Congratulations! Michael Oher — a former football player who was the inspiration for the 2009 Sandra Bullock film The Blind Side — and longtime love Tiffany Roy tied the knot in Nashville on Nov. 5. The couple, who have been together for 17 years, exchanged personalized vows after a unity sand ceremony at the altar. Let’s take a closer look at their love story and the woman who captured Oher’s heart.
Meeting in College
Oher and Roy first crossed paths in 2005 at the University of Mississippi. Oher, a talented football player, committed to play for the Ole Miss Rebels, the alma mater of his guardians, Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy. After graduating with a degree in criminal justice, Oher was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2009 NFL Draft.
A Fairy Tale Wedding
The couple’s wedding took place at the JW Marriott in Nashville, and it was a magical affair. Roy looked stunning in an ÉLYSÉE by Enzoani dress as she was escorted down the aisle by her son Kobi. The couple exchanged heartfelt vows, and the venue’s ballroom was beautifully decorated in white with blue accents. The wedding also included nods to each of their hometowns, with a second-line band parade in honor of Roy’s New Orleans roots.
A Mother of Four
Roy and Oher are proud parents to four children: sons Kobi and MJ, and daughters Kierstin and Naivi. While they keep their family life private, Roy shared a sweet moment from her wedding day with her son Kobi, expressing her joy and excitement for the magical day.
A Successful Businesswoman
In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, Roy is the owner of a Nashville clothing boutique called Feminish Collection. She started the business in 2021 and aims to inspire women to embrace their figures and have self-compassion.
A Love That Puts Her First
Roy has described her relationship with Oher as a fairytale filled with life lessons and love. She admires his dedication to their family and his unwavering support. Despite the challenges that life brings, they have learned and grown together, creating a strong and loyal bond.
The Legacy of Michael Oher
Oher’s inspiring story has touched the hearts of many. From his difficult upbringing to his adoption by the Tuohy family, his journey to success on and off the football field has been remarkable. The Blind Side, based on his life, became a critically acclaimed film and earned Sandra Bullock an Academy Award for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy.
As Oher and Roy begin this new chapter of their lives together, their love story continues to inspire others. Their commitment to each other and their family is a testament to the power of love and resilience. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and love.
