Elly and Ian Get Engaged at Disneyland!!!

Snow White Well

The bridge over to Snow White’s Wishing Well and Grotto.

On a beautiful late spring day, Ian asked Elly to be his wife.

He chose to propose not on Main Street USA in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle, but in a place a little more out of the way:  Snow White’s Wishing Well.


Elly, will you marry me?




Sealed with a kiss!


The ring.

It’s such a pretty – and quiet – spot with the song “I’m Wishing” from the Snow White movie playing in the background.

♪♫♪ I’m wishing, I’m wishing, for the one I love.…….♪♫♪

We wish them every happiness and many, many happy years of marriage together.


Celebrating on their favorite ride.




Let the planning for a Disney wedding – and Disney honeymoon – begin!


Celebrating their engagement back in Colorado.
