizing Turkish for the day. And as our photographer, Jesse Leake, captured our excitement over a cup of Philz, and our planned lives together…:)”

We congratulate the happy couple on their upcoming marriage and wish them the best of luck.
