No one would have blamed Angela Joy Brusegar for wanting to play the diva at her wedding. After all, she’d spent years working as a back-up vocalist for the likes of Chaka Khan and Jessica Simpson, all the while dreaming of a grand celebration peopled with everyone she’d ever known—should the right man come along. He finally did, in the form of M. Leon Seard, a doctor she met in her adopted city, Los Angeles. But when it came time to plan her hometown nuptials in Minneapolis, Angela Joy rethought her diva-esque dreams and realized that she wanted a more intimate (and affordable) affair.
