Kendall Longacre just thought she was going to the Triple Door to see Matt Wertz, but her boyfriend Cody Sadler had bigger plans.
‘I bought the ring at the beginning of April,’ Sadler told me by email. ‘I had two different ideas that didn’t pan out: We had a family trip planned to Southern California at the end of April with both our moms and our daughter and I debated finding an opportunity to propose down there but was apprehensive about traveling with the ring and either having the surprise ruined by airport security or having the ring lost or stolen in my luggage. I also reached out to Matt Wertz’s Facebook page, hoping he could, during the show, throw me the opportunity to propose.’
Wentz didn’t respond to the Seattleite, but no matter: third idea’s a charm.
Sadler had a few connections to Triple Door staff, and they allowed him the opportunity to ask this grand question in a grand way.
Our groom-to-be let his girlfriend of four years into the venue through the back to avoid the front of the theater; they then went out front just before showtime to grab a keepsake photo underneath the marquee—ostensibly just to remember the pop singer’s appearance and their fun date night.
As the conveniently placed valet guy captured the moment, Longacre was oblivious to the fact that the club’s sign was announcing more than the evening’s bill. Sadler handed the camera to her, ostensibly to show her how great the shot was, and her eyes traveled to the words above their heads.
She said yes.
The couple has yet to set a date but they’re looking at June 2013.
