Angela Volpp & Sam Durrani

Angela and Sam’s wedding day was so perfect that Angela simply can’t pick a favorite moment. “It was an amazing day,” she reminisces. If she was pressed, though, to select the highlight of the day at The Silverleaf Club, it would be “When the monsoon cleared and a huge rainbow appeared over our wedding venue,” she says. After all, she had spent a week checking the weather forecast for her September wedding and invested in a large tent at the last minute to protect guests from the weather. However, right when the ceremony was about to begin, the rain stopped.

The day was, in a technical sense, their second wedding. “We had a Pakistani wedding the night before, where we were married by an Emam …. We served traditional Pakistani food and wore traditional Pakistani attire,” Angela says. That wasn’t the only element of the wedding that may have come as a surprise to the guests; a string quartet played “Poker Face,” by Lady Gaga during the processional, Angela walked down the aisle to “Yellow,” by Coldplay, and a 15-minute fireworks display commenced the ceremony. “[Everything] I spent endless nights planning finally came together better than I could have imagined,” Angela.
