Tess and Bernard were married at Preservation Hall with a reception at the Etoile Polaire Masonic Lodge Number 1.

The reception decor featured wild smilax vines draped throughout the room and branches lashed together to create teepee centerpieces overflowing with greenery and wildflowers in dark purple, burgundy, peach, and buttery yellow hues.

The charm and character of both venues paired perfectly with the natural organic wildness of the floral décor.
