Hey there! My name is Tammy Hamby and just like Dana, I have been a long-time resident of Perry, Georgia (just a few hours north of Saint Simons Island). However, I am excited to finally call SSI my home away from home! As a graduate of Georgia College with a B.A. in marketing, I have come to acquire a diverse career from working with Congressman Richard Ray in the 1990’s to becoming a mortgage broker to managing several companies, including her loving husband’s Chevy dealership (Hamby Automotive). I love fashion, entrepreneurship, and all things wedding! So when I learned that there was no place for brides of the Golden Isles to shop locally, I instantly felt a dream develop. My previous involvement in bridal retail partnered with Dana’s genius business skills created just the right combination for us to put our dreams to reality.
The best aspect of the bridal business, in my opinion, is learning the stories of my clients. It is fascinating to hear how my brides got engaged, or what their dreams as a married couple are. I truly think there is nothing more precious than a real life love story and I count it a blessing to meet brides from all walks of life.
In my down time, I enjoy traveling with my husband, Mark, and playing on the beach with my sweet seven-year-old daughter, Mackenzie. You can easily find me in a good book or baking delicious cakes and pastries!
