Isabela and John Michael grew up in Houston, where they attended the same school and church. However, the pair didn’t start dating until the end of their senior year of high school when Isabella was deciding where to go for college.

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.
A decade ago, Ariel and Jake met at a local bar in Katy and had been inseparable ever since. Jake popped the big question a few days after their son Lincoln’s first birthday. Ariel had him tag along on a full-day shopping spree, and when they arrived back at the house, Ariel opened the door to Jake on one knee. “Of course, I cried and said YES! Jake and Lincoln put my ring on my finger, and I was on cloud 9, he customized my engagement ring, and it was exactly how I wanted it, and I had NO IDEA!” says Ariel.
