Carrie Pallesen and Robert McFarland, Jr. went to high school together but always just kind of knew "of" each other. Nearly ten years after graduation, Robert built up the nerve to message Carrie on Facebook and from that day on they never stopped talking.
They love hanging out with family including their "psycho" dog named Gordon. Carrie and Robert also enjoy cooking, hiking, watching sports, and working on their house together. They are an adventurous- goofy couple that enjoys comedies by Adam Sandler or Will Ferrell, and generally try and not take life too seriously. After all, laughter is the key to happiness.
On October 15th, 2018 (their two year anniversary of dating), Robert surprised Carrie with all of their friends and family at the bar where the two had their FIRST date. He popped the big question right after the Packers and Brewers both won their games that night...smart move on his part. :)
The soon to be Mr. and Mrs. decided on an adventurous wedding which included and all-inclusive cruise with friends and family. The first stop was in Key West, Florida where the couple said "I do" on a garden rooftop in downtown Key West! The newlyweds enjoyed some margaritas and great food and kept the party going aboard the Norwegian cruise line for days. What a perfect way to tie the knot -congratulations to you and your families!
