Boston was bound to bring Hervé and Tammi together. That’s where their love story began, but it took five years (yes five!) for moves to be made and love to find it’s way. On a Sunday morning in December, Hervé planned the perfect riddle hint for his future bride in an elaborate plan to pop the question but one small detail got in the way of his plan: Tammi has a clever way of getting information out of people. Enlisting the help of both Tammi’s mother and best friend, Hervé was able to keep plans under wraps just long enough to surprise the soon-to-be Mrs. Fumberi on bended knee. (Aww!) As the two began to plan their future, they kept God at the forefront of their union and made their way toward forever. See their modern elegant wedding day, which was full of vibrant colors, grace, family, and well, love, of course.
