Game. Set. Match. When TJ saw Maria across the room at a “Friendsgiving” party four years ago, the ball was definitely in his court.
“As a tennis pro, she’s very athletic,” TJ had gushed to me about his bride-to-be. (In fact, Maria even coached 15-year-old phenom “Coco” Gauff at the start of her career!) “But more than that, she’s very thoughtful.. beautiful inside and out,” he said. From that first meeting, without a doubt, she was on her way to victory over this man’s heart!
But there are no losers when it comes to this sweet couple’s story! “TJ is so smart. He’s also easy-going, and he really makes me laugh!” This match was truly made in heaven.
We’ve loved getting to know this pair — they’re so fun, considerate with one another, and ready to take on the world together! Their elegant wedding was the perfect representation of their teamwork. It was truly romantic; just check out their classy first dance! (And we were so glad we caught their private rehearsal just before they came on stage, too.) There was never any shortage of fun and laughter. And every detail was elegant, a perfect segue into their honeymoon in Paris, France.
We’re so happy for you, Maria and TJ. Congratulations, not only for everything good you’ve experienced so far, but also for the amazing adventure you two have ahead of you!
