Even when they grow up, some girls still sometimes daydream about being princesses and having perfect fairytale weddings. Well, one lucky gal, Sthuthi David, is on her way to the wedding of her dreams after an incredibly romantic and creative (and slightly geeky) proposal from her boyfriend, Lee Loechler. Hold on to your seats because this is amazing.

Lee proposed to his GF Sthuthi in a movie theater after spending the last half-a-year animating them both into her favorite movie ‘Sleeping Beauty.’ The scene is about Prince Lee proposing to Princess Sthuthi.

“It’s not every day you get to propose to your high school sweetheart,” that’s what Lee said when he got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life. She said yes! And the video of the proposal went viral on the net with over 1.1 million views and counting. Scroll down for Bored Panda’s interview with Lee.

I don’t know where that idea came from, but it felt fun and magical, and it played into my skill set as a filmmaker. He didn’t think it was right for him, so I filed it away for later use.”

“When things started getting serious with Sthuthi, I started thinking about how I might propose. I still thought that idea had potential, but her favorite movie was animated. And my experience was all in live-action. I know some After Effects, but I am by no means an animator, let alone capable of generating something that would hold up side-by-side with Disney. But, on a whim, I scrubbed through Sleeping Beauty and noted that in the climactic scene there was very little movement. Maybe, if it’s mostly static, I can still pull this off. I went on Instagram and started following various Disney art hashtags, hoping to find an illustrator who was up to the task. It wasn’t until I stumbled on Kayla’s work that the first inkling set in that “this might be possible after all…”
