Robert + Morgan {engagement}

How long have you two been together?

Morgan: “We have been together for a year and a half. We met in March 2015, shortly after I moved to Birmingham.”

How and when did Robert propose? 

Morgan: “Our families took a joint trip to the beach over Memorial Day weekend. We had already been ring shopping and had the discussed the possibility of getting engaged, but Robert wanted to keep me in the dark and make it a surprise. I had secretly been hoping to get engaged over the long weekend, so we could celebrate with both of our families. Robert slow-played it, and finally took me on a walk along the beach at sunset on the last night. I had no idea it was coming (neither did our families), so everyone was pleasantly surprised, and we had a great celebration together that night!”

Robert- what's one of the things you admire most about Morgan?

Robert: “One of the many things I admire about Morgan is her sweet, friendly and outgoing personality. I'm pretty introverted by nature, and I'm always amazed how easily she makes friends-- and how everyone seems to love her. She helps me to get out and meet people and to be social-- and maybe I help to keep her calm and grounded. We're great complements to each other.”

Morgan- what's one of the things you admire most about Robert? 

Morgan: “How can I pick just one? I admire so many things about Robs. He is kind, loving and gentle. His patience and calming spirit is the perfect balance to my stress and impatience. As the saying goes, he is "the calm to my storm.” He's also very encouraging and uplifting, and I'm so lucky to become his wife in just a few short months.”

What are some things y'all like to do together? 

Morgan: “We like to exercise together including running and even Crossfit! We both really push each other to be our best. We enjoy good food and wine, visiting with our families, going to Alabama football games, and we like to travel!”
