Tammy & Huy absolutely love The Peachtree House, but unfortunately they found out about it after they’d already booked their wedding venue. When they met up with their wedding photographer, Rudy + Marta Photography, they just happened to be friends with the owner so they suggested that Tammy & Huy have their engagement session there so they could still incorporate it into their love story.
The shoot turned out so fun and romantic! Tammy & Huy obviously look like naturals and you can tell they just enjoy being together and laughing. They are planning a fall wedding later this year and it’s sure to be fabulous!
What was your first date like?
Well, I (Tammy) did not really know it was a date until afterwards! We had already hung out together in groups most of the time, but this time Huy asked to hang out one-on-one. At the time we were going to school in New York, so Huy took the subway over and “picked me up,” then we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and had such a great time admiring/exploring artwork and people watching. We then walked around for a little bit and picked a casual restaurant, Chirping Chicken, to eat in since we were starving and it turned out to be really good! It didn’t have to be this fancy/get all dolled up type of date, which I loved. It felt so natural and comfortable hanging out together. It was a hit!
How did he propose?
Huy told me he made reservations for us at a sushi restaurant near the beach. It was funny, because my co-workers invited me to eat out after work and I texted Huy about it, but he was adamant that we go to sushi was planned. I thought that was a little strange, because he usually is not like that, so I declined their offer and Huy picked me up from work. We walked around this famous pink hotel on the beach, the Don Caesar, because we were “early” for our reservations. We headed towards the beach as the sun was beautifully setting and I took a selfie of us. I looked at the picture right after and there was Huy, behind me in the picture, with the ring box open and smiling. Surprised, I turned around immediately as he got down on one knee and proposed! For those wondering, we did not have sushi afterwards. We had fish though, close enough.
Have you set a date?
Our wedding will take place at the Orlando Museum of Art in November 2015. We chose a museum as our venue because it’s where we had our first date, where we both felt there were sparks.
Can you tell us a little about your wedding plans so far?
We have most of the major things planned and go through spurts. It can be a headache planning it on your own, but it’s nice that we’ve had over a year to plan. We will be starting up again on another spurt soon as we’ll need to decide on/book a cake, make-up artist, chairs, etc.
