When Eric asked Angela to marry him one chilly evening in New York City's Central Park, it was like music to her ears. In fact, a choir on the other side of the pond started singing right when he dropped to his knee. "I was sure he'd planned the entire thing, but he hadn't," says Angela. That kind of only-in-New-York moment embodies what the bride, an architect from Tennessee, and groom, an Indiana native who works in finance, love most about their adopted hometown. As an homage to the city, they wed at the iconic St. Patrick's Cathedral. After the ceremony, they created their own Big Apple moment by leading their guests -- all carrying white balloons -- down Fifth Avenue to their reception at the Harvard Club (Eric attended the university).
Here, the couple sneak a peck while leading their nearest and dearest in a Midtown balloon parade.
