Where to even begin with these two. Devin and Tessa are genuinely best friends that also happen to be completely in love with each other. Devin is a total goofball and Tessa is the other half that makes him whole. These two have shared life together for several years prior to their wedding day but were crazy excited to become husband and wife.
It’s only fitting that such a fun, loving couple would also have a gigantic collection of fun friends and family as well. Because Devin and Tessa have both worked in the Downtown Champaign circle of restaurants and bars, many of their friends are mutual and form one big crazy group.
As a way to tie in that craziness, Devin and Tessa had the ultimate surprise for their bridal party. After their reception entrances, the bridal party members went to sit down and were shocked to find Smirnoff Ices on their seats. If you aren’t aware, if you stumble upon one of these drinks it’s a rule that you must get down on a knee and chug it! What was even better than their surprise is that the bridal party got them back by presenting each of them one as well!
From photos with their beloved pup Harley to Tessa’s father’s meaningful speech, the day was filled with special moments. I have loved this couple since our initial meeting and am so happy to have been able to celebrate with them!
