It All Started With A Text That Read "10 Reasons You Should Date Rob"

Tiffany and Robert have the kind of story you just can't make up. It will make you believe in fate, and timing, and all things happening for a reason. Read the story and watch their beautiful wedding video by Greg Hoffman Films.

From The Bride:

A few years back I had left my job for another opportunity. Little did I know that my future husband would be replacing me. A few years went by without us ever meeting. Rob relocated back to New Jersey to open an office out there. In the meantime, I was trying to relocate back to Massachusetts. Things didn’t go as planned for me so I had to sign another year lease. August 2013 Rob decided to move back to the Tampa Bay area. He kept in touch with our old manager/friend of ours, Colby. A month or two went by and I received a text from Colby stating “10 reasons why you should date Rob Federico”. I would pay a ridiculous amount of money to still have that text in my phone. It was pretty hilarious and at the time I didn’t think it would amount to anything. Two of the reasons ended up being the same, ” he is awesome”, so I told him he needed to give me another reason. I wasn’t ready to start dating at the time but I told him I would reach out when I was ready. Three months went by and fortunately for me Rob hadn’t been scooped up yet (phew)! January 16, 2014, we went on our first “this isn’t a date” date at Fly Bar in downtown Tampa and it’s been history ever since.
