Red Rock Resort Casino, Resort & Spa lit up a local couple’s engagement last night with a larger-than-life, bright-light proposal for all of Summerlin to see. The couple, entrepreneur Kyle Markman and TV personality Jillian Lopez said, “YES” under the backdrop of an over-sized “MARRY ME?” lighting configuration in the resort’s hotel tower windows.
Mr. Markman, who has been dating Ms. Lopez for over three years, chose Red Rock Resort as his proposal location because it is their “home away from home.” He used a ruse of going to the opening of a local drive-in movie theater as the excuse to get her out of the house. Once near Red Rock Resort, he blindfolded her, as to not ruin the surprise.
He then escorted her to a spot on the pool deck, removed the blindfold revealing the bold letters and knelt to one knee and popped the question. The future bride to be, overwhelmed and surprised, said “YES!” while fighting back tears. The elated couple popped a bottle of champagne and celebrated the momentous occasion.
“Red Rock is one of our favorite local’s casinos in town and we’ve spent many nights here seeing concerts, going to dinner and hanging poolside,” said Markman. “I’m so excited to marry my best friend and I’m beyond thankful to the Red Rock team for coordinating this huge, and amazing surprise.”
