Angela & Ren’s Wedding Story
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Harken back to Angela & Ren’s Prologue, and you’ll recall how awesome this Los Angeles couple is. Their wedding day began at their artsy home in Silver Lake, where they got ready and Angela slipped into her gorgeous dress by Hayley Paige. At their front door they had their First Look, which made for a beautifully personal moment.
Just a couple of miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles stands a hilltop park called Vista Hermosa. On this day, one of the lawns overlooking the city had been converted into a wedding ceremony site. Angela, who moved to LA from Wisconsin, and Ren, who found his way to LA from North Carolina, fell in love with the city as they fell in love with each other, so the city has become deeply rooted in their hearts. There couldn’t have been a more perfect backdrop for their vows than the downtown LA skyline.
The humble wedding, with its 19 guests, migrated to A.O.C. restaurant in Los Angeles, which was rated the #1 restaurant in LA just weeks after they’d booked the second floor party room (To say they have great taste is an massive understatement). Ren surprised Angela by singing her a couple of bluesy numbers, including Nat King Cole’s L-O-V-E. She wore a big smile as he belted out the notes.
The day concluded with a masquerade afterparty at Jones’ of Hollywood as Angela and Ren and their closest friends danced the night away.
Small weddings like this are such a delight because of their intimacy. “You’re all here for a very specific reason,” Ren said during dinner. “Each of you have impacted our lives deeply. You’re the people who matter most to us.”
