Ron Tanner proposed to Rachel McQuaid Tanner on a beautiful day at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

The sun's rays cascaded onto vibrant cherry blossom trees as the couple weaved their way through the crowds of admirers.

When they arrived at the rose garden, Ron surprised Rachel with a pair of Minnie Mouse ears. He asked her to put them on and accompanied her with a matching Mickey pair.

“Five years ago, a Disney princess walked into my life,” Ron said when he got down on one knee.

It was the beginning of an exciting fairytale the pair would remember for the rest of their lives.
