The elaborate spoof between the two friends had the 170 wedding guests laughing and applauding. The wedding and reception took place on June 5 at the Pacific Palms Resort in the City of Industry.
The couple met in 2006 when they were students in a philosophy of education class at Azusa Pacific University. Her parents, Henri and Shirley Lee, live in West Covina. His parents, Roy and Marsha White, live in Vernon, British Columbia.
A shared sense of humor, a love of acting and their strong Christian faith are among the qualities that drew them together. “The first time I saw Angela I thought she was beautiful,” White said. “She had a spark in her eyes.”
Lee was then a kindergarten teacher and White was teaching a high school special education class and coaching the school’s baseball team. He continues to teach, while Lee is now an actress who has performed in TV commercials.
During their wedding ceremony, the couple recited vows they had written. She said, “Brent, you are truly my heaven sent. I will promise to love and support you today and every day that we will share life together.” He told her, “I promise to give you all my love and everything I have.”
At the reception the newlyweds performed three dances they had choreographed. The first was to a rap song called “Ridin” by Chamillionaire. The second was to “Thriller.” The love song “You and Me” by Lifehouse, they danced to in a traditional way.
In ultimate romantic fashion, the bride and groom were carried off into the sunset in a horse-drawn carriage.
Their seven-day honeymoon was in Maui was fabulous, the bride said. “We wanted to buy a coconut stand and stay there.”
