It’s easy to like Tess and Nate, in fact you’ll find yourself smitten very quickly (I might have a bit of a crush!). They are wonderful, adorable, funny… just plain lovely. The recurring theme of their wedding was “best day ever,” how perfect! And it was too, from the hilarious wedding party photos around the city (in the snow, no less!), to the beautiful ceremony beneath dimly lit chandeliers, and then the choreographed bride/groom and parent dances. Every single person was grinning from ear to ear! Lori and her team from LOLA Events did a bang up job on the decor and details, Salvage One proved yet again to be an amazing backdrop for a wedding, and Tess and Nate brought all the love. I can’t get enough of these two- what a day!
