Tiffany + Christoph's Fairy Tale Wedding at Goodwin Manor
Fate brought Tiffany Clark and Christoph Singer together and they never looked back. The two met at a ministry school in California that Tiffany came to from Arkansas and Christoph came to from Germany. The two both joined the BSSM cheer team for the yearly staff versus students basketball game.
Christoph asked Tiffany on a date and from then on they became inseparable. "From then on we saw and/or wrote to each other every single day till about three weeks later when we officially started dating," Christoph says. "I am so thankful that my small group leader in BSSM first year got me to join the cheer team. It changed the rest of my life!"
The couple decided to have their big day on June 16, 2019. Tiffany took on the role of wedding planner for her big day with the help of Sarah with Graceful Events on the day-of. Tiffany and Christoph fell for Goodwin Manor and the rest of their wedding style stemmed from their venue choice.
"My husband and I loved it because it had the castle feel," Tiffany says. "I wanted to be a princess and he loved castles that reminded him of Germany. We also knew after looking at the venue that we then wanted our wedding outside, because my husband loves the outdoors, and we wanted the cross right in the middle since faith is so important to us and how we met. This venue was our most expensive part of our wedding, and we were so glad we splurged on it!"
Read on for more of Tiffany and Christoph's beautiful and romantic wedding day.
On the dress: "The dress was one of my favorite things about the wedding!! It was everything I dreamed of, and the back was the best part! It was V-neck with nude lining. It had pearls and beads on the top, and then when it got to the waist, it poofed out. I always knew I wanted a ballgown and to have the fairy-tale feel. The back was even more of a jaw-dropper and had strands of beads that laid on my back and connected on the other side. I loved everything about it and how it fits!"
On the bridesmaids 'fits: "For my bridesmaids, I knew I wanted the cornflower blue color. I picked colors that made me feel good to look at. I knew the color was bright enough but still allowed the pink flowers to pop! I let my bridesmaids pick the styles they wanted because I wanted them to feel confident and look beautiful in what they personally loved!"
On their wedding day theme: "Our theme was more of a garden, Happily-Ever-After theme. We wanted it to be a celebration and also feel very romantic and intimate. This describes our relationship the most when we have a day of fun but also intimate and full of celebrating our love for one another with the people we love!"
On florals: "My bouquet was one of my favorite things about the day. I love flowers and Kelly with A Perfect Bloom did such an amazing job! I had decided between doing neutral colors or going full-on with the bright and fun colors. For me, it was important that the wedding really showed my personality, and fun and bright is what I went with to describe me! I wanted some blue flowers in there to really bring in the cornflower blue with all the other colors going on. It was important to me that there were several different shades of pink to make it even more colorful. My bouquet was full of oranges, yellows, pinks and of course the blues! It was a dream!"
On ceremony decor: "During our ceremony, we had the cross in the middle decorated with flowers. We also had two centerpieces on the sides of the isles, and a floating 'S' in the pool for people to see when they look up for me to walk down the aisle. The floating S was something that my mom thought of, and it was so fun to have it in the pool! The S was made out of light pink/white flowers and floated on an isle of greenery with some of the flowers that were at the ceremony!"
On their reception style: "For our reception, growing up in the South, I wanted it to feel like a big Southern family reunion. I wanted people to feel at home and to have some of the colors pop throughout our decor. We had lanterns, greenery and wood decorations to blend with the farm tables. We also had the cornflower blue napkins from A Perfect Bloom to really bring in the color of the bridesmaid dresses. We had honey at every seat for our guests to take home. All of our guests had the German honey (that Christoph's parents make), and the German guests had American honey. We loved adding touches that really brought both cultures together."
On their first dance song: "Our first dance song was called 'Known' by Tauren Wells. This song is actually intended to be a worship song about God and how he fully knows us. When I heard this song and the lyrics I knew that this song described how known I am by my husband, Christoph. The lyrics are, 'I’m fully known and loved by you, You won’t let go no matter what I do, And it’s not one or the other, It’s hard truth and ridiculous grace to be known fully known by you.' For me, this song describes our relationship and that it is such an amazing grace that I found the man that knows and loves everything about me. It really is a great feeling to be so known by someone, and to know that we will only get to know each other more for the rest of our lives."
On their getaway ride: "My parents and aunt and uncle actually surprised us with the horse and carriage as our getaway. It was the icing on the cake and really topped off the end of a perfect day that I had dreamed of since being a little girl. Christoph and I enjoyed being able to ride away feeling like we are in a fairy tale book, waving at all of our friends that were there the very end of the night. It was magical."
