Alex and David may have met on their high school track and field team but it wasn't until college that the two took a run at love. With a strong desire for adventure, the couple found themselves traveling and wandering the world together looking to "find the magic in all they discover." From traveling to Walt Disney World as kids to venturing to Disneyland Paris as a couple, these two have formed a special bond with Disney their entire lives. It has even become a huge part of their love story, having named their pet chameleon Pascal after Alex's favorite Disney movie, Tangled. So it only made sense for David to turn Alex's 23rd birthday into a Tangled inspired proposal. With friends and family gathered, Alex found her way down to the dock where David recreated the gondola scene and even had a live musician playing "I See the Light." David took Alex's hands, dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him. With happy tears flowing, she said, "of course!" But the magic didn't stop there, afterwards David had floating lanterns prepared to set off into the sky, making the night everything Alex could have ever wanted!
With a wedding inspired by Disney planned in October, the couple decided to continue on their magical adventure with engagement photos in the Magic Kingdom
. And of course, a few in the Tangled area of Fantasyland! This engagement story is truly a dream come true.
