A little girl in New York mistook a bride for Cinderella and photos of the adorable encounter have since gone viral. Newlyweds Olivia and Caleb Spark were taking photos in Akron Falls Park after their wedding ceremony when 5-year-old Layla, who’s autistic, caught sight of the bride in her white dress.
Layla ran over to the newly weds with her arms open saying Cinderella, Cinderella! She kept referring to the couple as Cinderella and Prince Charming, she even called the bridesmaids Ariel and Belle. Layla, who loves princesses, told Olivia she was beautiful and wanted to touch her dress.
The wedding photographer, Nicole Wickins, captured the moment between Layla and the “princess.” Saying “I was really caught off guard because there’s a little girl that none of us knew, so I wasn’t sure if I should take pictures. But it kind of just felt like the thing to do,”.
The bride said she was “flattered” and that the encounter made her day “absolutely more amazing than what it already was.”
Sometimes it’s the little things in life that mean the most to us – and for Roy Palmer, it’s dancing and going for walks on the beach. That’s because he spent ten years in a wheelchair due to his multiple sclerosis.
Then in 2017, he heard about an experimental stem cell therapy called HSCT. Though the treatment has had miraculous results among other disabled patients, it is still a risky procedure that doesn’t always work for some people. Regardless, the 49-year-old dad from Gloucester, England visited his doctor and begged for the treatment.
After undergoing the procedure, Palmer knew that it had started to work when he suddenly felt a cramp in his leg; it was the first time that he had felt anything in his disabled limbs in 10 years, and the sensation caused him to burst into happy tears.
Now that he has regained control of his legs once more, Palmer loves to dance with his wife and inspire others who may have lost hope in their physical abilities.
