Man turns into Prince Charming to propose to his Sleeping Beauty
A real-life Prince Charming reworked his girlfriend’s favourite Disney movie for an epic marriage proposal which has now been viewed more than 5 million times.
Lee Loechler has raised the bar for anyone wanting to propose after recreating his girlfriend’s favourite Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty, to include the both of them.
In a video shared online, Mr Loechler can be seen sitting next to his girlfriend Sthuthi David in the theatre.
At the end of the movie, Sleeping Beauty starts to resemble Ms David, while the prince looks like Mr Loechler.
Then the prince pops out a box with an engagement ring in it.
As the film pauses, Mr Loechler takes a ring and turns to his girlfriend.
“I love you with my whole heart, including all of its ventricals, atriums, valves,” he says, pausing to explain to the audience that “she’s a cardiologist.”
He then asks her, “Sthuthi David, MD, will you live happily ever after with me?”
As she said yes, the crowd cheered and the movie song Once Upon A Dream started to play.
Mr Loechler said it took him six months to rework Sleeping Beauty for the proposal.
In sharing the video on Instagram, Loechler wrote, “The only thing better than seeing the smartest person I know completely dumbfounded was knowing we’d get to live happily ever after together.”
