Angela and Ariel’s long-awaited wedding at The Palace at Somerset Park was everything they dreamed it would be!
The #RoadToRivera was not an easy one, as Angela and Ariel got married on their original date, July 23rd, 2020 but postponed the big celebration with family and friends.
Almost exactly one year later, when the big day finally arrived, these high school sweethearts could not have been more excited!

Angel’s self-proclaimed style for their wedding was “modern glam” with lots of sparkle and shine! Nailed it.
This giant mirror at the Palace in Somerset provided the most stunning backdrop to display the beautiful bridal gown.
If you have the opportunity as a bride, do a first look with your dad! You can feel all of the feels when Angela’s dad saw her as a bride.
A unique way to honor those who have passed, keep small pictures of them close by your heart on your wedding day.
This bride and groom’s first look was so much fun!
A foreshadowing of how much dancing was to come during the reception. These two know how to have a great time.
These groomsmen were thankful for this perfect weather to wear tuxes and shades. Lookin’ good, guys!
The neutral taupe of the bridesmaids’ dresses really allowed this bride’s white dress to pop.
The Palace at Somerset Park had so many great options for portraits of our newlyweds!
This bride and groom only looked at three venues – they knew as soon as they saw it that The Palace at Somerset Park was the place for them.
That veil though!
Angela and Ariel love to be goofy together and make each other laugh. Some of the keys to a successful marriage!
The Palace at Somerset Park provided exactly the modern chic vibe Angela and Ariel were looking for.
Even though this couple was already legally married on their original date in 2020, it was important to promise to spend their lives together before their friends and family. So, they exchanged rings and had this special moment with everyone they love present to witness it.
You may now kiss the bride (again!)
This bride and groom were on cloud nine about finally being able to celebrate their wedding (sorry, I had to).
Some beautiful speeches from family and friends before this party got going!
Having great food on their wedding day is something this couple was so looking forward to – they love trying new food together- and the food at The Palace at Somerset Park did not disappoint!
It was an epic dance party all night long!
The biggest first piece of cake ever!
Sparklers are always a great idea to end the night.
A gorgeous night! We took advantage of the full moon for some night portraits.
A cigar roller was a fun touch during this reception on a beautiful night. Taking advantage of being outside on this beautiful cool summer night was a must!
The face you make when you’re dancing out 18 months of being cooped up. Happy to be celebrating this fantastic couple!
This bride and groom specifically told me how much they were looking forward to having lots of pictures from their wedding, so I was beyond happy to deliver these to them! I wish them a lifetime of happiness and more epic dance parties.
