Filmmaker Lee Loechler collaborated with an Australian Illustrator to pull off the most romantic proposal to his high school sweetheart.
Lee organised a fake screening of his medical resident girlfriend, Sthuthi David’s, favourite Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty.
“It’s not every day you get to propose to your High School sweetheart,” Loechler wrote on Instagram. “The only thing better than seeing the smartest person I know completely dumbfounded was knowing we’d get to live happily ever after together.”

It’s not every day you get to propose to your High School sweetheart. For the past six months I’ve been working with @kaylacoombs to animate @stutzd4 and myself into her favorite movie, Sleeping Beauty. The only thing better than seeing the smartest person I know completely dumbfounded was knowing we’d get to live happily ever after together. ❤️ Enjoy!
Loechler told CNN that he initially thought of the proposal idea when he was talking to another friend about his friend’s proposal.
“A lot of illustrators said no, that it was too big, or they had too long of a wait list, or that they had too much going on already,” Loechler said.
That’s when he found illustrator Kayla Coombs on Instagram. The two talked in April 2019 and instantly she was fully on board.
The proposal began during a scene in Sleeping Beauty where Prince Phillip wakes Princess Aurora with a kiss… Check out the epic fairytale proposal above!
“I love you with my whole heart, including all of its ventricles, atriums, valves,” Loechler said in the video, before clarifying, “she’s a cardiologist,” to those who might not know.
