It all started 21 years ago when they were just 14 years old. They were in and out of each others lives after that. Traveling all over the globe, and even suitcase living for a bit. Wishing, pushing and hoping from their family and friends – their love story just wasn’t over just yet. Until Chris gathered rings from Angela’s 2 Grandmothers, Chris’ Great-Grandmother, his Father, and her Mother, and had them customized by Poppyor in DC. The rings together add up to over 200 years of happiness, love and marriage!
Chris descrives the time he met Angela at 14 “the world went in slow motion” And when Angela’s sister asked her why it took her so long to realize Chris was her meant to be, Angela responded she didn’t think it was that easy. And the truth is that she met the love of her life at 14 years old!
The history doesn’t stop just yet! Angela’s dress was worn by her mother over 35 years ago! Angela had it re-designed to fit her body and style. It is by far one of my favorite dresses to date! Along with all that history, these two wanted to make sure their family was a big part of their day! There was no wedding party – but they had their family walk down the isle with them. A friend officiated the wedding, a family member from each side held and handed over their rings. And friends and family made all the desserts – that were delicious!
Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander was the perfect setting for their wedding! The ceremony was down by the water, and the reception was under a white tent next to a beautiful barn. They served Old Fashions, Wisconsin Beer, and her Fathers wine from his winery.
Check out a little slide show for more photos of their beautiful day!
Congratulate these two, and let them know how much you love their love story! If they get 15 blog comments I will gift them a complimentary 11×14 canvas of their choice!
Thank you so much for the honor of capturing your beautiful day Angela and Chris!
With Love – Christine
