I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful setting for Tammy + Gihan’s wedding if I’d dreamt it up myself. Beautiful sunken gardens, a grove of stately oak trees and whispering wheat fields – small pieces of heaven on earth.
This couple has intrigued me since the first time I chatted with them on the phone. Tammy + Gihan have been planning their Maryland Eastern Shore wedding all the way from the Big Apple and I’ve slowly gotten to know them through our many phone and Skype conversations. I love how, much like myself, Tammy + Gihan can be quite serious and straight to the point when need be, but at the same time, clearly have a fantastic sense of humor and find joy in so many things in life. I loved that mustaches played a theme at their wedding, from the silly Save the Date card to the mustache coffee mug guest favors. Mustaches make everything better, right?
The highlight of their wedding for me though was definitely their first dance, taken straight from one of the greatest movies of all time: Dirty Dancing! The twirls, the moves and of course, the lift, all made it into the dance and it was spectacular. It was so playful and fun to watch and brought in a big piece of this couple’s fun loving personality to their wedding day.
