Tiffany DeFiore
I live in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
We are having a beach wedding (Saint Pete Beach) @ Grand Plaza Hotel & Resort
My fiance, Marshall, and I met at work. 
We have not finalized colors, but we are thinking of beach theme with bright colors.
I am currently (graduate Dec 2015- another reason for wedding date so far out) a Physician Assistant student at Barry University. I play the violin; love music. I have a 16 lb cat at home who is our child (for now). 

Please respond and add posts for all brides to respond to. Use this as your help line.

    Devon, 

    Very nice to meet you. It is such an amazing and awesome thing that you have known your fiance for so long. Congrats. 
    I love the fall color scheme, mine is a beach wedding in FL, but because I love fall colors and suck at choosing colors I began to clash the two and had to let go of fall colors, but glad you get them.
    What do you write?  I love animals too; I have a 15 lb kitty at home <3

    Excited we are all here and hope there are more to come.

    Thanks! people usually think it is strange that we've known each other forever.
    A beach wedding in FL in the fall sounds amazing!

  • Hi all!
    I'm Katherine I live in a small totally not exciting town in central PA. I want to have an elegant, amazing, outdoor, fall themed wedding! I meet my fiance at work. He was a cook and I was a server (totally opposite of what we do now.) We knew each other for about five years before we started dating and for the first year we completely avoided each other, then when we started talking I would use the cheesy pick up line of "I love your sexy reseeding hairline." I'm not sure of what our color scheme will be yet but red is my favorite color so that will for sure be in there. As far as interests go, I love to write and have a grand dream of being a children's book author some day. 
    I am so excited for fall weddings! Yay go us!

    Color Scheme: lapis and emerald
    Interests/Information about You: I'm a paranormal investigator, and would LOVE a historical place to get married at.  My fiance is from NY so I decided to have the wedding in NY becuase of that and also because of the castles/mansions/history of Sleepy Hollow.  What I wasn't prepared for was the shut down of some venues since we're so small (45ish people).  :(
     
    My wedding is 18 months out because my family is traveling from Canada and they have to plan and save!
     
    Look forward to talking and getting ideas from you ;)

  • Side note....are people acting like you are crazy for planning this far in advance?

    Not really; if you want to get a good place around Baltimore you have to book about a year in advance. We haven't really told many people that we're actually planning though. They thought we were crazy for waiting over a year and a half from the time we got engaged to when we wanted to get married.

  • Wow, I'm getting all kinds of crazy looks cause I have a lot of it planned (in my head mind you, I can't book the venue until one year in advance) I am focusing on the little thing  like jewelry and shoes and favors and details until I can book the venue.

    Interests/Information about you: I'm an accountant.  I started taking an adult tap class last fall.  I danced my whole childhood so it's great being back!  During the summer we're at my fiance's parents' lake house in the Poconos pretty much every weekend.  Other than that, I'm pretty boring and just like to stay in and watch movies, play video/board games, and watch tv.
