Tamara & Eric: An Outdoor Wedding in Malibu, CA

Tamara and Eric saw their vision of a bright tropical-theme affair—inspired by her childhood spent in California and Hawaii—come to life at a picturesque ranch tucked away in the Santa Monica Mountains. The Bride Tamara Fillhart The Groom Eric Smith The Date August 8 “It is the story of a missing ring, a beautiful day in Santa Barbara, and our living room couch,” 31-year-old Tamara says of her engagement to Eric, 28. The couple, who met and work (in advertising sales) in New York City, took a trip to Santa Barbara for a friend’s wedding, and after several romantic cliff walks, Tamara thought to herself that it would be the perfect place for a proposal. Eric seemed to agree and said, “If I had a ring, this would be the day.” After returning to New York, Eric came home one day to find Tamara sitting on the couple’s couch. He flicked off the television, told her to imagine they were back on the cliffs, and then presented her with the ring that was missing the first time around.
