Vegas was the destination.
Tyler was heading there with some buddies from work and Christina was going to a Britney Spears concert with girlfriends. So it seemed unlikely that either would meet “the one” on the Southwest flight departing from PHX’s Sky Harbor International Airport. They bumped into each other at the ticket gate while scrambling to check in their bags and had a short conversation.
When Tyler walked on the flight and saw that Christina had saved him a seat, well, he was elated – who cared about his buddies! He was going to spend all weekend with them, but this beauty (a former Fiesta Bowl Princess, Miss Arizona USA finalist, and model), well the 40 minute flight seemed like 40 seconds and he couldn’t get enough of her. The two exchanged phone numbers and Tyler couldn’t keep his mind off her all weekend. Christina swears after that conversation, she knew Tyler encompassed all that she ever imagined since she was a little girl. He was smart, funny, good looking and they saw eye to eye on moral values and beliefs, he was the one.
11 months later, Tyler took the day off of work on the Friday of Valentine’s Day weekend to prepare for the proposal. He spent the day staging the house with white tablecloths, dozens of candles, and fresh roses so the house would be perfectly romantic when Christina came home from work. Christina expected nothing more than just a lovely Valentine’s Day dinner, and after enjoying the salmon dinner that Tyler had successfully cooked, despite his lack of skill in cooking, he told Christina to reach under her chair. Taped under her seat, was a box with the ring. As she discovered it, a look of confusion, then surprise came across her face as Tyler rushed to her side on bended knee, asking her to be his wife.
Christina, you are drop. dead. gorgeous. Tyler, you are a smart man. I know this because you chose to make this beauty your wife. Happy planning you two and thank you for allowing me to capture your love.
