Sthuthi David just wanted one thing: a nice evening at the movies with her boyfriend to watch her favorite movie and Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty. Little did she know what her boyfriend, Lee Loechler, had something else in store for her.

While I, admittedly, set high expectations with my Gentleman’s Guide to Proposing at Disney World, our boy, Lee beats everything. AND HE DIDN’T EVEN SET FOOT IN A DISNEY PARK! This guy spent six months hacking and altering the iconic kiss scene in Sleeping Beautyyou know, the one where Phillip makes it to Aurora’s tower and kisses her and she wakes from her eternal sleep–to appear as if Sthuthi was Aurora and he was Prince Phillip.

But most people would expect the animation and the actual scenes to mimic each other, right? Wrong. Check this out:

  • Lee set up the new and improved animation so that it appeared that animated Lee on the screen tossed the ring to real-life Lee.
  • Real-Life Lee “caught” the ring, and got down on one knee.
  • He starts off by saying, “It’s not every day you get to propose to your highschool sweetheart. So I just wanna take my time.”
  • And he took his time. But the best part was that he arrange the animation to have the two characters watch the proposal go on.
  • On top of this, she is a cardiologist. So, he added some verbiage like “I love you with all my heart, including all of its ventricles, atriums, and valves.”
  • He ended, appropriately with “will you live happily ever after with me?”
  • SPOILER ALERT: She said yes.

Don’t believe me? Well, watch the whole proposal for yourself right here:

Of course, during the setup, the girl looks over at the guy with that face all girls make that says–in G-rated terms–“what are you doing? I know you’re behind this.” She knows something up. But she couldn’t be happier with the result. When she said yes, the movie cut to the ending. The entire theatre, whom Lee explains was in on it from the beginning, applauded the newly engaged couple. We hope they truly live happily ever after.
