Tessa walked into Physics class late. The whole room turned to look at her as she tried to find a seat but couldn’t find anywhere to sit. Tyson noticed her in her teal blue shirt immediately. He was struck by how beautiful she was and stood up to offer her his seat. She took his seat and thanked him. She was taken with him right away. From that moment on a friendship built and that friendship grew to be more and the rest is history. In her own words in her vows, “That first day in class you gave up your seat for me and stood next to me the rest of the class period. And now you still stand next to me today to make me your wife.”
When people ask us what our favorite part of this job is, while the answer is tenfold, the main answer is people like Tessa and Tyson! Meeting people like them and building lasting friendships, that is HANDS DOWN our favorite part of this job! You can tell that these two are clearly adorable and out of this world attractive but they are so much more! Tessa’s elegance and kindness shines through every moment. Also, she is obnoxiously good at any game she plays, even if it is her first time. Really, its infuriating. 😉 She has met her perfect match in Tyson, though. He’s so charismatic and funny, you can’t help but laugh with him and have a good time in his presence. The way they compliment each other but are also so real with each other, it is so refreshing! Tessa even saved her shirt she wore on the day they met and sowed a patch of it into the shape of a heart on her wedding skirt! You can see Tyson’s reaction was very sweet and emotional!
We are so glad to call these two friends and their day was nothing short of magical. Granted, we are biased, but their wedding was spectacular! From the getting ready moments at their suites in the Hyatt Regency Downtown, to their first look in the outside patio, to their beautiful intimate ceremony, their pictures in the capital park, to their super fun reception! We had so much fun, in fact, we stayed up until about 4:30 am the next day and partied the night away with them.
You guys, the love between these two is so fun and so genuine, so raw and real, it was more than a pleasure to capture every moment for them, it was a huge honor. These two have become life long friends and we are so glad they hired us to photograph their big day! Okay enough gushing……here are their photos!! Enjoy….oh and first some VENDOR LOVE! They had an AMAZING team of people including a fantastic hair stylist, creative florist, skilled DJ, amazing caterer etc!! CHECK THEM OUT!
