We’re so excited to share Laura and Tyler’s engagement session from Taylor Jones Photography with you all today! These two met online and their story is one for the books. Their first date was axe throwing, and their proposal involved a cop, RTD, and a $90 citation for Laura.
We can’t wait to have these two back to the valley for their wedding this summer! Read more of their story below.
Tyler: “I decided to go back to the source of the place that we first met face to face on our first date: The Southmoore RTD light rail station. I wanted her to be forced to get off the train when she was least suspecting it and get off the train (against her wishes/unaware of my plans). I set it up with the RTD so that she would be approached by a train cop while on the train to what she thought would be a trivia night with her mother, and two close friends where she thought that I would meet them 3 stops north of the Southmoor station.
Instead, since each member of her party except her all qualified for senior citizen passes and I arranged with them that she wouldn’t have one when the officer asked her to present her paid fare/pass. When he asked she was left without one while all the others had theirs. She was mortified. She is not a rule breaker at all and would ALWAYS have a fare, but she had been set up. She was told that there is zero tolerance and she would receive a $90 citation and she could pay it or she would have to appear in court. Then he asked her to get off at the Southmoore station where I was waiting and told she would have to go buy a ticket before she could get back on the train.
She didn’t see me at first because she was so intent on righting the wrong, but when she saw me, I think she got the picture that she had been had. She said “yes” and then there was about 40-ish of our friends waiting a few hundred yards away at a Chili’s that I had assembled a small surprise party for her to commemorate the event and allow our friends who hadn’t met yet an opportunity to do so and to meet Laura’s mother Shirley who happened to be there to witness all of this, which for me made it all the more special.
I was going for a memorable moment. I am pretty certain she will not soon forget it, nor will anyone else that saw it. A small video made the news along with a couple of choice pictures along with a fun love story around Denver area news outlets over the course of the next week. We later learned it was “National Proposal Day” on March 20th as well as the first day of Spring so March 20, 2019 will not soon be forgotten.”
