Do you ever meet people and you are just sure they are good all the way down to the heart and soul of who they are? Well, I sure hope so and I don’t take it lightly to be in the presence of such incredible people. When I first meet my couples, I really don’t know what to expect. As you can imagine, all love stories are at least a little different, if not worlds apart. This kind of love . . . the kind Alex & Tessa have, well, it’s just one in a million. I’m not even going to mention the tinge of guilty I have that on their wedding day (their most special of days!) I feel as if they are taking better care of Bailey and I, than we are of them. Let’s not even go there. But, I will definitely say this ~ if you want to be as close to God on the very day you say your wedding vows, I highly recommend climbing to the tallest mountain and doing it right there below the heavens. Yes, that is what I recommend . . . but, don’t be afraid to add your own spin on it, of course. Tessa was absolutely breathtaking wearing her mother’s Maggie Sottero gown as she stood at the alter to marry her handsome groom, in a ceremony performed by the Alex’s father. The specials touches and intimate moments made this sweet ceremony second to none. Let’s just say . . . we’ll be looking back and smiling at this one for years to come.
