The groom wore a tux by Musika Frère.Dinner was served on the lawn, where guests were treated to a prime view of the ocean. (JILLIAN MITCHELL)Porsha Summerville was exhausted—but didn’t mind a bit. As an account manager for a fashion designer, she had been in Paris for 10 days—and had spent every night on the phone with Terry Baawuah. The two had recently connected at a party in New York City and, feeling an instant spark, discovered they could talk about anything. “We were head over heels, chatting eight hours a day,” she says. When she returned home, they became inseparable; after a month of dating,…
