Meet With Grace & Love couple, Mary & Austin. They are set to be married this September at the Inn at Park Winters and we cannot wait to plan their wedding. It’s going to be filled with just as much magic as their love story.

Mary & Austin got engaged at the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland! With the help of some Disney magic, Austin was able to surprise Mary by popping the question in front of the castle like every little girl dreams of.

The morning of the engagement Austin asked Mary if they could stop by Sleeping Beauty’s castle for a photo. When the park opened, the two went straight to the castle to take the photo. Once there, Austin was whispering his plan to propose with the Disney photographer. The photographer then turned and walked up to Mary and shared that her camera was broken and the two would have to come back later for a photo.

Not much to Mary’s dismay, she was excited to get on with her Disney birthday trip and ride the rides–completely forgetting about the photo Austin so badly needed in front of the castle. Later that morning, Austin asked Mary for the second time if they could back to get a photo with the castle.

The two went back to the castle to meet the same photographer from that morning and when Mary turned to pose for the camera, Austin was down on one knee with ring box. The entire proposal was caught on camera. Little did Mary know it wasn’t just a photo by the castle, but the moment she’d been dreaming of for a very long time.

Disneyland is such a special place for Mary & Austin. Both Disney lovers and pass holders they frequent the park often. They celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and just about anything else they can at Disneyland. So it only made sense for them to get engaged there.

As they started to wedding plan and find a wedding photographer, Chris from Chris Howard Imagery, suggested they do their engagement photos at the park and it resulted in PURE MAGIC! You can feel their love in the photos and see that special Disney magic that surrounds them.
