Tessa and Cody kicked their day off by starting with a first look. Little did each other know that the other was planning on dressing up as T-Rex. We were lucky enough to be able to catch this on camera. See video to the right. Just by this instance we totally new Tessa and Cody were meant to be.
Following the first look we were all set for ceremony. Tessa and Cody had a Gatsby themed wedding so we started ceremony with some Gatsby style music. During the wedding ceremony Tessa and Cody included a feet washing ceremony as well as locking three padlocks together to signify that they were locked together and then tying the keys to balloons so they float away never to be seen again. We got a kick out of Tessa and Cody’s vows which you can see and hear after the fade to black in the video to the right.
Reception was full of fun and dancing, in fact after the sparkler sendoff Tessa and Cody came back to dance the night with their friends and family. Guests walked away with a Kern jar of Moonshine since it was a Gatsby themed wedding. This wedding will diffidently be a highlight of 2017 and most noteworthy the first look was the best ever!
