Detroit was home. It was where she had grown up, started out on her own, and first fell in love with the boy who she had never dreamed would enter her life. She took him home to her family and they would spend the long weekends trying out local eateries, listening to live concerts, and […]
They were introduced through mutual friends on a night that Tifani came into town to visit. The evening was spent with light conversation and laughter, but little did they realize that as they went their separate ways, the end of the evening was the start of the rest of their lives together. As Tifani made the trek home, Blake was still on her mind.
They started talking and soon after, visited each other again. In true Hoosier style, Blake insisted on giving Tifani a tour of Fort Wayne and took her to the best martini bar in town. After years of long distance and job changes so they could be together, years of moving, buying houses, and establishing an unbreakable relationship, Blake took Tifani back to that martini bar. This time, he held a ring and a question that Tifani had been waiting to hear since that first night they met.
They’ll be married next August up in Michigan surrounded by friends and family. They celebrated their engagement by strolling the city they now call home, Fort Wayne, with their dog, Belle, alongside them. Tifani and Blake, it was so fun spending a Friday evening with the two of you and I can’t wait to see what life has in store for you! All the best, M
Lee Ann had envisioned a small, intimate beach wedding surrounded by a small gathering of family and friend. The sun would be setting, the waves crashing, and the weather warm. Mother Nature had different plans, and the day of Lee Ann and Stephen’s wedding was a constant torrential downpour. Most brides (including myself), would have had a complete meltdown. Lee Ann was unlike any other bride I have ever worked with. She took a deep breath and her family cleared the furniture out of the cozy cottage family room. Her and Stephen got married in front of a crackling fireplace, with the smells of lilac and the stormy beach in the air and the rain drizzling outside. Tears were still shed, but happy ones, as she read her vows to the love of her life. We rushed down to the beach to capture a few photos in the rain, which turned out to be perfect, beautiful, and oh so romantic.
