Tiffany Helmly & Mike Gearhart

Our Story

Mike and I both attended and graduated from Georgia Southern University where we quickly became friends. I graduated with a degree in Speech Communication and Mike with a degree in Construction Management.

You could say that our love for Georgia Southern football played a role in our continued friendship. We often joined friends at games both home and away even after graduation.

Some would say that they saw the connection well before we did... But the important thing is that we finally figured it out! After several years of simply being just friends, we FINALLY went on our first date in 2010 and, well, the rest is history!

Mike and I currently live in Marietta, GA and stay very entertained by our two bassets, Doc and Hank.
