Columbus Athletic Club Wedding // Real Bride Angela

Columbus Athletic Club Wedding | La Jeune Mariee

Our #ljmrealbride Angela’s love story began the way many modern ones do – on a dating app! After matching with her now-husband, Cam, they realized that they worked for the same company, and were exclusive shortly after. A year later, Cam arranged a date night for the two of them at Lindey’s. Not knowing that this was the night she’d be proposed to, Angela tried multiple times to cancel the reservation, feeling strongly that they needed to stay home with their new puppy! Luckily, they stuck with the reservation, and the two were engaged!

After learning about how Angela met Cam + hearing the details of their engagement, we had to know why our beautiful bride chose La Jeune Mariee to help her find her dream dress. “I chose La Jeune Mariee because in my mind there wasn’t any other option. I had dreamed of being inside La Jeune Mariee’s walls + loved every moment of my experience there as well as saying yes to the dress. That day is one I’ll never forget”. Hearing those sweet words from Angela made our heart swell – there is truly nothing we love more than helping our brides find their dream wedding dress!

Angela said YES to Paloma Blanca style #4962, a timeless crepe gown with a plunging square neckline + nude Italian tulle side panels. Our stunning bride also worked with our team of expert stylists and recommended seamstress, Carolyn Fang, to create a custom bow to add to her gown!

“I always envisioned my dress being a clean, elegant and timeless piece. But I also wanted it to be very Angela – which meant there needed to be a bow. I worked with the women at La Jeune Mariee and Caroline Fang to bring that dream to a reality. We created a bow together in a comparable fabric, worked what dimensions we wanted it and how it should lay along with the tails. We even made the bow tails detachable so when my dress bustled I kept the large bow, but without the tails. I received so many compliments on how it was truthfully the perfect dress for me. I would wear it every day if I could! We then incorporated bows into the wedding day – my Kate Spade heels had bows, bow ties for the gentlemen, and all of our napkins were tied with ribbons into bows”.

If there’s one thing we love here at LJM, it’s a bow moment, and we love how Angela incorporated this fun + feminine detail into the rest of her wedding day!

We’ve heard about the engagement and the ‘yes to the dress moment’, now we need the scoop on the big day! Angela and Cam tied the knot in a classic ceremony at Holy Cross Catholic Church, followed by a reception at the Athletic Club of Columbus. When we asked Angela what her favorite part of the wedding day was, she shared that it was their first dance. “We had a choreographed first dance to “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. We had lessons and practiced for six months leading up the wedding and it was a moment neither of us will ever forget”. Don’t mind us tearing up over here at that sweet first dance moment!

Angela also included that they had an afterparty in the basement of the Athletic Club – The Booth – where guests could play pool + arcade games, bowl, and enjoy some late night bites. We love that this wedding day didn’t end at the reception!
