angie + chet’s story
It was love at first sight for Angie when she first encountered Chet at Katy Trail Icehouse in Dallas, Texas, while they were both out with a large group of mutual friends. The two were at opposite ends of the table. As luck would have it, Chet was in search of the chips and salsa that were fortuitously on Angie’s side of the table! He had no idea that when he found them, he’d also find his future wife!
the wedding day
“We had the most perfect group of family and friends at our wedding,” says Angie. “We spent our first Christmas together in Rosemary Beach. In 2020, families weren’t getting together to celebrate and when researching for a destination for the two of us, we stumbled upon Rosemary Beach. It quickly became a special place to us and the obvious destination for our wedding.”
“One of our favorite parts was the time we had with just the two of us taking photos around the town with Andrew prior to the ceremony,” shares Angie. “Those moments truly captured the place we fell in love with.”
the wedding ceremony
The couple chose The Pearl Hotel for their destination wedding. The couple said their vows in a sun-kissed ceremony on the Havana Beach Rooftop Deck of the hotel with a reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
The wedding festivities continued into the night with lots of dancing and champagne flowing freely. “We loved that all our friends and family, most who were strangers at the time, walked away as great friends and still communicate to this day,” says Angie.
