Tim Hersey & Gabrielle Morlan

Our Story

"She was my first kiss, and I was hers." He continues to say proudly, as she smiles.

Gabrielle and I met in 2nd grade.  It was, if possible at the age of 8, an attraction at first sight.  Meeting first at a local holloween party, then birthday parties, and followed by an epic brownie party - a seed was planted with a kiss.  That seed lay dormant for about 33 years.  Our lives circled one another through those years, not quite ready, not quite connecting.  As only fate could have it, 33 years after that first kiss - we had coffee.  After which, the most awkward of kisses was mislanded high upon my cheek by a fully grown, majestic pair of lips.

From that goosebump laden golden hue vision moment forward -- we've been inseparable.

Savannah bound we are! 

You might ask, "Why Savannah?"  Well - simply, historic.  Our plan is to spend one week away in a town that's described as romantic, historic, charming and most of all... so far away from anything that matters.

During our honeymoon the plan is to eat, drink, walk and be merily pre-occupied with the sights, sounds and smells definitively Southern!

We are delighted to share our honeymoon registry with you.

Libations at Rocks on the Roof

This unexpected nightlife hot spot has been one of the few venues of choice among locals in this romantic city since it’s opening in 2008. Having charmed locals and visitors with its contemporary design using natural materials derived from the water (such as the oyster shells that make up the chandeliers and driftwood creations displayed throughout this casual, but sophisticated eatery and lounge) this establishment doesn’t miss a beat from the small plates menu to the elegant and southernesque open air rooftop lounge with its romantic ambiance at sunset to the flavorful, comforting, and savory cuisine! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPOzsCmpIA0
