sterling ballroom wedding - angela + kelly

a cinquo de married fiesta of love

There's a bit of a running joke between one of my assistants and me - every time I email her about an upcoming wedding, I describe the couple as "the sweetest ever!" Here's the thing - it's always the honest truth. However, please believe me when I gush about Angela & Kelly, because truth be told...

They're the absolute sweetest.

I've had the extreme pleasure of knowing Angela since we attended college together at Monmouth University, and she, too, went on to be a teacher (and a stellar one, at that). She met the incredible Kelly through friends and the rest was blissful history. And so began their fiesta forever!

Kicking off their engagement with a proposal involving Asbury murals and personalized Chucks, it's no suprise that Angela & Kelly's big day was a joyful and vibrant celebration of their love. From the mini maracas guests shook for the first kiss to the Mexican soda table cards and papel picado flags, Angela & Kelly's nuptials were chock-full of sweet details for one heck of a party. I also sobbed no less than thirty times throughout their beautiful moments, which included a gorgeous ceremony I'll never forget.

Angela & Kelly, the way you two look at each other is nothing short of beautiful. I hope the fiesta never ends!
