Lacey and David met while attending a computer programming bootcamp inside American Tobacco. Bootcamp makes it sound kind of scary… like they had to do a lot of push-ups or else be forced to code an entire WordPress theme from scratch. But they made it through! And now are successful computer people typing numbers into the interwebs and making things happen (that’s how it works, right?). They’re getting married in Florida, where Lacey is originally from, but decided to return to the scene of the bootcamp to have their engagement pictures taken with us! They live in Durham where they hang out with their dogs and play a lot of Yoshi video games. David proposed by reprogramming the end of the world 1-1 map of Yoshi’s Island. I didn’t even know that you could reprogram a popular video game map to bend it to your will unless you were some kind of super computer hacker but apparently this is an actual thing. Lacey played the game, and at the end it spelled out “Will You Marry Me?” in coins. There she was presented with two tubes: the green ‘yes’ tube and the red ‘no’ tube. Lacey got confused at this last part and accidentally took the red tube where she fell into a pit of spikes. She must’ve eventually took the green tube because here they are in pictures being obviously engaged. Congratulations, Lacey and David!
