It's not every day you get to propose to your High School sweetheart. For the past six months I've been working with @kaylacoombs to animate @stutzd4 and myself into her favorite movie, Sleeping Beauty. The only thing better than seeing the smartest person I know completely dumbfounded was knowing we'd get to live happily ever after together. ?? Enjoy!
It's not every day you get to propose to your high school sweetheart—which is why filmmaker Lee Loechler made sure his marriage proposal was extra special.
Hearts are melting across social media after Loechler proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Sthuthi David, by reanimating the ending of her favorite film: Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty.
It took six months of work to animate the scene and arrange for the movie screening to take place. Loechler started by contacting the Coolidge Corner Theater in their hometown of Brookline, Massachusetts and asking if they could host a fake film screening for the proposal—and the theater was more than happy to accept.
After that, Loechler made a Reddit post asking for 20 strangers to attend a free screening of Sleeping Beauty so that David's closest friends and family could hide in the back of the theater and watch the proposal unfold without being recognized.
