Today’s installment of AWESOME is Landon and Angela. If anyone had any doubts at all whatsoever about long distance relationships need to just look at Angela and Landon to believe. Angela and I met at my first bridal show and we never really got to chat until after I started contacting those who left their information with me. I noticed that she had an 805 area code phone number and I asked if she was from Ventura County in California (where I lived before moving to FL). Lo and behold – we shared common stomping ground! Angela and I started hanging out (Us Californians need to stick together) and became fast friends. I soon started hearing all about Landon! They met when her family lived in Canada because of her father’s work, she kept in touch with him and kept their relationship strong through her university studies and Landon’s work schedule. They wed this past April and until Landon’s immigration papers go through, they are back to visiting each other once a month. I know it’s hard for them, but I’m excited to see that love trumps all obstacles.
Courtney from CocoLuna Events was a dream to work with, and her handiwork and editing skills really helped elevate Angela and Landon’s design for their wedding – incorporating family heirloom pieces into her wedding (Angela had her grandmother’s handkerchief tied to her wedding blooms and wore the earrings her mother and grandmother wore on their wedding day (a gift from her grandfather to her grandmother, I have never see raw diamonds those old before!)), infusing DIY touches (Angela made all the cookie platters while her mother and grandmother made the cookies (so cute!), Landon’s shot gun cases for the boutonnieres, Angela’s preference for parasols instead of bouquets for her bridesmaids, riding in and leaving on a clydesdale-drawn carriage, and choosing Buckingham Farms as their backdrop for their celebration (the antler chandelier and jack daniels barrels sold them!). I had such a great time with their family and friends and can’t wait for you to see all of the amazing details and moments from their day!
Enjoy the eye candy!
I could not have pulled this all off without the amazing vendors I got to work with!
