Two kids’ lives changed forever when they met at Northwest High School in 2012. “I was just some kid trying to make his way through high school thinking nothing in my life was going to change until I went to college to become my own person,” Robbie Crabtree recalls. “It was about to be senior year, and the end zone was in sight — a few measly months and we would all be in college,” he says “I wanted to follow my dreams of becoming a musician.” Life was planned out and looking good for Robbie.That is, until Camille Bailey, the most beautiful girl he had ever laid his eyes on, showed up on the first day of senior year. Robbie admits to stalking Camille on Facebook to learn more about her. They had a good rapport in class, so he asked her out. She said no. “I told Robbie I wasn’t looking for a relationship,” Camille says. With college right around the corner, she didn’t want to risk starting a long-distance relationship. But Robbie’s tenacity paid off, and after a few weeks, Camille said yes. From then on, the two were inseparable. At the end of the year, Robbie set off for college in Virginia while Camille went to UNC-Greensboro. Both were nervous about the distance, but with phone calls, visits and the internet, they made it through four years of college. “Even with competing interests, with friends, school and work, we made time for each other,” Robbie says. Bumps in the road came along, like the summer that Robbie went to Hawaii to work with a friend. Another challenge came during Camille’s junior year, when she needed to study abroad for six months to graduate with honors. There would be no visits and few opportunities to talk while she was in Spain. Neither was happy at the prospect of being separated for such long periods. Determined, Robbie made a video to promote a GoFundMe page to pay for his plane ticket to Spain. He had decided to propose and he researched the Canary Islands off the Coast of Africa, where he found a beautiful beach on the southernmost portion of the island. Robbie steered Camille toward the beach at Meso Palmas only to discover that it was a nude beach. “We finally made our way to an isolated portion of a sand dune, and I set up my camera, made my way over to her, slowly got down on one knee and asked the same girl that blew my mind in fifth-period photography class to spend the rest of her life with me,” Robbie says. Their wedding on Sept. 2 was all that they had hoped it would be, surrounded by friends and family. Afterward, they roared off in a 1969 orange Pontiac GTO. They honeymooned in Hawaii. The Crabtrees have started their married life together in Alpharetta, Ga., where Robbie is working for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and Camille is setting up their new home.
