Tia Watts and Frederick Robbins became husband and wife on May 23, 2009 at the luxurious Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Sandestin, Fla. Frederick, a defensive tackle for the St. Louis rams, proposed to Tia during a victory party for his former team, the New York Giants, in London following a win over the Miami Dolphins. The two celebrated the marriage at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort after the ceremony, and Bliss Event Group coordinated the affair with lighting and rentals from Kents Tents and Events, photography by Ross Oscar Knight Photography, catering by Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, and their own floral design. Plum and ivory accents and a cake by Chef Yascha Becker completed the day. Tia’s special gown was an elegant, hand embroidered Pnina Tornai gown she found at Kelinfeld Bridal in New York City, the same boutique featured in TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress series. The day was one to be remembered for Tia, Frederick, and their loved ones.
