~ Tiffany Brown ~
Tiffany is our Bi-Weekly DIY Blogger, and is getting married in 2013!
Tiffany is 28 years old and works in marketing and PR for an Interior Design and Floor Coverings Retail Firm. She also considers herself a professional crafter. A couple years ago, she went out to celebrate a birthday at a local pub. A mutual friend dragged a long a tough looking guy covered in tattoos: Henry. This tough-guy image being a weakness for this girly-girl, she quirky picked him up that night and they spent the next two years by each others side. In actual fact he was not a tough guy at all. They shared a sweet spot for cuddles, dogs, getting goofy and dressing up for theme parties, and a serious passion for laughing A LOT. Which worked out well considering it’s all they do. On a trip back to his home town, Grand Forks, Henry took Tiffany up to the peak of town. A look out known for motor cross and parties and one of their initial romantic moments as a new couple. Looking out over the entire town, they goofed around as usual taking photographs. As he sneakily took some photos of her from behind, little did she know he was also mastering the down-on-one-knee position, camera and ring box in each hand. When directed to turn around, not only did he snap pics of her shocked expression (and delighted of course!) he also held the little red box and the shiny diamond ring. So on August 31st of 2013, next Summer, two families will become one. It will be an outdoor wedding with a rustic feel, a perfect way to represent where of them have come from and how down to earth they are.
