Emily and Blake met in college through mutual friends. Both being college athletes at separate schools, the couple would alternate from season to season to see each other. Blake went to the University of Texas, where he played baseball, while Emily played volleyball at the University of Tulsa. After a delayed trip due to Covid in May of 2020, Blake was eager to pop the question to Emily. To Emily’s surprise, Blake planned an intimate and beautiful engagement at the park, where he brought in sand to make it feel as if they were on the tropical shores of Mexico.
