My family and I went to Disneyland recently for a Mother’s Day celebration. My boyfriend is in the Marine Corps and is stationed in California. His mother came with us and he met us at Disneyland.
While we were there I told him I wanted a picture of us in front of the castle. He is not usually a picture taker so I told I just wanted this one picture of us. When we finally decided to take the picture there he and his mom were, talking to one of the professional cameramen. I was confused because all I wanted was a quick picture so we could go on the rides. The professional camera guy told us “All right, we will take one normal picture and then another picture.” I was confused but when along with it.
The next thing I knew my boyfriend was getting down on one knee and proposing to me right in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle with our families there to see. I soon found out that was the real reason we had gone on the trip in the first place. I was so happy and true felt like a Disney Princess in that moment! And I was so glad both his mom and my family could be there for it!
