I remember meeting Angela and her sweet mom at a bridal show years ago. Actually, I met them at like 5 bridal shows! Angela and her mom were bridal show junkies. I really love the entire process we go through with our couples. The initial meetings, talking through all their details and desires for their wedding, the filming, the editing, the tears, the joys! We get to be a part of it all! I still can’t believe that we get to be an intimate part of our couples wedding day. It really is an amazing job and responsibility we have.
John and Angelas wedding was super beautiful up at the Trump National Golf Course! They were such a high energy couple! If nothing else you got see John’s little fire fighter dance at 6:40 in the video. There is always a first for everything I guess! Here is a bit of Angela’s thoughts on Marriage!
Q + A WITH JOHN AND ANGELA
Q. WHAT’S THE FUNNIEST THING ABOUT BEING MARRIED?
That he does almost all of the cooking and cleaning!!!
Q. WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU TELL A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Something will most likely go wrong and there is nothing you can do about it. Enjoy everything else that is going right.
Q. WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART ABOUT PLANNING A WEDDING?
All the small details that have to be done at the last minute such as seating charts, programs and name cards…
Q. IN A FEW WORDS, SHARE WITH FUTURE NEWLYWEDS SOME MARRIAGE WISDOM?
Go to bed mad! Some people just need some time to cool off and sleep it off so you don’t get in a knock down, drag out fight.
Q. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE MEMORIES FROM YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Walking back down the aisle and seeing all of the smiling faces of our family and friends. Getting that first glance of the reception room and seeing all of the planning all come together. The garter toss where John came out in his turnout pants dancing like a stripper! Never getting off the dance floor.
Q. WHAT WAS THE STORY OF THE PROPOSAL?
It was Christmas time and we were working completely opposite schedules for work. We planned an “After Christmas” day to spend with each other and John planned massages and dinner at Trump National. As we took a walk around the golf course at sunset, John got down on knee and popped the question. Our whole families were watching from the restaurant and we all had a great celebration. Then we were off to a gondola ride under the stars.
Q. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING MARRIED?
Having your best friend there to share everything with. The good times, the hard times and everything in between. It’s facing the world hand in hand an knowing we can get through anything as long as we have each other.
