Scott and Sabrina met while they were on vacation when Scott invited her to play volleyball with him during their first meet. But, Sabrina outrightly declined it. They happened to cross paths later that night, following which they had a few drinks together and eventually paced their relationship and got married. They exchanged vows in 2009, and their first dance as husband and wife went viral.
"When we got married I knew the first dance would be a big thing, so a few months before the big day, right around Valentine's Day, I surprised her with some dance lessons," Scott conveyed in an HGTV profile.
"She didn't need them but I did, and she appreciated how hard I worked to try and master the dance," he said and added, "Little did we know at the time that the video of our wedding dance would end up on YouTube and get hundreds of thousands of views!"
Scott and Sabrina have two daughters. Sabrina gave birth to their eldest daughter, Myah, shortly after exchanging vows. Then, two years after her first parity, she gave birth to their second daughter, Layla.
