Tessa might be the closest thing I have to a sister. Her older sister, Mary Courtney is my best friend and we basically grew up together. The memories I have of us playing dress up, making the most ridiculous music videos together, and bossing her around are endless. Tessa is kind hearted and full of life. I have watched her grow into the most beautiful woman of God and I’ve always known that whoever she would choose to spend her life with would be an incredible guy. Matt is humble and kind. He is a hard worker, loves people deeply, and he loves Tessa so much.

There is just so much that I could say about these two but one of my favorite things about them is how they met. 2 years ago I photographed Tessa’s brother’s wedding and Matt was a guest. Matt was friends with Clay through Young Life and he came to the wedding alone. I’ll never forget meeting him for the first time the day before the wedding and then later running into him in the local grocery store. He was by himself browsing for something to eat for dinner and after talking to him for a couple of minutes, I remember saying to Jamie “Wow! what a nice guy!” Tessa and Matt hit it off on the dance floor and I’m so glad that I was there to capture the moments of some of their first dances together, and even more excited that I’ll be able to capture their true first dance on their wedding day.

Matt and Tessa, I love y’all and truly can’t wait for your wedding day!
