    LEGOLAND Marriage Proposal

     

    LEGOLAND California may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of Romance, but for Troy Cobb and Lacey Williams, a couple from Fort Collins, CO,  the theme Park will always hold a special place in their hearts.  Troy proposed to Lacey in the middle of Miniland Las Vegas today with a little help from a LEGO sign built by one of the Park's Master Model Builders.

     

    Maybe love really is blind - Lacey walked past the - "Lacey Will You Marry Me?" sign at the base of the Eiffel Tower and the miniature models of the couple dressed in wedding garb twice before Troy finally grabbed her hand and got down on one knee. Even the ring box was made of LEGO as Troy presented his bride-to-be with a pink sapphire and diamond ring.

     

     

    Troy has always been a huge fan of LEGO and knew Lacey was "the one" when he discovered she had her own treasure trove of brick. Troy and Lacey are both 28 years old and live in Fort Collins. Troy is the Greenhouse Supervisor at Fort Collins Nursery and Lacey is a student at Colorado State University while also working for her family's business "Imprints" a clothing printing and embroidery store. The two have known each other since high school and are in California for a surprise trip celebrating both Lacey's birthday and Valentine's Day. The couple plans to use the miniature LEGO versions of themselves as the cake topper at their wedding.

     

    Miniland Las Vegas is in the heart of LEGOLAND California and features the world-famous Strip including the Luxor Las Vegas, New York, New York Hotel and Casino, Excalibur, Mirage, Treasure Island, Tropicana, MGM Grand, Venetian, Stratosphere tower and two iconic structures of Paris Las Vegas, the balloon sign and the Eiffel Tower.  "The Strip" at LEGOLAND also features a miniature wedding chapel, monorails and real life sounds recorded in Las Vegas. The architectural landmark is built out of more than two-million bricks and represents more than sixteen-thousand hours of creative artistry.
