Tyler & Tessa’s design echoed the romance of old world Europe… with a few modern twists. The classic architecture of Meridian House set a tone of elegance and tradition, while warm neutrals tones and textural dried florals provided a gentle contrast. Tessa’s gown, a stunning Vera Wang, was softened by the elegant drape of detachable sleeves. The couple chose to give nod to Tessa’s Greek heritage throughout the day, with olive branches in floral arrangements and Greek “evil eyes” at each place setting, both imported directly from Greece by family members. After dancing, which included traditional Greek dances as well as a Top Gun-inspired serenade to Tessa (Tyler is a Navy Pilot, after all), they ended the night with a sparkler sendoff.
