Believe it or not, Angie met her husband Josh in the seventh grade. He was her middle school crush and she passed him a note that read: "Do you want to be my boyfriend? Check yes, no or maybe." Can you guess which box he checked? They’ve been together ever since and now they’re newlyweds!
"I knew he was the one when my family started to refer to him as 'nephew' before he was officially a part of the family," says Angie. "He was included in everything from the church activities to the yearly getaways that my grandfather and uncles took to go watch baseball games and enjoy the rib-fests. It was an amazing feeling to know that my family loved him just as much as I did. I knew that I couldn’t go through life without him by my side."
"I wore Maggie Sottero’s Divina gown for my wedding day," says the bride. "When I started searching for gowns I knew what style I wanted and I knew it had to be a Maggie Sottero. I also knew that there had to be layers too."
"I accepted his proposal because I knew that Josh was everything to me," says Angie. "There was nothing more exciting than knowing I would be able to wake up to my best friend everyday, for the rest of my life just by becoming his wife."
"I did not have anything old or blue," Angie admits. "However, my 'something new' was, of course, my wedding dress. I had two borrowed items: My previous manager and I had become really close so I borrowed a broach that I loved of hers and placed it in my bouquet. Plus, my hairpiece was also borrowed from my cousin who had married a year before Josh and I."
Angie's niece and cousin were thrilled to join the bridal party as the flower girls.
Angie's eight lovely bridesmaids wore Lazaro gowns. "I knew I needed a dress that would work with different shapes and sizes so A-line styles were at the top of my list," confesses Angie "I also wanted something long and elegant for two reasons: I wanted to make sure that guest knew who was a part of the bridal party and I just love long bridesmaids’ dresses at weddings."
"Josh was heaven sent," Angie shares. "He shows me on a regular basis that he loves me, flaws and all. I know that there will never be a day that goes by that he won’t make me laugh or make sure that I’m the happiest woman alive."
"I knew she was everything that I wanted in a wife and she continuously surprised me on a daily basis," says Josh. "She was my biggest supporter and I knew I could count on her for any and everything. She’s also an amazing cook too. (Smiles!)"
"Josh is caring, protective, compassionate comedian who is hard working and very goal oriented," says Angie. "I love the fact that he loves me for me and he has never tried to change me. He knows my like and dislikes, what motivates me and what makes me happy."
"My Uncle Michael (affectionately known as Mickey) walked me down the aisle," Angie explains. "My dad passed away when I was 15 and my uncle made a promise to him that he would treat my siblings and I like his own as long as he was here on Earth. My Uncle has never broken that promise and I am forever grateful for him."
"Our wedding officiant was the pastor of my church and also my Godfather," Angie explains. "It was a unanimous decision to have him for the wedding seeing as though he had watched me grow into a woman. He knew the history (and approved) of Josh and I's relationship."
"The cake was amazing," says Angie. "My wedding cake was a four-tier cake with each layer trimmed in rhinestone and topped with green hydrangeas and purple calla lilies. We had three flavors so that our guest could have options. So, since one of my aunts gifted the cake, we allowed her to choose her favorite flavor, which was marble swirl. Josh fell in love with the apple cinnamon flavor, and I decided to just go with lemon. Our cake was created by Frani Peatross from A Taste of Love."
