Colin & Robyn
October 8, 2011
Where did you meet?
Capstone Dorm at University of South Carolina, freshman year (he lived on the fourth floor, she lived on the second)
How did he propose?
We went up to Colin's family's cottage on Cape Cod for our annual fall trip. On October 8, it was a beautiful day. In fact, too beautiful: it was 80 degrees and the beach was FULL of people when we usually had the whole place to ourselves. So we went for a walk. A long, long walk, until we found a spot away from everyone else.
Colin got down on one knee in the sand and asked, "Will you–
"Now?! Are you sure you want to do this right now?!!" Robyn tried to cut him off. She was wearing sweatpants, her hair was two days unwashed, and she had on sunglasses. This was no time for an Important Life Moment.
"Really?!" Colin was incredulous. "Eight years of dating, and I get 'Are you sure you want to do this right now?'"
"Sorry. Start over!"
"Okay. Robyn, will you take my hand in marriage?"
"Don't you mean can you take my hand in marriage?"
"Are you going to let me do this or not?"
"Okay okay okay. Wait, did I say yes? Yes!" And then Robyn cried.
When is your wedding date?
October 6, 2012 at Old Fort Jackson (almost exactly one year after getting engaged)
Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?
Robyn is from NC and Colin from NJ, and we currently live in Hoboken, NJ. We decided to find a "neutral territory" for our wedding and wanted someplace special that we could return to for visits again and again. We had been to Savannah only once before, and when we came back to scope it out, we knew it was for us. The food alone is worth the trip!
Where do you reside now?
Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day?
Does getting married at a fort and getting to shoot off the cannon count? :)
Anything else you would like to add?

AAHHHH we are so excited to be back at Fort Jackson and with these two! Here is to a lifetime of love and happiness and we cannot wait that we get to see it all begin!
