Who Is Caroline Boyer?

Caroline was born on December 31, 1979, in Georgia. Although she enjoyed theater and music as a child, she went on to purse a degree in economics at Georgia Southern University.

How Did They Meet?

The couple met in 1998 when they were students at Georgia Southern University. (Bryan was a senior, and Boyer was a freshman.)

They first crossed paths at a local bar called Dingus Magee’s, and—according to the singer—it was love at first sight. “I knew that, no matter what, I was going to make my way over to her,” he told Good Housekeeping.

Who Made The First Move?

Though Luke was immediately smitten, it was Caroline who made the first move. “He was always a gentleman. We hung out as friends first, and he never made a move on me. I kissed him first!” she told People magazine. “He was always so scared of making a girl feel uncomfortable, he wouldn’t cross a line.”
