Forget about the Beauty and the Beast movie. This wedding proposal brought the classic story to life, and it includes a jaw-dropping, yellow ball gown, too. Imgur user Jel2930 surprised his girlfriend with a fairy-tale proposal, and the sweet pictures will melt your heart. “Cara grew up admiring Belle from Beauty and the Beast,” Joel explained in an image’s caption. So, he decided to turn her into her favorite childhood princess for an epic proposal.
First, he made sure she had the perfect dress. Instead of shopping around, Joel created a custom gown for Cara. “Sewing? Easy. Sewing well? Not so much,” he wrote in the image’s caption. With the help of a cheap sewing machine and lots of coffee, he was able to craft up a dress with a ruffled skirt that rivaled Belle’s glamorous look.

Joel also nailed the location. He popped the question in the periodical room at the Iowa State University Parks Library. “She’s an aspiring librarian,” Joel explained in the comments. “She mentioned she wanted to check out some books that evening.” He took her to the library, but Cara had no idea that she’d also be leaving with a stunning engagement ring. Check out the Beauty and the Beast proposal below.
