A young girl mistook a bride having a photoshoot as a fairytale princess – and the woman happily plays along, giving the girl a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience! Isn’t that sweet?
Shandace Robertson was with her husband Scott, having their wedding photos taken in the streets of Seattle, just outside Hotel Ballard, in the state of Washington, USA. Suddenly, a 2-year-old girl smiled at her so happily, thinking she just met a princess.
“This young mother and her young child happened to be walking by, and my wife and this little girl caught each others’ gaze, smiled, and started interacting. My wife loves kids, so she saw this cute little girl, and this cute little girl saw my beautiful wife,” shared Scott.
They would soon learn that the little girl thought she is the woman from the cover of her favorite book, “The Woman in White” by Wilkie Collins. The woman wearing a white gown in that photo wasn’t actually a princess but the toddler thought she’s one – and when she met Shandace, she thought the bride in white is the same woman as the one on the book cover!
The girl loved the book so much and would pretend to read her “princess book”. She also carries the book around. Thus, she had it on the day she met a “real princess” outside Ballard.
“She showed me the book and was like, ‘Look, there she is!’ She was like, ‘There’s a princess!’ and we talked about how she was probably the Princess of Ballard, and then we really just stared at her in awe,” the girl’s mom narrated.
The girl grew more excited when Shandace walked towards them. Still in awe of the “princess”, the little girl happily smiled as the bride picked her up. After learning that she’s a “princess” to this girl, Shandace happily gave the kid one rose from her bouquet, making the girl even happier. What a beautiful way to make this little girl’s day!
Wearing a Wedding Gown with a Different Color
White has long been the traditional dress color for the bride as it symbolizes purity, but modern brides have worn gowns of different colors – with some even choosing bright red or even black! Different colors might have different meanings but many modern brides don’t care about tradition as they choose something that makes them happy.
