Wedding Highlights: Angela & Jeff – 11/26/2016

About the Bouleys:

Angela & Jeff met through mutual friends on an intramural 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.

Angela 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:

Angela 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.

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.

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!
