Tamara & Max

we're getting hitched

All You Ever Wanted to Know

Tamara & Max met in 2006 at Beyond the Edge in East Nashville. Tamara's former roommate was Max's former boss. Sparks flew instantly. After a few chance encounters, the two made it official in March of the following year.

After six years and change, Max asked Tamara for her hand on Thanksgiving Day.


Tamara was born in Dallas and has lived all over. She is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and Belmont University's Master's of English Program. She taught English (and a little bit of French) in Metro Nashville Public Schools for over six years. She now works as a digital marketing and outreach specialist at Walls Need Love.

Max was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in the Northern Virginia suburbs. He is also a graduate of Vanderbilt University and the Nashville Software School. He is a songwriter and—after an all-too-long career in food service—he works as a software developer for the Centresource Interactive Agency.
