As if their soul-stirring, impeccably choreographed first dance to one of Lady Gaga’s latest love anthems didn’t have tears streaming down our faces enough as it was, the ambiance of pure joy, adoration, & downright fun surrounding Angela & Jeff’s entire wedding day kept our cheeks glistening with the best kind of tears¹. Happy tears, sentimental tears, tears of sheer amusement & hilarity…ALL the tears! And we reveled in every minute of it.
Though the details were gorgeous and the venue was undoubtedly picturesque, what stood out to us the most about the Geer-Whitside nuptials was the way Angela & Jeff interacted with each other throughout the entire day. Their tender affection for one another, mixed with a healthy dose of playful banter & shenanigans, just lit our world on fire!!! Add to that the bridesmaids’ beaming smiles, the light-hearted groomsmen goadings, the seamless musical stylings of our girl Jenny Z, & happiness radiating from Angela, Jeff, & their closest family & friends, & you guys… it really was just like the song says…
While Gaga dreams of these, we were able to witness BOTH unfold before our very eyes as if right out of a movie scene! They say that fairytales have happy endings but in this case, it had an unforgettably blissful beginning too.
Venue: Eagle’s Nest Country Club
HMU: Fleurt Beauty Co. & Limelooks Makeup Artistry

1 – Fun Fact: There really is such a thing as different types of tears on a molecular level (basal, psychic, & reflex)! Check out this article by Joseph Stromberg of Smithsonian.com investigating the topography of tears with the help of electron-microscope photography!!!
