When the dating game gets you down, there are all sorts of ways you can find your happily ever after.
You can wish on a star for the man of your dreams, start kissing frogs in search of Prince Charming or pray your fairy godmother appears out of nowhere and turns a pumpkin into the perfect royal husband.
However, if you're not down to contract some weird swamp disease or wait around forever for your fairy godmother, you can just put on your big-girl princess dress and create your own damn happiness.
Don't believe me? Just ask Brooke Lowry.
Brooke Lowry broke up with her fiancé just three weeks before she was supposed to have a "Happily Ever After" engagement photo shoot in Disneyland.
Since this former Disney employee already had the outfits, makeup artist and photographer all set for the big day, the newly single gal decided to go ahead with the shoot sans Prince Charming.
If you ask me, this was a pretty solid decision on Lowry's part since there's basically no better place to get over your ex than "The Happiest Place on Earth."
Plus, I'm pretty sure it's downright impossible to be sad while galavanting around this magical kingdom in a princess costume.
On the day of the shoot, Drexelle Park of D. Park Photography followed Lowry around this fairytale land and captured a variety of photos fit for a princess.
Lowry told Huffington Post, "It was a bittersweet day. What were supposed to be engagement photos turned out to be a solo session because of unforeseen circumstances."
"The shoot was already confirmed past cancellation, and the dresses carefully chosen and tailored, so I decided to show up anyways hoping to one day look back on the pictures knowing they marked the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new adventure."
Everyone involved in the shoot did their best to make Lowry feel like a true princess that day. One of the park employees even gave Lowry a private tour of the Royal Hall.
According to Lowry, "I felt uneasy, but I also felt empowered. I thought of the Disney Princess commercial that used the quote, 'I am brave even when I am scared.' I wanted to document this massive transition in my life. It was definitely a milestone, just not the one I thought it was going to be."
This enchanting "Once Upon A Time" shoot symbolized the beginning of a new chapter for this inspiring princess.
Lowry told Huffington Post, "After wrapping up the shoot at Disneyland and watching the fireworks over the castle on my own, I left feeling like anything was possible. All I can do is have courage, be kind, let go of the past, work hard, dream big, and keep believing."
Yep, this princess certainly serves as living proof you don't need a man to make all of your dreams come true.
