How We Met: Rob and I first met in 2009 through a mutual friend. We didn’t start getting to know one another until about 4 years later. I was about to graduate from college in New Hampshire with plans of moving to South Carolina after gradutaion and he was living in Vermont. We went on our very first date 3 days after I graduated- We saw the Avengers and had lunch at Vermont Pub and Brewery. The next month, I moved to South Carolina. We tried a long distance relationship for about 5 months but the stress started to become too much for both of us…So Rob made the move to SC with hopes of making our relationship work. We have been together for 3 years!
how they asked: Rob and I came up to Vermont in May of 2015 to visit our friends and family. We had the romantic idea of recreating our very first date while we were in town…We saw the Avengers 2 and after the movie, Rob asked if I wanted to take a walk by Burlington’s waterfront to see the view. As we walked alongside the water, we ran into one of his friends who had a camera and was taking photos of the sunset. His friend asked if we wanted to have our photo taken…So as we were positioning ourselves in front of Lake Champlain, Rob got down on one knee, pulled out a beautiful diamond ring and asked me to marry him! I was immediately stunned and overcome with happiness (and emotion)! I said YES! and we celebrated at Vermont Pub and Brewery where it all began 3 years ago -It was the perfect day.
