They first met at a friend’s house to play board games. She was winning, so he flicked her game piece off the board, got up, and walked out of the room. The rest was history! They have been together for 10 YEARS since!!
By coincidence, Tenee’ and Mike both are originally from Stafford, VA (now live in Florida) and went to high school just a few miles down the road from where I went to school! Tenee’ and I were able to meet up a year before the wedding for a Starbucks date since we were in the same area. Not only do we have Stafford in common, but Tenee’ is a fine artist professor! Not that that’s my job, but I’ve always dreamed of teaching a few college classes one day. So talking to her and getting to know her was so much fun!
The day of the wedding, there was such a peace at Sorella Farms. The steady breeze gently carried the changing leaves to the ground, and the light was absolute perfection. The unique, handcrafted charm of Sorella Farms matched Tenee’ and Mike so well. You could not have asked for a more perfect day!!
With Tenee’ being an artist, the design for decor and florals was STUNNING! There were flowers hanging from the barn’s beams, antique suitcases with vintage clothes, antique china, and my favorite, the dessert table 😃 Macaroons on handmade cake stands decorated the table around the amazing cake by Angela Hudson.
The thing I loved most about their wedding day was the constant flow of happiness and emotion from Tenee’ and Mike. With Tenee’ coming down the aisle (to Jurassic Park’s theme song!!), Mike lost it! It was the sweetest thing I’ve seen. Even with being together for so long, there was not a moment they weren’t over the moon for one another in sheer bliss.
We had such a wonderful day with them, and were so honored to be a part the celebration!
