Grant and Tessa’s wedding was simply beautiful. I remember when I first met them in the fall to take their engagement photos ~ they were so much in love! ♥ It was touching watching them now get married in the church they attend together. A lot of their friends and families came to celebrate this special day and they were all wonderful and nice. Tessa’s dress was beautifully embroidered, she looked absolutely gorgeous! Grant was nervous and excited at the same time but in the end he came off calm and collected. ;)
The photo above and to the right, is a re-creation from a photo that Tessa showed me. It was her sister, Cara’s wedding, and Tessa was the flower girl smiling at her big sister. I thought the idea of re-creating it was so cute! This time around with Tessa and Cara’s daughter, Britton. There are so many creative ideas and DIY details to share from this wedding! You can definitely see where her inspiration and colors came from. Tessa did lots of work on putting the decors together and those pomander balls for sure was time-tedious! There was a table with a dictionary and guests were supposed to circle words to remind Grant and Tessa of their wedding day. That’s pretty neat!
They look so great together. Tessa definitely rocked her wedding dress! Grant, during their first glance, was surely surprised and impressed upon seeing Tessa. Tessa’s Grandma was not feeling well and was not able to come, so she created a tag with her Grandma’s photo in it and tied it around her bouquet. Very thoughtful and clever to whip up something that quick.
Her wedding party is so cute! I loved and was honored by how they infused their engagement photos into their wedding. They projected a slideshow of the photos set to music while the guests were being seated. It was so surreal to me! And as Tessa walked down the Aisle, Grant was all smiles. Awww, she’s a stunner!
And I have to mention how Grant’s groomsmen are truly a comical bunch with plenty of jokes and spontaneous opera singing throughout the day. Grant’s best man, Nathan, even broke into a dance (to Here Comes the Sun) during the recessional. And I loved what they did for the reception. A candy bar! They had jordan almonds, gumballs, apple licorice twizzlers, root beer stick candy, cotton candy rock candy, coca-cola gummies, blueberry lollipops, and more ♥ They also served cake and pie. The cake stands even had a nest with some robin eggs. So cool and again creative! Their sweet tea came in cute mason jars that Tessa had been slowly collecting for awhile. The newly wed jars had “G” and “T” tags while the guests had “A” tags (first letter of the newlywed’s last name) which Tessa made too.
There were these blue painted eggs with bird seeds in them to shower the newlyweds when they leave, and yes she painted all of them! And that’s a whole lotta eggs!
Congratulations to Grant and Tessa! Your wedding day was beautiful and I’m so happy for you! Check out their Event Page for a slideshow with more photos!
