One month later after their first date, Tiffany, sure of Mark’s character and also of their future together, perked up when Robin Thicke’s “Lost Without You” came on the radio. “I want to play this at OUR wedding” she said. Surprised that she had said “Our wedding” and not “My wedding”, Mark remembers forgetting how to breathe for a moment.
It wouldn’t take long for Mark to recover though; he remembers realizing one day that he just “couldn’t live without Tiffany.” A surprise proposal during a family trip to the Outer Banks, happened shortly after.

Through it all, Mark says, “I want people to see that Tiff and I are two committed, hardworking, fun individuals who have the strength to live a long happy life together.”
Log Sawing For Cooperation
Both the bride and groom have family roots in Germany, and with their personal emphasis on balance, family and partnership, they were excited to finish their ceremony with a finale that was sure to leave a lasting impression with their guests. Mark and Tiffany partook in a German tradition where a newly wed couple saws a log in half.
And with a little help from their family and friends, Mark and Tiffany easily overcame their first obstacle together as a married couple. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Wells!
