About Tessa Ihnen

Certified Wedding Planner (CWP) • Certified Wedding Venue Professional (CWVP) • Sioux Falls Division Manager

I recently graduated from South Dakota State University with a Bachelor of Science in apparel merchandising and a minor in entrepreneurial studies. My background working in retail has allowed me to develop skills as a visual merchandiser. I focus my time on the aesthetics of a store and on promoting quality customer service. I am very outgoing and could talk to anyone for hours.

I have worked for Hitch Studio throughout my entire college career as a wedding stylist. Renee has been such an inspiration to work for, and I am eager to continue my career with Hitch Studio as a Certified Wedding Planner. After I graduated from SDSU in 2020, I moved to Sioux Falls with my significant other, Jack. I look forward to becoming more active in the community here and seeing all the wonderful wedding venues and vendors that come with this sweet little city. I am very passionate about women supporting women and connecting on a personal level. I promise that each bride that I cross paths with will be treated as if she were my lifelong best friend. Weddings and marriage are exciting, and I can’t wait to share this experience with you!

Here are some random facts to get to know me better:

  1. I am a freak about being organized....you should see my closet!
  2. In my free time I enjoy shopping, cooking, reading, and being with my friends and family. I am not a big tv watcher.
  3. I hate brown sodas.
  4. Every day I try to read at least one chapter of my book (usually it’s more).
  5. My own wedding is already being planned between Renee and I even though I am not yet engaged
