Tami Chynn and Wayne Marshall celebrated twelve years since tying the knot on Monday with sweet words and family portraits on Instagram.
They also treated fans to never before seen wedding footage on their hit YouTube series, Meet The Mitchells as part of their ‘Cheers to 12 Years’ festivities. Fans of the singers turned successful vloggers (known as the MTM family) poured out congrats and well wishes on social media using the custom hashtag, #cheersto12years.
The pair’s well-timed pivot into vlogging has made them a household name for their amusing and affectionate antics, starring sons Jaxen (8), Atlas (5) and Oz (2), Gio (Wayne’s eldest son), Alex (Wayne’s younger brother) and sassy housekeeper, Momo.
No longer newlyweds and very aware of their blessings, the singers summed up their emotions in heartfelt captions.
Former Alliance member Wayne Marshall was overjoyed at the milestone and surprised Tami with a getaway to one of their favorite resorts, Jamaica Inn. He once referred to Tami as a “friend who is my perfect blend,” and the Overcome deejay doled out lots of affection in his IG caption.
“Happy anniversary to us my love. Twelve years have flown by so quickly and that’s how I know we have a great thing going on. Cheers to another 12 years of celebrating family, our accomplishments and navigating life’s toughest challenges together @tamichinmitchell #themitchells #cheersto12years,” he wrote on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Tami, who once called Wayne her “steady carriage amidst all the rocky roads of life” gushed about all the “ups and down”, adding a humorous anecdote from their anniversary getaway.
“You are my once in a lifetime,” the Over and Over crooner began. “I spoke these words on our wedding day and just as I stood there believing this to be true…it still stands to this day!”
She continued, “I just wouldn’t change a thing…all the ups and downs, the good and the bad, the simple and the difficult, the arguments and the figuring it out…even yesterday when you had to pee on my toe sake a sea urchin…I wouldn’t change a thing. Simply put…even when we fade eventually to nothing, you will always be my favourite form of loving. Happy Anniversary @waynemarsheezy I LOVE YOU,” Tami wrote.
