After knowing each other for more than a decade, the pair officially started dating when they were in their senior year of high school in 2011. Since then, the duo has been going strong with their relationship.
Following six years of romance, Scotty got down on one knee and popped the question to Gabi in September 2017. During the proposal, the pair were on a hike to their favorite trail near Grandfather mountain in North Carolina.

The wedding took place in the North Carolina mountains among their loved ones. Prior to their wedding Scotty opened up with PEOPLE magazine revealing the kind of bond they shared. He said,
“We’ve been dating six years and have known each other our whole lives. That kind of story doesn’t happen too often nowadays. I support her dreams and she supports mine.”

Adding to their wedding activities, the pair had a rehearsal dinner night before the wedding on "up on the cliffs" of their wedding venue. The wedding took place on Saturday i.e. 16th June 2018.
During the ceremony Scotty's bride, Gabi wore an elegant sleeveless bridal gown with V-neck and lace accents by Morilee. The couple shared their first dance to "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Elvis Presley.
Turns out the couple served an assortment of pies instead of a large wedding cake. Talking about the wedding theme of black, white and gold decors Gabi gave insights on the wedding theme. She said,
“I kept it very classic. I went with greenery and white flowers, some lanterns and candle votives [for a] rustic feel. We fell in love with the mountains during the summertime [when Scotty proposed], and our [venue] is like a little castle in the woods.”
After the fun-filled biggest day of their life, the pair is set to head for a romantic honeymoon to Tahiti on 19 June 2018. After returning for their honeymoon, they will be moving in together in their new home.
