Our Story
Love story? Well...

Everyone loves a great love story, and Rob & Heather would love to tell you that they met in some exotic land far, far away, knowing the moment their eyes met that it would be forever. But, the reality of it is that they met via a mobile app that bombarded them both with ads on Facebook until they broke down and signed up. For years they have told each other (and everyone else) that marriage was just not their thing. So do not set high expectations for a romantic, elegant "to do" at the wedding. What you can expect is a big helping of what makes the soon-to-be-Julian-duo work. And, that key ingredient is FUN!

Oh you still want a story? Well, ok...

Our first date was to a bowling alley where Rob learned that reservations at a bowling alley are a thing because Heather nearly scared him to death with the ensuing hour an a half long conversation that took place as a result of not having those reservations. Then Rob had to also live through Heather's incredibly disturbing and disastrous bowling "game". At least she made him laugh, right?

A few weeks later, Heather was in the Big Apple and, by losing her phone, realized Rob might have left more of an impact on her than she expected. He was the first number she was worried might have been lost forever and the first text she sent after dragging her sister to spend two hours in the Times Square AT&T store during their quick weekend get-a-way.

In no time, Rob was telling his mom about Heather after a rained out date to the Dallas St Patrick's Day Parade turned into breakfast at Barbeck's and a day at the DMA instead. (That was also the beginning of their dangerous/annoying/joyous traveling selfie habit that you all have to put up with on Facebook.)

Now thousands of miles of travel and hundreds of selfies later, these two FINALLY have decided they might just be a great pair. So, they are taking the ultimate trip - down the aisle!
