When Emmaline “Emmy” Clark and Holt Perlman met as undergraduate students at the University of Texas at Austin in December 2014, their chemistry was undeniable. Although Emmy was a freshman and Holt was a senior, that didn’t stop Holt from asking Emmy out. Their first date went so well that the duo put a label on their relationship almost immediately.
After nearly six years of dating, Holt decided to pop the question on May 22, 2020. “Emmy thought they were having a few people out to their ranch,” the couple reflects. “Holt took Emmy up on a hill and proposed. They drank Champagne and went back down to the lodge where Emmy and Holt’s friends and family were waiting and then celebrated all weekend.”
