Angela is like a sister to me… literally. Our dads have been best friends since before we were born, and I’ve called her dad Uncle Wayne all my life (well, until my sister started dating Angela’s brother, because that would sound weird). Angela met Jason soon after I met Josh, ironically at the same bar in Plano, Texas. Tragically, Austin Avenue burned down a few months later in a freak Fourth of July accident, but the flames of our loves have remained burning bright.
Angela told me when her and Jason had gone ring shopping, and she’d fallen in love with a beautiful tanzanite ring with a halo of diamonds. It was elegant. It was unique. It was Angela.
I knew Jason was the one for Angela when I saw how he acted around Gavin, Angela’s precocious little boy. Jason was more than a father figure to Gavin, but a friend and role model as well.
Angela and Jason were married on June 7, 2012 in Comfort, Texas, a town in the country outside San Antonio. Their wedding was not without drama (the cupcake bakery wrote down the wrong wedding date, since Angela and Jason were married on a Thursday), but the bride and groom had a wonderful wedding on a beautiful June Texas day.
An intimate ceremony amongst only close friends and family, it was really special to me to capture such an important day in the lives of people I consider family. My sister was also a bridesmaid, and it was great to see her since she flew in from Arizona! One detail I can’t get over was the flowers. Angela’s flowers were gorgeous. The purple and pink beautifully complimented her light red hair, with a purple flower woven delicately into her curled up-do.
The reception was held on the same grounds as the ceremony, so guests merely walked across the courtyard to the party location. The DJ was great, and Gavin stole the show with his YouTube-inspired dancing throughout the bride and groom’s first dance. As Angela later told me, “This is what happens when you let your child watch YouTube videos!” The cupcakes arrived in time for the reception, and they were to die for! The open air atmosphere was great for guests who wanted to escape the heat on the dance floor and enjoy a beverage under the Texas stars.
Congratulations Jason and Angela!
