~Angela and Kyle’s Stan Hywet Wedding Ceremony~
Angela met Kyle on a blind date after much prompting and cajoling by their friends; they knew the couple would be perfect for one another. Despite Angela’s very high standards and reservations, she was impressed by Kyle’s good looks and charm. He was a perfect gentleman and they soon learned that they also shared the same values, dreams, and goals. After that first date they knew that they never wanted to be away from the other and after less than two years together, Kyle began to plan a secret proposal while on vacation in the Bahamas. After smuggling the ring through TSA searches, Kyle managed to surprise Angela while on the beach with their toes in the sand.
When Angela and Kyle began planning their wedding, they initially were not interested in an outdoor wedding. But after spending a day at Stan Hywet they couldn’t imagine having their wedding anywhere else. Once the venue was chosen, Angela settled on an elegant and romantic lace gown that looked exquisite with the historic and stately mansion and surrounding grounds. With her bridesmaids and Kyle’s daughter Giada by her side, Angela got ready in the carriage house before a sweet and intimate first look inside the English garden followed by a garden ceremony by the Tea Houses.
It was the ideal August day for an outdoor wedding and Angela was radiant as she walked arm in arm with her grandfather through the romantic and entrancing birch tree Allee to join Kyle by his side. Her bridesmaids wore flowering halter gowns in a soft shade of pink. Angela carried a bouquet of all-white roses, orchids and garden flowers that complemented Kyle’s boutonniere and each bridesmaid had a similar bouquet with pink ranunculus for pops of color. With a soft breeze gently blowing and while overlooking the lagoon below, Angela and Kyle took their vows to become husband and wife.
For their reception, Kyle and Angela selected the beautiful and opulent Tangier. The draped ballroom was simple yet elegant with candle-lit lanterns and gold charger plates. After dinner and speeches, the cute couple slipped away to the lavish and ornate Cabaret room for a few drinks and end of night photos while guests enjoyed some dancing and fun in the photo booth.
Thank you Angela and Kyle for sharing your beautiful day with us! Congratulations!
