Seven years ago David and Tiffany met at the Fort Lauderdale airport when he was the pilot of her flight to Key West. Neither of them were where they were supposed to be. David was normally flying in Albany, NY but was sent to Florida to cover a sick pilot, and Tiffany and her friends planed a last minute trip to Key West. They first saw each other when David entered the gate area, making awkward eye contact when they caught each other staring at one another. David then ensured that Tiffany and her friends were on his flight since there were two planes taking passengers to Key West. The plane was small with no cockpit door or a first officer. David asked if anyone wanted to sit in the copilot seat (secretly hoping Tiffany would), but another passenger got to it first. You would think that they would've had more interactions during the flight to Key West, but neither said anything (someone has to fly the plane). Regretting not saying anything to the pilot, which she had told her friends she thought was cute, Tiffany decided to make a move! Tracking down a ramp agent to help her, Tiffany left her number behind for David. Later, while exploring Key West Tiffany eagerly checked her phone hoping to hear from David. Once David returned to Fort Myers he text Tiffany. She immediately knew it was him (thanks to his witty text)!
David returned to Key West that evening and met up with Tiffany and her friends. They explored Key West together all night and by the end of the night neither of them wanted to say goodbye to the other. They didn't know if they would see each other again (being that they lived states apart), but this was just the beginning of their love story! From that night on they talked non-stop and soon began a long distance relationship. After many flights back and forth to visit each other in New Jersey and Florida they finally moved in together. They have now lived in three different states and traveled to three different countries together. They are each others best friend enjoying baseball, hockey, camping, and traveling together. There isn't anything these two would want to do without the other. They can't wait to become husband and wife and to take on all of life's adventures by each other's sides.
Wingate Plantation was part of the colonial Brick House Plantation of Johns Island. Wingate Plantation represents the largest, undeveloped, intact parcel of the original plantation. The farmhouse on the property dates back to the 1930’s, when it was constructed by the Jenkins family.
The Ceremony is nestled among centuries old, majestic oak trees draped in Spanish moss. The Reception will take place under a tented patio overlooking a saltwater pond. The wedding attire is formal; suits for men, formal cocktail dress, long dress, or pant suit for women. Note: the ceremony and cocktail hour take place on grass.
We want you to be able to really enjoy our wedding day, feeling truly present and in the moment with us. We've hired an amazing wedding photographer named Jenna who will be capturing every detail and tear worthy moment. We respectfully ask that everyone leave all cameras and cell phones off and away during our ceremony to be completely present and in the moment. Of course we will happily share our ceremony photos with you afterward!
