This Real-Life Disney Proposal Will Give You Goosebumps
Disney is ON FIRE. With their recent announcement that Netflix will become their official streaming partner, we were all geared up for the Disney version of Netflix + Chill. Seeing stars like Blake Lively rock her Disney-inspired look at Cannes def could be used as wedding dress fodder, but one heart-of-gold boyfriend in London, England, managed to propose to his Disney-obsessed girlfriend in the most incredible way.
Art Director and designer Jason Shoffman took months to plan out his elaborate Disney proposal. First, he started by amassing a huge collection of prints and Disney animation cells — the individual pictures that add together to create an animated film — on eBay. Then, he rented a gallery space and hung the images. Using hired actors, the gallery’s staff and his own sister, Shoffman then planned for his sister to take girlfriend Simone to the “Disney Art Exhibit.”
Once they’d seen the main room, Simone headed down to see special “one-off” pieces, which is where her surprise was waiting. Shoffman painstakingly recreated Disney style movie posters outlining their romance, making his soon-to-be fiancée a real-life Disney Princess.
Everything about this proposal is so perfect. It’s amazing to see how much Jason loves his bride-to-be and how much work he put into his one-of-a-kind proposal. Hopefully, we’ll be able to see if they follow this up with a Disney-themed wedding, and it’s exciting to know that there are Prince Charmings everywhere.
