Love Portrait: Rob and Anthony

We are excited to share the love stories of Cutest Couples Contestants!   Meet Rob and Anthony, currently in the running for our cutest couple! Keep reading to learn more about their romantic meeting and future plans.  To vote for Rob and Anthony, use the poll on the right hand side of this blog.

I'm (Rob) a flight attendant for a major airline and was flying the NY Giants to their Thanksgiving Day game 11/26/09.  We stay with the team and then fly them back to NYC. While the team slept for their Turkey Day game I decided to go out and do a little Denver line dancing.  I met Anthony on the sidelines of the dance floor instruction hour for the country dancing.  Within minutes I knew this was the one.  I just officially moved to DC January 1, 2012 and we reside together now.

Anthony is in Management with a large scale construction company based in Sweden.  Rob is a flight attendant and Paramedic for a Medical Rescue Helicopter.  We are known by our friends as the ones to call on a Friday thru Sunday.  We don't go out to the bars or clubs much but we love cooking up a storm and entertaining our friends all night.  If it's been a long work week we are very well known for hosting movie nights will all the fixing for our friends.  I always say how important our friends are to us. We would rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies. 

We have been engaged for over a year and are going to pick a venue first then set the date. That way we can guarantee we get exactly the place we want.  Ideal would be fall of 2013. We want a venue that will be start to finish for our wedding..ceremony to cocktails to reception. Two of our options are a hotel rooftop or a VA vineyard.

Congrats to Rob and Anthony and their engagement,
they certainly are a cute couple!
