She Was Dressed as Cinderella and Got Her Real-Life Fairytale Ending

How We Met

We met at a Halloween party on October 29th, 2011. We were both non drinkers and started up a conversation with each other. He was dressed as Indiana Jones and I was a bunny. He mentioned that he had skittles in his satchel and we laughed and shared the bag. We loved being two college kids at a party sharing candy and being sober. We talked all night and then he asked to take a picture with me and send it to me on his phone so I gave him my number. And the rest is history.

On October 29th, 2015, the 4 year anniversary of when we met, Chris decided to go to Disneyland dressed as Cinderella and Prince Charming for Halloween. Cinderella has always been my favorite princess so I was beyond excited! We are walking towards the castle to take a picture when Chris tells me that it’s 11:11 and I need to make my wish, a ritual we usually always partake in. I closed my eyes and made a wish. When I opened them, Chris pointed towards the castle where his brother, who was also dressed in costume, walking towards us with a real glass slipper on a purple pillow. He said to me “I’m here to present Cinderella with her glass slipper.”

I sat down on the bench when Chris grabbed the slipper and put it on my foot. It fit me perfectly. He said “happy anniversary babe.” And I was beyond thrilled to have a real glass slipper just like Cinderella.

But then, he stood me up and his brother turned the pillow over to reveal the ring he had been holding on the bottom the whole time. I was in complete shock and speechless. Chris grabbed the ring and got down on one knee. It’s safe to say all my dreams came true that day. I had never felt more like a princess and it was such a magical moment.

After the proposal, Chris pointed out my mom and dad walking towards me. Both mine and Chris families and our best friends surprised me at Disneyland. It was the best day of my life.
