She Was Playing Cinderella at a Birthday Party—Then Suddenly She Recognizes Prince Charming!

Every girl loves a good love story…I know I do! And when real life has the makings of a fairy tale? Well, that’s even better! That’s why when I saw this story posted on Amy’s Princess Parties Facebook page, I just had to share.

Ohio woman Amy Buchan Kavelaras runs a small business called Amy’s Princess Parties. If you’re in central Ohio and need Elsa, Anna, Cinderella, Belle, or Rapunzel to show up and make your daughter’s day, Amy’s your girl! On her Facebook page, Amy told the inspiring story of the day she headed out to make a girl’s day dressed as Cinderella—and found out it was all an elaborate ruse planned by her own personal Prince Charming, her boyfriend Nick, who was planning to ask her to be his wife! Check out the amazing story in Amy’s own words below!

I’M ENGAGED!!!!!! The most magical moment of my entire life happened last night!! 31 beautiful years have led up to this fairy tale experience….🙂
Engagement Story: I have a side “Princess Party” business (Amy’s Princess Parties) and 2 months ago a mom called me and booked me as Cinderella for her daughters 6th birthday party. She said she was the owner of a little restaurant called La Chatelaine(which was where Nick and I had our first date) and that she was going to throw a big party there for her little girl.

Last night I showed up to the restaurant decked out in my Princess attire and the owners little girl greeted me at the door in her Cinderella dress. She told me her birthday party was in the other room and escorted me to a side room….I pushed back the streamers and stepped into a room decked out in white Christmas lights…Beautiful music was playing and the floor had a red carpet lined with white rose petals and hundreds of little tea lights in the shape of a heart…At the end of the carpet was my boyfriend Nick dressed up as Prince Charming with a glass slipper in his hands…

I was shocked to see him, but then he started explaining to me that one year ago on Dec. 18th was the first day that he ever knew that I existed. It was on that day that we had our first interaction with one another. He then expressed to me his undying love and told me he wanted to make every one of my wildest wishes come true to give me the fairy tale I deserved…He then got down on one knee and presented me with my dream ring which he had set in a little cushion in the engraved glass slipper. I was shocked and in tears…

Afterwards he showed me that he had set up a timeline of the past year of our relationship through framed pictures in chronological order from our first date all the way to an empty frame at the end…He explained that the last empty frame (which was engraved with Nick and Amy and the date) was to fill in with a picture of our special engagement moment. He told me my parents had been in the room earlier that night to pray over him and the exact place that we were going to get engaged at, which also brought me to tears. I was speechless the whole time and bawling. I’m so thankful that I waited for God’s very best for my life….He has blessed me beyond imagine!!!!! Rom. 8:25

**If our love story has inspired you, please feel free to share it with others…🙂

I love what she has to say in her Facebook post about marriage: “Lastly, if there is one thing that Nick and I have learned about our love lives it is that God is faithful…He will bring you the perfect person right when you are ready…We pray you never give up hope, and never settle for less than GOD’S very best…:)”

Amen! Congratulations, Amy and Nick! May God bless with you with a lifetime of love and service to Him!
