Gallery of Amazing Things Wedding
Very briefly Tiffany told me that her vision for the night was to exude Love & Romance! Starting the wedding day off with a first look at Los Olas Riverwalk was a perfect idea as the weather was absolutely perfect. It was indeed a special moment with their son, siblings, and my parents just before the ceremony began. The look on Mark’s face was priceless after he saw his bride in her beautiful blush-colored, fit and flare Maggie Sottero sequin and laced dress.
After arriving at the Gallery of Amazing Things Wedding, I fell completely in love with the amazing decor. The wedding party only consisted Tiffany’s only sister (Matron of Honor) and Mark’s only brother/sibling (Best Man) as Tiffany decided to keep it very intimate. However, both Tiffany and her husband attended Florida A&M University, so their where lots of friends from college. Mark is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi of which Tiffany was apart of Delta Sigma Theta, which made serenades a must during the reception.
After the amazing festivities, the guests sent off the couple with sparklers! What a spectacular sight! It was amazing. Mark always wanted to take a ride in a vintage Rolls Royce. So, that’ exactly what they did. The couple departed the wedding in a 1954 Rolls Royce.

Tell us about how you met and all about the proposal!
“One of my girlfriends knew Mark through her cousin because both where fraternity brothers. I asked her to introduce us. She told him I was interested and he sent me a message on Facebook, asking me on a date. The date was very casual…turns out, we were better as friends for the first year of knowing each other! Then one day, he realized he was falling in love with me! And I felt the same way! For the next year and a half we dated and it was absolutely wonderful! We attended everything from the Miami Heat Finals in June 2011 to The Presidential Inauguration in January 2013. Fast forward to April 2013, and we discovered we would be having a baby and he was due on Christmas Day!
I knew the proposal was coming and I was patiently awaiting its arrival! My mom was in town for Thanksgiving and I wanted to have dinner at my favorite restaurant, Ruth’s Chris. So the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Mark made reservations for to dinner. As we entered the restaurant the waitress greeted us and she asked, “Are you guys here for the marriage proposal?” I was so excited. She totally blew it, so I thought! All throughout dinner, I was thinking to myself, “When is he going to ask me?” But he never did. The next morning, I woke up and there he was on bended knee. He asked me to be his wife in the presence of my mother. I asked, “Have you talked to my daddy yet?” My father, a former state senator and my mom have always been my biggest champions! He replied, “Of course!” Our son, Mason arrived December 23, 2013.
