Tessa and Anthony had a beautiful winter wedding at the United Nations building.
Tessa shares, “We chose our wedding venue for nostalgic reasons. The U.N. holds sentimental value to my family since I am an alumnus of the United Nations International School and my father was a respected member of the Security Council of the U.N. for many years. It only felt appropriate that my husband and I have both our marriage ceremony and reception there.
My wedding style was centered around being a modern day Grace Kelly with a little Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. I wore royal blue shoes similar to hers as an homage to one of my favorite T.V. characters.”
The reception was surrounded with windows showcasing gorgeous views of the city lights. The couple shared their first dance to Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight.
Tessa and Anthony went on a honeymoon to Mayakoba at the Banyan Tree Resort in Mexico. Congratulations to the happy couple!
