Kristen Smith, of Kulpmont, and Robert Morey, of Milton, were wed in a rustic-primitive affair in October of 2015.
The couple met over 4 years ago at the hospital while Kristen was working as a nurses aide at the time and Rob was there with an inmate. Kristen and Rob had briefly talked, but Kristen’s shift was over and she was off for a week vacation. Once gone, Rob asked
some of Kristen’s coworkers for her number because he really wanted to get to know her, but that was against the rules. One of her coworkers convinced Rob to write her a letter that they would leave on the counter for her. Upon Kristen’s return to work, she saw the
letter about how this correctional officer wanted to get to know her and how to get a hold of him if she was interested. He also explained that this wasn’t something he typically would have done, but something clicked when he saw her and he didn’t know how else to
get a hold of her. Kristen texted Rob (after investigating on social media who he was), and they have been together ever since. Kristen still has the letter as a keepsake.
Rob had the whole proposal planned out. He asked Kristen’s father’s permission ahead of time before buying a ring. He made reservations at an Italian restaurant, picked out an outfit for her to wear, and bought her earrings and a necklace. Kristen had no idea what was about to happen. After they ordered their food, Rob started acting strange. He handed Kristen his phone to read “ something he had written.” It was a letter he had written explaining his feelings for her and asking her to marry him. He said “ I brought you in my life with just one corny little letter; Now I’m asking you to spend the rest of your life with me in another.” She still has those letters as a keepsake as well.
