Garrett and Emily met during one of Emily’s many visits to the University of Colorado while they were both in college. They were introduced to one another by mutual friends and immediately felt a spark. Though Garrett stayed in Boulder and Emily returned to Austin to finish her degree at the University of Texas, their relationship continued to blossom through lots of text messages, calls, and visits to both Austin and Boulder. After graduating, Emily returned to Denver where Garrett and Emily have been by one another’s side ever since.
Garrett and Emily traveled to one of Emily’s favorite destinations, Orlando, Florida. They had plans to spend several days at Disney World, where they would also complete a half marathon, along with Emily’s parents. Garrett and Emily ended a wonderful day at the Disney World parks at the Magic Kingdom fireworks show, where Garrett asked Emily to marry him. Of course, Emily said yes! They were so lucky that Garrett’s mom also happened to be in Orlando for a convention, so they were able to share their good news in person with both Emily’s parents and Garrett’s mom right away!
