Oysters have long been considered a food that inspires romance, and Jane and Rush would have to agree. Though Jane and Rush had met once or twice a few years before, the two didn’t really click until they ran into each other at Oysterfest in Atlanta. “About a month later, Rush managed to track my phone number down and called and asked me to meet him for a drink,” Jane says.
The Bride Jane Knox, 30, alumni director
The Groom Rush Barrett, 35, real estate agent
The Date February 17
Nearly a year-and-a-half later the couple was visiting Jane’s family in South Carolina when they started flipping through old family photo albums. “After a few minutes Rush got down on one knee, brought out the ring, and proposed,” Jane says. The pair exchanged vows seven months later in the same church that the bride had grown up attending.
