From the bride on how they met and got engaged: “We actually met in high school. I worked for Robert’s mom, who owned a clothing boutique in McKinney. We aren’t the same age; Robert is a bit younger than me, so we didn’t interact too much except for the occasional times when I would help his mom and pick him up from school (we laugh hysterically thinking back on those car rides now). Fast forward ten years later and a mutual friend that cuts both of our hair reconnected us and asked if she could give Robert my phone number. He called and asked me to dinner, and from that night the rest is history. We have been together ever since.

For the proposal, Robert took me back to McKinney Boyd where he first remembered seeing me when he was a freshman. He took me back to the exact room and had roses petals, candles and a sign that said ‘Merry Me’ (it was Christmas Eve so he played into that with the ‘Merry’ part). It was one of the most thoughtful things I have ever experienced.”
