Angela and Glenn met in a Young Single Adult ward that they had both recently started attending. Angela had just moved and Glenn had returned from his LDS mission, so they were seated together as the new arrivals.
Their first date is up for debate, Angela thought it was a "hang out" while Glenn says it was a date. They went shopping for shoes and watched Hercules. Their first kiss was during a movie as well, no one knows who initiated the kiss, but everyone is happy it happened.
Glenn proposed on a rainy day in August. They were visiting Angela's family for her birthday weekend. Glenn planned a day full of Angela's favorites. He took her on a picnic on her favorite mountain top then went cliff jumping by a waterfall. It took them both a while to "brave up" to jump but finally they both took the plunge! They drove home wet & freezing. Once they were home, and dried off, Glenn asked Angela to go with him on a walk. We'll let Angela tell the rest of the story:
"I went with him, in the rain, all wet again, and he took me to the cabin that my family had built. I could see smoke coming from the chimney when we got closer, and through the window in the door, I saw all the candles lit, and a ring box sitting on the table with a vase, that had a wildflower bouquet in it, including my favorite wild flower, indian paintbrush. I froze at the door, and turned around, and looked at Glenn. He told me to go inside, and so I did. The whole cabin was all swept out, candles lit, neat and tidy.
He got on his knee with the ring, and proposed."
Angela and Glenn were married in the Edmondton, Alberta LDS Temple the following March. With a reception in Canada and one in her parents home, they celebrated their marriage with family and friends!
When Angela and her family came to The Perfect Dress, Angela's sister picked out the dress and Angela immediately said No to the dress but her great sister convinced her to try it on anyway. Angela ended up LOVING her gown and ordered that day!
Angela loves her dress and Glenn loves her in it.
Angela kept her dress a surprise from Glenn but he tried to guess what it looked like. When someone let it slip that her gown had a collar, Glenn, for some reason, imagined a vampire collar?! When Glenn saw Angela for the first time in her wedding gown, with a victorian collar, he thought she was beautiful! It was an emotional first sight and they both knew that they had promised forever to each other.
Angela's advice to other brides is to try more than just one style and to be open to what other's say. Don't take too many people because it can be stressful and most importantly, pick what you feel good in and what makes you feel like a princess.
Angela loved her wedding day! Glenn gave a love-filled speech at their reception that she adored. After the reception, Angela and Glenn went into town to find a photo booth to take pictures in, and they love the way it turned out! They hang on their fridge to remind them of the love they share, and the adventures to come.
