Wed­ding High­lights: Angela & Jeff — 11/​26/​2016

About the Bouleys:

Lesner-Inn-Sunset-November-Wedding-Virginia-Beach-Waterfront-ReceptionAngela & Jeff met through mutual friends on an inter­mural kick­ball team in April of 2014. While they didn’t make it to home base after the first kick, this cou­ple sure has proved that they are meant to be!

“We found love on the kick­ball field. Although it wasn’t that easy.”

As it usu­ally does, it all started with a lit­tle small talk. They found out where each other were from, their com­mon inter­ests, and hob­bies, and found them­selves talk­ing intently about sports. It was then that Jeff said a nearby waiter walked by and told him “you bet­ter not let her go man”… clearly this waiter knew a blos­som­ing rela­tion­ship when he saw it.

Lesner-Inn-Sunset-November-Wedding-Virginia-Beach-Waterfront-Reception-2Angela and Jeff saw each other fre­quently in their cir­cle of friends through events unre­lated to kick­ball, but it was Angela who made the first move. She went out on a limb, and sent Jeff a text ask­ing him to go to the beach. Being their first time with­out a “chap­er­one” Jeff was ner­vous. But their day at the beach went so well that it led to din­ner later that night!

At din­ner, Jeff wasn’t feel­ing well so he decided not to order when the waiter asked what he would have. The night con­tin­ued and they went their sep­a­rate ways. When Jeff woke up, he was feel­ing worse than he did the night before, and had to go to the hos­pi­tal. He was hos­pi­tal­ized for a week, but was still sick for weeks after he was dis­charged.

While Jeff was sick, he felt that he had ruined him and Angela’s time together. But, his future best man Nick gave him some great advice and told Jeff to give her a call to let her know how he was doing… and the rest is his­tory!

Jeff pro­posed in between the sand dunes at the Outer Banks in April of 2016. Then, on Novem­ber 26, 2016 they cel­e­brated their mar­riage at Lesner Inn!

About the Wed­ding:

Lesner-Inn-Sunset-November-Wedding-Virginia-Beach-Waterfront-Reception-6Angela and Jeff’s cer­e­mony was held at the Annun­ci­a­tion Greek Ortho­dox Cathe­dral in Nor­folk, fol­lowed by the recep­tion at Lesner Inn. After mak­ing their grand entrance, they moved right into their first dance as hus­band and wife and – with the help of a tal­ented vio­lin­ist – danced to a ren­di­tion of Nat King Cole’s “When I Fall in Love”.

Not want­ing the for­mal­ity of a plated meal, Angela and Jeff opted for our Sea Breeze Sta­tions so that guests could help them­selves to a hearty salad, mar­tini mashed potato bar, carv­ing sta­tion, and a crab cake sta­tion. Obvi­ously sup­ple­mented by sweets from our great friends – Urban Cup­cakes.

Lesner-Inn-Sunset-November-Wedding-Virginia-Beach-Waterfront-Reception-3 The night went on with a full open bar for this party crowd, and the dance floor was never empty with Cheap Thrills on the mic! With a full dance floor all night, the party didn’t stop until their bub­ble exit on the grand stair­case.
