I’m going to go ahead and assume that many brides-to-be have seen the movie Dirty Dancing (maybe even a handful of their grooms have too!). After all, who isn’t a sucker for classic love stories? While couple Tiara and Torie were amidst a dreamy, romantic setting, in an open field next to Relics in Mequon – they even used many of their props, they decided to reenact the famous lift from Dirty Dancing, as a part of their engagement photos.
“I leaped into Torie’s arms before he was ready,” Tiara said. “and nailed him right in the face!” Still, the two laughed it off and continued their beautiful shoot.
The couple enjoys ice cream dates and playing with their dog, Ralphie. While Tiara is into running more than Torie is, together they ran the 2012 Rock N’ Roll Vegas Half Marathon. After the race finished in front of the Ballagio Hotel, Torie pulled Tiara away to “take a picture”. Then he proposed, in front of the Bellagio fountains just as the fountain show began.
“After he proposed he told me to take a look around and through the bright lights of the Vegas strip stood both of our families and closest friends,” Tiara said.
From there, Torie surprised Tiara yet again with a beautiful dress waiting for her at the hotel, before a limo picked everyone up to go to their favorite Vegas restaurant.
Tiara and Torie are getting married at The Pritzlaff this coming November, using vendors Sound by Design, Front Room Photography, One Fine Day Productions, Relics Vintage Rentals, Jaxie and Miss Ruby Bridal Boutique.
