Tiffany Marie Eldredge, daughter of Lori and Steven Eldredge, and Joshua Kaiser Mussman, son of Suzanne Kaiser and Michael Mussman, were married on Oct. 9, 2016 at their ranch on the east side of Tucson. The groom’s father, Michael, officiated, with his wife, Sara, singing alongside him.

The bride did not have a maid of honor, but split the duties and title among her sisters, Amy Eldredge of Salt Lake City and Annelise Eldredge of Los Angeles, and her best friend, Jennifer Baker of Portland, Ore. She had a total of six bridesmaids. The best man was Joshua’s brother, Aric Mussman of Tucson.

The bride and groom both work in the food and beverage industry. Joshua is the co-owner of several local restaurants, Vero Amore, Noble Hops, The Still and Sazerac Creole Kitchen & Cocktails, and in Salt Lake City, Utah, Tinwell and Yoko Ramen. Tiffany helps manage and run a few of the Tucson restaurants, focusing on the bar program for the company. She is a trained mixologist.

They honeymooned in Paris and Barcelona in early November.


Tiffany is 29 and Josh is 32.

How they met:

Tiffany and Josh met at Noble Hops, when the restaurant was first opened. She was a patron and the two met one night on the patio. Tiffany began working for the company, but the two fell for each other almost immediately. That was five years ago.

The proposal:

Josh took Tiffany to look at their new home (Spud Rock Ranch, where they were married). On the day of the closing he took her in the backyard and under a very large tree he proposed to her.

Wedding planning triumph (or challenge):

The triumph and the challenge were the same thing, we did everything ourselves! The venue was our home, the food was from our restaurants. We supplied the glassware, silverware, plates, beverages, staff, décor, etc. It kept us very busy!
