We drove down to Historic St. Mary’s City and arrived at the Inn at Brome Howard. It was one of Maryland’s “weird weather” days, giving us 85 degree heat in October. The Brome Howard feels like a strong old home, built in the 1800’s with character that has stood the test of time. It seems the walls are holding the memories of hundreds of years. The fathers of the bride and groom were sitting in wooden rocking chairs on the back porch while the girls finished up at the hair salon. When Tessa arrived, her eyes were wide. As one of the most organized brides I have met, running late from her hair appointment seemed to jolt her nerves. When it came time for Tessa to put on her gorgeous lace gown from Mary’s Bridal, it was like the nerves faded away as soon as she realized she was that much closer to seeing Bill. College sweethearts, Tessa and Bill are the perfect compliment to one another.
Their First Look took place on St. Mary’s College of Maryland Campus, where Tessa and Bill met and both call their alma mater. Gah! Tessa! :) How cute are the girls’ shoes?!Tessa and Bill shared one of their first meals together in their college dorm. Their dinner was put together from a care package sent by their moms- Wheat Thins and Tomato Soup. I love that they wanted to recreate this moment at the very same table almost 10 years later!
Congratulations Tessa and Bill! We love you guys and are so honored to have been able to celebrate with your friends and family! Enjoy Spain, friends!
