We met in 2014 when Karleigh, one of Katie’s Maid’s of Honor, introduced us. Our first date was in December and in typical Robbie Carr fashion, he really had no plan other than a day/time, so we ended up wandering around the Village Gate area looking for a restaurant that was less than an hour or two wait. During our nothing short of awkward, we don’t really know each other, poorly planned, first date conversation we realized that we had something unique in common... our families were both from Clyde, NY. It was all history after that.
In April of 2016 Robbie bought his first home in Spencerport and we decided to move in together once the renovations were complete. We moved into the house in December (shout out to Mr. & Mrs. Carr for putting up with us in the meantime) and have been adding our personal touches ever since. In November of 2018 we introduced our first furry family member, Cooper Carr.
And finally the good part, the engagement story:
We were spending the weekend at the cottage and had brought Cooper along for the weekend as well, so we thought it would be fun to take him for a little hike at nearby Grimes Glenn in Naples. Robbie had a plan in place to pop the question once we made it to the second waterfall along the hike but of course things never go as planned and we ended up turning back sooner than he expected. As we circled back towards the car we made a stop at the first waterfall and were laughing at Cooper as he growled and ran around trying to bite the water, and as we were both standing right there in the middle of the waterfall, Robbie got down on one knee and it was absolutely perfect. It’s safe to say it was the happiest day of both of our lives, and now we can’t wait until the next happiest - our wedding day!
