After years of seeing her son searching for love, Brook Feerick decided to take action. Anyone who knows Brook knows she makes friends wherever she goes, including Orange Theory Fitness. One fateful day in May, Brook approached her favorite Orange Theory gym buddy, Emma, and like all 21st century set-ups, DM'd her a picture of Thomas and asked if she would be interested. Emma, incredibly, said yes and Brook gave Thomas Emma's number. After a week or so of texting, somehow, someway, Emma agreed to meet Thomas for their first date. What started with pizza and cocktails, turned into country concerts and sunset walks along the beach which, in turn, ended in true love. Then, on October 22, 2022, Thomas surprised Emma on the beach, dropped to one knee, and popped the question. Emma said yes and the rest is history.
