Date Engaged

November 30, 2009

Where did you meet?

Well, I've known Craig's sister Kandra for about 9 years now and she and I have been good friends the entire time. I didn't actually meet Craig until New Years Day 2008 at their parents home for dinner. He came in and I thought, "oh, he's a cutie." But he didn't show any interest so I thought..."oh well"!

By his account, he says that he remembered thinking I was cute and had a "cool" personality, but at the time he said he was intimidated by me thinking I was "out of his league", and he was in the process of ending his current relationship and did not want to meet anyone under those current circumstances.  We had our first date after he asked me out on facebook, where we had been casually conversing for a few months.  The first date was to a laid back mexican restaurant where we sat at the bar and shared each others food, it was perfect.

How did he propose?

He proposed on the day I was laid off. I was as I arrived home and he tried to calm me down to let me know we would be just fine. I was starting to get hysterical and I looked up and he had taken my hand and said "Tiff I'll never let anything happen to you, or the house or us. I'll do whatever needs to be done, we're in this together and I'll always be here with you...LOOK." And I looked down and I see something sparkling, but I thought I was hallucinating through my teary eyes. So whispering and sobbing I asked "what is that...Craig, what is that"? And he then, lightly turned my chin towards his and said "we're in this together, I love you".

When is your wedding date?

Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?

We love the laid back, very Southern feel of Savannah. With the landscapes, mansions and great food, we thought it'd be a great psuedo-destination for an outdoor wedding location.

Where do you reside now?

East Point, GA, a suburb five minutes south of downtown Atlanta.

Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day?

We plan to have a River Boat Reception and end the night bar hopping down River Street.

Anything else you would like to add?

Craig and I just love to have fun. We laugh and joke and just have good times.

It is going to be such a fun and exciting day….we cant wait!
