Who said that love at first sight is only the stuff of fairytales? Yalonda and Kayla Solseng took that happily ever after dream right out of the pages of a storybook and into IRL — princess dresses, glass slippers, and all! For their engagement photos back in June, Yalonda and Kayla donned Disney princess dresses for a fairytale-inspired shoot, putting their own spin on the storybook tales.

Once upon a time, two lovely ladies bonded over their love of the ABC hit Once Upon a Time and fell head-over-heels in love. “That show rewrites fairytales and this was our modern-day fairytale,” Kayla explained to The Huffington Post. That fairytale began two and a half years ago, when Yalonda and Kayla met on Plenty of Fish. “Our connection was like none other,” Kayla said. After the pair first met in person in March of 2014, they became instantly inseparable. “We couldn’t get enough of each other!” she continued.

After nine months of dating, Yalonda proposed with a custom storybook that she had written and illustrated, depicting their own love story. “At the end I asked Kayla, ‘Will you be my happily ever after?'” remembers Yalonda. And what’s a happily ever without some princess ballgowns?

After writing their own fairytale, this couple put a modern-day spin on two of the classics, dressing up as Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella for their engagement shoot with photographer Taylor Snyder. The couple headed to Minnesota’s Romantic Moon Events Center in their gorgeous gowns, where they lived out their fairytale fantasy, frolicking in the fields.

Their fairytale came full circle when Yalonda and Kayla tied the knot earlier this month at the same romantic outdoor venue. The coolest part of this love story? The brides hope that it inspires other LGBT couples to live out their own version of happily ever after, too. “Kids want to be the characters they grow up with but when none of the characters represent you, then you feel alone,” said Yalonda. “I want our photos to be shown to kids and families as a way of saying it’s okay to be who you are. It’s okay to be with the person you love.”
