Tiffany and Justin’s story began in 2009 when they were both in college. The two were in the same circle of friends, but never really approached each other. Years went by with no communication. Tiffany turned to a dating website in 2014 and a familiar face caught her eye. She knew she recognized his handsome face but just could not place him. After some healthy Facebook stalking, Tiffany realized who he was. They quickly exchanged numbers, and had their first official date on December 26th 2014. Funny the way things happen- as it turns out, Tiffany and Justin used to play across the street from each other growing up. Now, the couple lives in the same house Justin used to play in. It is all about perfect timing!
The pair was engaged on a perfect fall day in October of 2016. While spending time with their dog’s at home, Justin suggested they go enjoy the weather on their back porch. As soon as they got situated outside, Justin knelt down and popped the big question! What a simple, yet intimate engagement.
On May 5th, 2017, Tiffany and Justin were married at The Big Chill in Charlotte, North Carolina. They shared their first dance together as husband and wife to Chris Young’s “Who I Am With You”. Tiffany shined in a strapless fit and flare gown by Maggie Sottero. The dreamy lace and tulle combination was accented with a timeless sweetheart neckline. Tiffany decided to pair her Kitty Chen belt with the gown, emphasizing her figure even more. For the ceremony, she wore a fingertip length veil that featured rhinestone and pearl edging.
Tiffany has said that her one of her favorite part’s of the big day was when the couple was announced at the reception. They were hiding behind a curtain and then revealed to their guests. As for advice to future brides-to-be, Tiffany stated that one of the most important areas to invest your money in for the wedding is by getting a videographer. You can look back at pictures all day but you will never get to experience your first dance, or your first toast as husband and wife. The videographer also is a great way to capture moments that may have been missed due to the big day happening so fast!
The couple actually has not taken their honeymoon yet because they got some very exciting news right after the wedding: They are expecting their first child!!! What an amazing surprise. Nowadays, they have been trying to relax as much as possible as they prepare for their newest adventure. For fun, they enjoy going on sushi dates and coming home to snuggle their “fur” babies. Tiffany and Justin, thank you so much for letting us feature you! Cheers to what the future holds!
