Royal Lane Baptist Church & Northwood Club Wedding | Tessa & Jay

February 1, 2020

I’ve been dying to press “publish” on Tessa and Jay’s wedding blog because:


Classy, romantic, elegant.

Everything about the Benner’s wedding day was absolutely stunning, executed perfectly and crafted into the most special day for Tessa and Jay. The girls day started at Tessa’s aunt’s house which was beyond lovely for the ladies to relax, toast champagne and have their hair and makeup done. Natural light was flowing everywhere, and the mood was more than relaxed. Tessa’s Maid of Honor and sister shared a sweet toast, some sweet tears were shed, and it was the most heartfelt start to what was easily Tessa and Jay’s best day ever.

Now, can we please just talk about this bride? Tessa radiates joy, peace and kindness, to name a few of her top attributes. She’s as lovely on the inside as she is beautiful on the outside, and I just couldn’t be more happy for how her beautiful day unfolded from the beginning of the day until the most epic dip and kiss through their sparkler exit. I was obsessed with every detail about her wedding attire from her classic, white wedding dress to her heels and jewelry. Witnessing the joy and support from all of her many bridesmaids and family members who were by her side all day long confirmed what a kind and sweet soul this gal is!

And it was truly such a joy to know all of her loved ones who helped and supported along the day! From a sister who carried the Maid of Honor, sister and planner role oh-so-beautifully to an aunt who offered her hospitality and executive decision-making throughout planning, it was amazing to see what loving teamwork came together for such an incredible day. This couple is beyond loved!

It was so moving to watch Tessa’s “first look” with her bridesmaids, her dad and brother and finally her groom, Jay. It was like all of the emotions and love built up to lead to her soon-t0-be husband seeing her for the first time, and I was totally there for it. And lucky enough to DOCUMENT it! The tears, the emotion, the tight hugs, the joy.

It’s such an honor for me.

And it’s such a special day that gets to be relived over and over through photographs and memories. Tessa and Jay, your celebration will absolutely be unforgettable in my books! With a reception as gorgeous as it was, it only made sense that the dance party would match it. In10city absolutely brought it, and the dance floor left me dancing, pumped and wanting to capture it all up so perfectly as to remind them just WHAT a celebration it was!

So forgive me for over-posting from this beautiful celebration, because it was too easy to over-snap! Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Benner and their beautiful families who became one! Love these two!
