Marie and Rob met their freshman year of college in South Carolina and started dating immediately after and have been together ever since. In October of 2014, Marie and Rob returned to their college for their school’s homecoming and football game. After hanging with friends at a tailgate, Rob suggested they talk a walk around campus alone. Rob took Marie to the most beautiful building on campus and as they were standing over the college’s seal, he proposed. Marie quickly said yes, and was then surprised by their college friends and some long-time friends from Oklahoma. They celebrated with an engagement party after the game!
On October 10, 2015, Marie and Rob’s Southern Soiree had finally arrived. The couple was inspired by a preppy casual wedding style stemming from their Southern roots. They incorporated navy, gold and blush into their color palette. The event took place at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame at the Gaylord-Pickens Memorial.
The reception included a delicious seated dinner and a toast to the couple with their heirloom champagne flutes. The room was covered in beautiful blooms, rose gold pottery and lanterns. Marie and Rob’s first dance was John Legend’s “Stay With You” and was extra sweet and meaningful as a family member sang it. The couple loved including special details into their big day such as their Turks & Caicos coffee table guestbook and monogrammed bouquet ribbons. They both agree that their most memorable moment was seeing each other for the first time.
Following the reception, the couple headed to Turks & Caicos for their honeymoon. Marie and Rob currently reside in Greenville, South Carolina.
