How They Met:
Andria & Rob met at the Green Iguana bar in Tampa, FL in 2004. Rob was living in Tampa and Andria was visiting the area. Rob caught Andria's eye immediately, eventually Rob made his way to say hello. They had a fun night and exchanged numbers. Rob moved to PA shortly after, but the two kept in touch, traveling to see each other every few weeks. Sixteen months after that fateful night, Andria moved to PA.
Andria & Rob were engaged on April 2, 2010 at Pawleys Island, SC at Rob's family beach house. One afternoon, they went for a walk on the beach with a drink in hand and the sun on its way to setting. Rob is not much for walks so he asked if Andria wanted to play a game to break up the walk. Andria suggested Hangman, as it was always one of her family’s favorites and it was easy to play on the beach as you can write in the sand with your foot.
Andria went first and almost successfully "hung" Rob - she's always been a competitor! Rob followed, Andria began to fill in the phrase - gasping…"I love you so much, you mean the world to me, will you marry me?" Rob proceeded to get down on one knee and pulled out a beautiful diamond ring. Andria replied with "are you serious," "really?", followed by YES! Once back at the beach house, they celebrated with Rob's family who were there for Easter!
