Bobby and Michaela first met in college at the University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, Kansas. Michaela was Bobby's Resident Assistant and peer mentor his freshman year and the two quickly became friends. Bobby was new to Kansas and Michaela was a native to both USM and the Leavenworth area. Michaela helped with Bobby's homesickness and introduced him to the small community, far different from his hometown of Plano, Texas.
After college, Michaela and Bobby kept in touch and their longtime friendship soon became a bit more. Three years after graduation, Michaela moved to Dallas and Bobby lovingly returned the favor of introducing her to the new "big" city life. As Bobby shared the attractions of his home state, got Michaela tuned in to his favorite Red Dirt country music, and finally convinced her to wear a COWBOYS jersey, the playful couple soon found themselves in love 'Deep in the Heart of Texas!'
"My favorite thing about Bobby is his patience and his sense of humor. His poise and quick wit make him so easy to be around and enjoy." - Michaela
"The kindness she has towards everyone. I've never met anyone who does more for others." - Bobby
"Wow, she looks amazing." All of the stress leading up to the ceremony pretty much disappeared when I saw her. - Bobby
"We loved that we were able to incorporate The University of Saint Mary into our ceremony, reception, cocktail hour, etc. It holds such value to us and it was nice to have it represented in both the liturgy and celebration."
