Wedding Story

A “Dreams Do Come True” Engagement

We are in love. A ridiculous amount. We met through a friend, she gave me directions to her house and it pretty much snowballed after that (of course with the usual amount of lesbian drama in the beginning). We got engaged March 2008 in Disney World in the most romantic, magical, fairytale way imaginable. It was during a carriage ride, all of a sudden the driver turned around and said “S’cuse me milady, I think you lost your shoe”, then proceeds to put a pillow of flowers topped with a glass slipper in my lap. Before I can respond with the immediate reaction of “wtf” I notice Beth getting on her knees and the ring in the shoe…. and the rest was kind of a blur. Lots of crying, while on our way to keep our dinner reservations in Cinderella’s Castle, where Cinderella herself (wow!) congratulated us before I went upstairs to cry and snot into my pork medallions. Meanwhile, the Fairy Godmother and a couple mice start dancing and singing Bibbity Bobbity Boo and she also talks about how Dreams Do Come True (yes, they do!). As if all of this were not planned more perfectly, the Magic Kingdom fireworks start with Jiminy Cricket singing about Wishing Upon Stars and all your hearts desires will come true. It was the most emotional, magical, stardust and moonbeams moment of my life. Incredible, truly. Courtesy of the most thoughtful, (cheesily)romantic, caring and patient partner on this earth. And they lived happily ever after.
