A recent marriage proposal has made us believe that fairytales can really come true. 

Lee Loechler proved himself to be the modern-day prince as he planned to ask his girlfriend to spend forever with him in a way that would melt any heart who grew up watching Disney. Sthuthi David has always loved Sleeping Beauty, so when her high school sweetheart decided to pop the question, he did it in a way that happened “once upon a dream.” 

Loechler, who is a filmmaker, spent 6 months working with an animator to make Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip look like the couple and illustrate a scene that saw the prince propose after he woke up the sleeping beauty. Loechler had also filled the audience with the couple’s friends and family (as well as a few random Reddit users so it wouldn’t be too obvious). 

“The only thing better than seeing the smartest person I know completely dumbfounded was knowing we’d get to live happily ever after together,” said the real-life prince. 

Now that’s what we call a fairytale ending!
