KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A brick near Circle Park on the University of Tennessee campus is now the center of a love story. UT graduates Chase Houston and Elle Inman fell in love after meeting at a Vols basketball game three years ago.
 
"She's funny, smart, absolutely beautiful," Houston said.

"I would say that he definitely brings me out of my bubble. He makes me much more outgoing and makes everything exciting," Inman said.

When it came time to propose, Chase didn't disappoint.

"I wanted something that was permanent, that you could always come back to," he said.

After doing some research, he worked with UT's alumni office to have a brick placed at the base of the torchbearer that says "Marry me?" above Elle's initials. When the couple took a walk near Circle Park on May 16, Elle got the surprise of a lifetime.

"We walked up to the torch bearer and he was looking down at the ground. So I'm watching and I notice something and so we walk up to it," Elle said.

"But I tried to figure out what it says and I'm reading it and I think wait a minute that's my initials, that says will you marry me. As I'm figuring that out I turn around and he like drops down on one knee and it was perfect."

"She said yes," Houston said. 

The wedding is set for November 8th in Gatlinburg.
