Schiavone Hannibal, Angela (Schiavone)

Angela Schiavone ’07 married her longtime love, James Hannibal, at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View on Oct. 18, 2014. They were surrounded by friends and family under clear blue skies. Her and her husband run a wedding photography business, ShootAnyAngle (http://shootanyangle.com/weddings/), so they trained their own side shooters to handle the wedding pictures. There were a lot of special touches for the day: there were "Hidden Mickey Mouses" around the ceremony and reception, the bride's bouquet included trinkets from family members who had passed, the groom wore a wooden bowtie in memory of his grandfather who had passed, there were antique books and cameras to showcase their passions, the cake stand was made by the Father of the Bride, the Father Daughter dance was a recording of the bride singing, and the bride's shoes contained around 1,000 Swarovski crystals that she had attached by hand. It was a perfect day! Maren Lovgren ’06 and Hayley Lovgren ’08 served as bridesmaids (and they are the groom's cousins)!
