Robin & Keelan: Concord, NC

Southern African American Weddings and Inspirations

When I first laid eyes on Keelan at work, I told my work sisters that he was my “boyfriend”. Disclaimer: This part of the story may seem a bit crazy because I didn’t actually know him at the moment. However, I was always told to speak things into existence. Therefore, I took the creepy admiral approach for this particular situation. Story continued… Keelan and I never held detailed conversations at work. We would simply pass by each other in the hallway and give each other awkward hellos. I always found him extremely attractive but every time I would be in the same area as him I would get nervous and start sweating. What can I say…I guess he had that affect on me. One day, I was approached by a mutual friend about a “serious” inquiry regarding a CERTAIN individual. After our conversation, in which we will keep confidential, my “make believe boyfriend” was provided my telephone number. I was so happy that on that day, the dating gods saw it fit for Keelan and I to finally connect. Let’s fast forward to our first date… Our first date was casual. He told me to avoid wearing heels and to just come comfortable. We met a restaurant and talked and enjoyed a few drinks for six hours. Yes…SIX HOURS! We totally lost track of time and our waitress had to let us know that we had to leave due to the restaurant closing. After our first date, I called my mom and I told her that I met my husband. As cliché as that may sound, I knew that god made this man for me. This is our love story…

After our first date, I think I knew he was the one. I loved his conversation. He was attractive and really laid back. Keelan was a totally different from anyone I had ever dated and it was truly a breath of fresh air.

Robin: The one thing I really love about Keelan is his demeanor. He is laid back, confident, and sweet. He is the total package and I wouldn’t trade him for the world.
Keelan: The one thing I love about Robin is how caring and thoughtful she is to myself and the people around her. This is why I love her so much. She changed me for the good and I am so grateful that she is my daughter’s mother and my wife.
