Emily and Matt met in Mrs. Rios' Spanish III class in 2010. Emily was a freshman, and Matt was a sophomore at Broad Run High School when they were seated next to each other for third quarter seating assignments. (They like to think of Mrs. Rios as their matchmaker!) Emily and Matt were friends for about a year, before Matt asked Emily to prom in the spring of 2011. Seven years later, Matt proposed by recreating the moment he asked Emily to prom.
