Amy Sebo and Eric Tesker met two years ago through a mutual friend. They went on their first date a week later and have been inseparable ever since. In the past couple of years since that first date, they have not gone more than a week apart from each other. "Amazing when you can find someone who you love talking to. A best friend for life!" They love spending time together, whether it is playing darts in the basement or grabbing a few beers from a local tavern. Anyone that meets these two can feel the love they share for each other. I love the way Eric can make Amy laugh! I had such a great time capturing those moments between the two of them!
Amy and Eric were engaged on December 10th in 2016 in downtown Milwaukee. After weeks of working hard at work and on their new house in Grafton, they decided to take a break for a weekend. Eric suggested they go back to all of the old bars they went to on their first date. After a few drinks at the first bar, they walked to the second. It is a back alley speakeasy but they were closed. Eric tried opening the door, turned around and proposed to Amy! "It was such a sweet, surprising and thoughtful way to make it special".
After the couple visited Key West they fell in love with the relaxed atmosphere of the island. They decided to have a destination wedding where they exchanged vows oceanside at Fort Zachary Taylor! The wedding was vintage and romantic with classic black suits, gorgeous burgundy gowns, and unforgettable beach floral decor by Milan. Guests enjoyed the best view on the island where the couple made it official at the point where the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic oceans meet. After first dances on the beach and sunset, Old Town Trolley took everyone for dinner and the reception.
The outdoor reception took place at the Rooftop Cafe restaurant known for its signature award-winning cuisine! The couples decor included photo frames with family members, a globe as a sign-in book, and photos of the couple when they were young. Such a cute idea!
After dinner the new Mr. and Mrs. Tesker cut the cake and it was PARTY TIME! Congratulations Amy and Eric!
