High School Musical star KayCee Stroh is still cooing about her Jan. 9 wedding to Ben Higginson.
The 24-year-old actress, known to fans of the popular HSM movies as pop-and-lock girl Martha Cox, tells PEOPLE in its upcoming issue that she was glad to share her special day with 500 family members and friends including Monique Coleman, Bart Johnson, Ryne Sanborn and American Idol‘s David Archuleta.
“It meant so much to me that they came,” Stroh says, noting that she was most proud that the day really captured hers and Higginson’s personalities.
“We wanted this wedding to be romantic and elegant but the most fun that a wedding could be,” she says. Their mission was accomplished with great food, great friends, dancing and “a photo booth so our guests could take photos of themselves. We will get a book of those pictures so we can look back at everyone who shared the day with us. It was the wedding of my dreams.”
Adds Higginson, 24, who co-owns a video production company, “I hope our marriage can be the same way as our wedding because our wedding day was awesome!”
