Man Proposes At LEGOLAND(R) California
Feb. 24, 2009
A Fort Collins couple made a romantic memory complete with a diamond ring, a
down-on-one-knee proposal and about 2 million tiny plastic bricks.
Troy Cobb and Lacey Williams were engaged Monday in Miniland Las Vegas at
LEGOLAND as part of a surprise trip to California to celebrate Valentines Day
and Williams birthday.
Cobb proposed to Williams with the help of a Lacey Will You Marry Me? sign
hand-crafted by one of the parks master model builders and displayed as a part
of The Strip LEGO site.
I wanted to do something special, Cobb said. And this idea just popped into
my head one day.
Unfortunately, Williams walked right past the sign, which was mounted on a mini
replica of Paris Eiffel Tower and decorated with two four-inch bride and groom
models of the couple, twice before Cobb got down on one knee.
There, true to the proposal theme, Cobb presented a pink sapphire and diamond
ring - in a LEGO box.
At first she was just stunned, Cobb said. But then she definitely said,
It took a month of advanced planned and prep work to get the sign completed and
mounted correctly, Cobb said. In fear that LEGOLAND would not finish the sign in
time, Cobb even constructed and shipped his own hand-crafted LEGO sign to the
park, but the professional sign was ultimately used.
The sign, which used red lettering on a white background, hung on The Strip of
Miniland Las Vegas, an architectural landmark built with 2 million plastic
bricks and 16,000 hours of creative artistry, according to a LEGOLAND news
Cobb and Lacey, who are both 28, have known each other since high school and
share a love for LEGOS.
Cobb is the greenhouse supervisor at Fort Collins Nursery, and Williams is a
student at CSU.
The newly engaged couple plan to top their wedding cake with miniature LEGO
figures of themselves.
If you are interested about rings looking like LEGO.
