Once upon a time in 2016, Tessa and I met at my friend’s wedding — Tessa reached out to me the following year and we talked about her elopement in Hawaii and her intimate reception she was planning with family and friends. I probably said something like, Ouuu, Ahhh, I loveeeee it, amazing girlfriend, Hawaiiiiii?! (pack me in your suitcase, plz)!!! You know when you just click with someone from the very beginning? That’s what happened when I met Tessa and Anton.
On that note, I could document Tessa and Anton’s love daily! They openly and happily shared their love with me from the day we met — That, my friend, is the greatest gift you can give a wedding photographer. Be you, be happy :) & Let me do the rest.
I couldn’t believe how fast August 18th, 2018 came by for these two! We started off the day in Eagan, Minnesota nearby their venue which by the way is a cute community center, see here. Tessa and Anton eloped in Hawaii the week before so their intimate reception was spent with close friends and family. A piece of advice for my future bride & groom’s, think about how you really want to remember your wedding. I love untraditional. I love elopements. I love intimate weddings. Why? Because you get to focus on all of your small and big moments; it is truly just about remembering each other and your commitment to love one another!
I could probably write a long story about how awesome Tessa and Anton is and how beautiful their wedding day was. I could also write a story about how awesome their family and bridal party was. I could also write about how they made me cry throughout their first dances. I’m not just talking about the bride and groom first dance… like all of them – Mom+Daughter, Mom+Son, Etc. Ughhhhh, tears galore. BUT, I won’t. Because I’d rather just show you.
Wishing the Skerjance’s a lifetime of love and happiness!
