Jessica Elizabeth Angst, Charles Aaron Simpson Host Wedding At South Florida Shooting Club After Meeting At PGA
What they do: Charles Simpson, 39, owns Simpson Advanced Chiropractic & Medical Center, and Jessica Simpson, 27, owns the full agency marketing company Firek & Simpson Esoteric Network Group.
How they met: Jessica and Charles crossed paths during a networking event at Dirty Martini in PGA. It took Charles a year after that to persuade Jessica to go on a date with him. On Jan. 4, 2012, they went to Spotos in PGA. “We knew we were meant to be when we were the only ones laughing at one another's humor and gestures,” Jessica says. “[It] felt like we [had] been together for a lifetime.”
On selecting the venue: Jessica and Charles chose to get married at the South Florida Shooting Club in Palm City, since they love going there together for an adrenaline rush. “It's our favorite activity besides pranking one another,” Jessica says.
On the theme: The couple decided to incorporate a “modern rustic” theme to coincide with the venue.
What made it special: The couple's then 1-year-old son, Brander, was present at the wedding. “Watching mommy and daddy unite as one, [seeing] pictures of these moments and [having] him present will last a lifetime for us; and for him to be able to see himself there was a dream come true for us,” Jessica says.
