In February of 2017, Tori Bates and Bobby Smith officially announced that they had entered into a courtship. The loving couple have taken the next big step in their relationship: Bobby proposed to Tori at scenic Weisman’s View in North Carolina… and she said “yes”! They shared the following message with us:

We’ve been looking forward to this day for so long and it’s finally here – we’re engaged! The day could not have been more magical, and the moments we shared will never be forgotten. It’s feels like a dream, and our hearts are overflowing with excitement. Thank you for all of your love and support.

~Love, Bobby and Tori
