Tell us your love story. Groom: We met at the gym. I saw Tiffany running on the treadmill and knew I had to meet her. I could tell she didn’t want to be bothered, so I had a mutual friend introduce us. She told me she wasn’t interested in a relationship and needed to focus on her goals. I respected her wishes and we communicated as friends, but what started as friends eventually turned into Mr. & Mrs. Germain.
When did you know that your partner was the one? Bride: I knew he was the one after he baked me his famous strawberry cupcakes for my physique competition after not having sweets for 13 weeks. Leading up to my competition he would always help me meal prep and practice my posing, but when he brought the cupcakes, I just knew! Groom: I knew she was the one when she helped me when I got sick and how connected she is to God and family. I knew I didn’t want to go another day without her in my corner and life.
What was your most memorable moment from your wedding day? Bride: The most memorable moment for me was when everything was going wrong with the planners, the venue, and the hair and makeup staff. Since he wasn’t able to see me, he called to check up on me and it just made everything okay again. And of course seeing his big smile as I walked down the aisle. Groom: When I turned around and saw her walking down the aisle to me looking more beautiful than I can describe.
What’s the key to the success of your relationship? Both: We truly believe the key to success is always allowing God to lead you and to always put him first in the good times and the bad. When we try to fix things on our own without seeking God’s direction or guidance, we end up setting ourselves up for failure.
