Jordan had a strict rule against dating guys who hit her up on Instagram. So when Robert slid in her direct messages, she was not having it.
But, when they met at a mutual friend’s birthday her perception of him changed. He was kind, respectful and charming. She could tell he was sincere, so she overcame her hesitancy and agreed to go out on their first date. They talked the night away, and nearly a year later, they were engaged.
They immediately stated planning their wedding at the Koury Farms in Auburn, Georgia. Since they were going rural for their wedding, they decided to highlight the urban side of Georgia with a city-chic engagement session in Atlanta.

How did you meet?
We shared a mutual friend which is how Robb found me on Instagram. He tried a few times to get at me in my DMs ( I guess it truly goes down in the DMs ) and I wasn’t biting. I had someone I was dealing with at the time on top of I don’t date guys off Instagram. We finally met in person at my job (The club- I was a bottle service waitress) one night for the mutual friends bday. I saw him. He looked normal and he didn’t act like he knew me or was doing too much while I was working, which had me SOLD! The next day I told our friend he can give him my #. Once the friend told him that, Robb abruptly cancelled the date he was currently on, and texted me to plan ours. We set a date, which I tried to talk myself out of; I showed up a few minutes late and we talked the night away !! We knew then and there knew that this would be something special. Marriage was always our focus as individuals when dating so we applied it and we turned it into reality.
What did you do on your first date?
March 13, 2019 we had dinner at a local favorite which we plan to revisit on our anniversary every year. We shared tapas and stories, food and laughs all night until the restaurant closed. It was like time stood still! We didn’t pay attention to anyone coming or going, we were in our own bubble.
Tell us your proposal story.
9/14/20 we went to New Orleans to celebrate my bday with my best friend who had just moved back there. I had no idea it was happening because her now fiancé was actually planning on popping the question to her the next day at their son’s bday party. So unbeknownst to me Robb had flown my parents in, passed the ring around the table, avoiding me, and proposed to me while we were at my birthday dinner. Before he popped the question, he asked me to stand up and take a picture (which he never does) and my mom came up behind us while my dad recorded the whole thing. Magical night, magical weekend !
Describe your engagement session.
We didn’t have a specific theme just something classic & timeless like our love while also showcasing the city. We had fun. Posing actually came natural to us. We were singing to each other, trying poses and even popped some champagne. It was a look!
What’s your favorite thing to do as a couple?
We love to eat & brunch! We have a list of restaurants we plan to visit and just mark them off as we go while creating memories. We also love to travel … and eat while we are there!
How has wedding planning been so far?
WHEW! Wedding planning was tough. Robb did the bulk of it as well as the decor. He surprised me, let me tell ya!! I am more of a logistics person. I can put together the timeline, organize, set dates, etc. We had help from my god mother who owns her own event company. She helped our vision come to life, right down to the smallest detail.
Tell us what you’re looking forward to most on the wedding day.
On our wedding day we were looking forward to those looks we would share at the alter that we could never get back. We wanted to express our love in the purest way possible. Another thing we looked forward to most was to watch our loved ones enjoy our day! That was beautiful! We love that almost a month after people are still telling us how lit our wedding was.
