This couple could not get any cuter if they tried! Their playful vibe and super happy grins have us all smiling ear to ear today at SMP headquarters and we’re already talking about their upcoming wedding. Kristin La Voie Photography captured each and every silly and sweet moment and there’s so much more right here in the full gallery!
From Kristin La Voie Photography… I bring you this adorable engagement session of Tami and Chris. Tami (owner of TamTam Designs) is a super-creative person, so I knew this session would be jam-packed with awesome. She came prepared with a banner, love and ampersand letters, picture frames, bubbles, and the best: the picture book Chris made to propose to her with. Their love story starts by meeting on Match.com, chatting it up, and finally meeting in person at Starbucks. It was love at first latte. They are super fun, silly and totally cutesy.
From the Bride-to-Be… Chris and I met on Match.com in August 2010. My mom actually met her husband on Match and Chris’s sister also met her husband on Match, so you could say we had a little family influence. Despite rarely taking their advice, for once we both did and as fate would have it, we were each on the site for less than a week when Chris “winked” at me. He was so cute! We met for a coffee about a week later and the rest was history — we’ve been together just about every day since. I can’t imagine a life without Chris and we both new very early on that we would spend all of our forevers together. Chris proposed on the eve of Thanksgiving this past November. Chris designed my cushion-cut ring with a cathedral pave setting himself and proposed by reading me a story — a custom-made book he also designed himself and printed at Blurb.com. We are planning a downtown Chicago wedding on November 17th, 2012, at the fabulous Pazzo’s at 311 venue — a night that wouldn’t be complete without our favorite photographer Kristin La Voie and team!
