5 Year Old Girl Mistakes Bride For Cinderella
A bride’s wedding day is usually a dream come true. From the perfect gown and ceremony to the incredible photos of the happy couple, that day is one that will never be forgotten. But what happens when a bride’s perfect day makes someone else’s dream come true? That is exactly what happened to 5 year old Layla Lester when she met Cinderella.
Layla, and her mother Jessica, were at the Akron Falls Park in Akron, NY when the little girl spotted a princess. “She just goes running over, arms wide open, “Cinderella, Cinderella!”‘ her mom recalled.
Cinderella actually turned out to be Olivia Spark, a bride that just had the wedding of her dreams. She and her new husband were having their post nuptial photos taken at the park. Their photographer Nicole Wickins was moved to capture this incredible moment.
“I was really caught off guard because there’s a little girl that none of us had known, so I wasn’t sure if I should take pictures,” Wickins said, “But it kind of just felt like the thing to do.”
Layla Lester has autism which can make interactions with strangers difficult. But she loves Disney princesses!
“When she sees a princess, she’s going to love them because she loves princesses,” mom said. “She was just so sweet with her and just kept talking to her and asking her questions,” Lester added. “Layla loved her and she fell in love so fast.”
Olivia Spark kept the magic alive for little Layla. “I was flattered,” she said. “I was like in tears that she thought I was a princess, and it just made my day absolutely more amazing than what it already was.”
Spark told Layla that they were headed to the ball.
Layla was able to meet back up with Olivia, who she still calls Cinderella, a few days later. Spark even brought her biggest fan a few gifts. “She is the epitome of what a real life princess would be,” Jessica Lester said about Spark. “She’s kind and she’s sweet and she went out of her way to be nice to Layla.”
Dreams really do come true!
