Real Wedding | Angela + Andrew

Angela and Andrew decided to make their May wedding a real family affair.  Their wedding included their children as well as a host of other young attendants.  You can feel the happiness radiating out of the entire event.  Angela called the entire thing a “real fairytale come true.”  It doesn’t get any more perfect than that.

Angela + Andrew | May 28, 2011 | Kenosha, Wisconsin

The ceremony
We got married at the same church as my parents did. We have three children so we both decided to make this a family event. We had 8 bridesmaid and groomsman, 2 jr bridesmaid and groomsman, 2 ushers, mini bride and groom, 3 flower girls, ring bearer. It was a little crazy at time but by the end of the day it was all worth it.

The reception
We didn’t have a theme or  specific colors, we wanted DIFFERENT!   The room was soft, all white with hints of colors. Andrew’s aunt took my vision of bright colored gerber daisies draping the tables and made each piece with love. Our center pieces were deep eggplant colored plates with a vase filled with natural rocks and three 16in bamboo. Our cake table had five framed 8×10 pictures of very close loved ones that couldn’t be with us that day.

The three words that best describes how she felt in the wedding dress
Perfect. Royal. Unforgettable.

What made Angela decide to sell her wedding dress?
I was very close to my grandmother who passed away.  I bought this dress on her birthday as a small way of including her in my wedding. When the consultant put this dress on I started freaking out and instantly understood what everyone told me: “you know when its the one.”

I’d rather see my dress go to someone that will love it as much as I do instead of sitting in a closet for the next 20 years.
