When Blake asked Dana to babysit his golden retriever, Ollie, through the dog-sitting service Rover, neither expected a romance to grow. After some friendship and flirting, the two hit it off on a first date at Bohemian Bull. On a weekly Sunday morning walk with Ollie, Blake got down on one knee on Folly Beach, asking Dana to marry him. An intimate wedding was held at his parents’ home with Colonial Lake as a backdrop, where family and friends celebrated with live music and dinner from Lewis Barbecue.
