Justin Wilfon proposal: How the 2NEWS Today anchor popped the question to his girlfriend Laura Neal

TULSA - For any guy, one of the toughest parts about proposing is deciding how to do it.  You want it to be special and creative, but not corny.

Luckily, I think I found the perfect way to pop the question.

When my girlfriend Laura took me to an event at the Tulsa Girls Art School a few months back the idea dawned on me. This could be the place to do it.

TGAS has a special place in my girlfriend's heart. She's mentored several girls there and is involved with the program in other ways as well. Maybe the girls could help me ask the question!

So I called TGAS director, Matt Moffett, and was thrilled to hear that he loved the idea.

He created a fake event and invited Laura to stop by, telling her the girls were rehearsing for an upcoming event and wanted to know what she thought of their routine. Finally, a few weeks later the day arrived.

Luckily, Laura invited me along to the event so I didn't have to invite myself!

With my heart pounding, we walked into TGAS and sat down to watch the girls' routine. One by one they revealed a letter that each of them had painted on canvass. They spelled out the big question - WILL YOU MARRY ME? She was shocked! I got down on one knee, pulled the ring out of my pocket and put it on her finger. It fit! 


It really couldn't have gone any better.

A huge thank you to Matt Moffett, all the girls and everyone else at TGAS for making it an amazing moment.

And most of all, thank you to my amazing fiance. And yes, she's Laura Neal, an anchor on another station here in Tulsa. Even though she's the competition, I can't wait to marry her.
