Tessa was out in Downtown Cincinnati for the night. It was that fateful night that she met Tim met at Tin Roof Cincinnati during Oktoberfest. They had a drink together and Tim spent the night showing off his dance moves to Tessa. They laughed, and danced the rest of the night, not knowing she had just met her future husband.
After that night out, Tessa and Tim’s relationship started with Newport Levee. Often times, their dates would be there because it was an easy meeting spot, almost directly in between them. They spent many evenings walking the flood wall and dreaming about the future. Now, those walks are filled with talks about wedding plans, and what their lives will look like together, as husband and wife.
Their engagement was a complete surprise to Tessa…AND her mom! Tim showed his chivalry by asking Tessa’s father for permission a few weeks prior, but they decided to keep it a surprise for her mom too! They coordinated for her family to be hiding during the proposal and taking pictures. Family is important to them, and I thought it was so sweet of Tim to include everyone in such a special moment.
After she said yes, Tim had another surprise. He had rented out Oakley Pub and had all of their closest friends and family waiting to surprise her!
I was so glad to hear from Tessa when they got engaged. She and I were best friends in elementary school, and I spent many nights sliding through her family’s foyer in my socks, blasting N*Sync. It fills my heart to see she has found such an amazing guy in Tim, and I can’t wait to be apart of their wedding day! 🙂
