Nash Charles Roberts IV first met Elizabeth Fitz-Hugh Kelleher on a fishing trip with her brother, Harry Bartlett Kelleher III. Harry and Nash are best friends and had an annual fishing trip every October. Some of the fishermen had to cancel and Harry invited his sister and father to come along. Elizabeth, who loves to fish, had been hoping to go on a fishing outing with Nash, but never seemed to make the cut. That first fishing trip was love at first sight for both of them.
Nash asked Elizabeth on their first date to Pascal Manale’s the night before Thanksgiving. The two stayed until closing and then moved the date to a local watering hole for a nightcap.
The next Labor Day, the two were in Jackson Hole freezing some gumbo that they had made earlier that day. While adding more Tabasco to the gumbo, Elizabeth saw Nash kneel down on one knee with a ring in his hand. After Nash asked Elizabeth to marry him the two immediately called their family and close friends to share the news.
After the wedding, Elizabeth and Nash went to Abaco in the Bahamas for a week to fly fish. The two are sharing time between New Orleans and Jackson Hole where Elizabeth is an Event Planner and Nash is a fishing guide in Southeast Louisiana.
