Redditor u/yourstruelee pulled out all the stops to make sure he could surprise his girlfriend with the proposal for the ages. This guy spent six months animating him and his girlfriend into her favorite Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty. He even enlisted the help of some fellow redditors, as well as a number of their close family and friends, to make sure this proposal went off without a hitch. He even timed the catching of the ring with the animation, talk about true dedication.
What Have We Here
High school sweethearts Lee Loechler and Stulthi David had been together for over a decade. Lee, a filmmaker, and Sthuthi, a cardiologist, had gone to the local theater to watch her favorite movie, Sleeping Beauty. But little did she know this would be a special version.
This Looks Odd
Working with Australian illustrator Kayla Coombs, Lee completely refurbished the classic Disney tale with his own flair, but this wasn't the only thing he had to figure out.
This Isn't The Version I Remember
He enlisted the help of social media to make sure the proposal was truly special, asking Reddit on a local thread for people to come and fill the theater, and help them capture and be part of their magical moment.
They Seem Familiar....
As the scene goes on, Sthuthi starts to suspect that Lee might have something to do with his, as the resemblance is "uncanny".
Look At That Rock
The biggest shock is when the ring pops up on the screen, and Sthuthi starts to wonder what could possibly be going on here. This was when Lee had a perfectly timed trick to play.
That Is Not What She Saw Coming
The perfectly timed shot with the animation coinciding with the toss of the ring boss must have been practiced to perfection, but in the moment it capped off a truly special moment for the shocked Sthuthi and exstatic Lee.
It's Been a Long Time Coming
Lee is in no rush to get this done, clearly having wanted this moment for a good long time. Sthuthi was still stunned at this point at what was going on.
Ever The Jokester
The moment not lost on him, nor the crowd around them, Lee also wanted to break the crazy moment with some comic relief, and added some humor to the animation, as if he is taking too much time to get through the proposal.
They're All In On It
Sthuthi, still shocked, looks around bewildered, embaressed this is happening in front of all these random people. Only to realize, Lee had another surprise for her. Not only did a bunch of people from Reddit come to make the day that much more special, interspersed in the random people were their close family and friends.
Lee even tailored the proposal to appreciate Sthuthi's profession as a cardiologist, garnering plenty of laughs from the crowd as he explained to them what she did.
She Said Yes!
