Blake’s proposal to Melanie & this is what he wrote:

On December 23rd i surprised the love of my life by building the happiest place on earth (Disneyland_Mainstreet USA) in my backyard so i could propose to her. She had no clue this was happening.

I spent 3 months making this happen, here were some of the final Stats:

* In the end it was a 18 gigabyte image to print composed of over 356 separate photos stitched together by hand in photo shop. 
* I Printed over 640 Feet of Images to be pasted onto the framed structures
* The Set was built 8 feet tall and 30 feet long (per side) and the Castle at the end of Main street Stood 12 feet wide and 10 feet high
* 4 Gallons of Black paint were used to cover every inch so at night the illusion would look as though you were fully at Disneyland
* 29 Strands of Christmas Lights were linked to 3 power sources which then ran to one master “On switch” so i could turn everything on at one time to reveal
* 2,900 holes were drilled in the pictures and each had a Christmas light that stuck through the picture
* Tinkerbell Came down to deliver the ring on a homemade invisible zip line 
* I spend 2 months designing the ring in a 3d modeling software and molded into wax and then gold
* Lots of injuries, lies, and trickery were used to pull this entire thing off

But in the end it was all worth it.

WHOA, DUDE; WHOA!!!

pretty damn dope.

sword in the stone, disney (1963)

Or, if there were a sympathy in choice,
War, death, or sickness did lay siege to it,
Making it momentany as a sound,
Swift as a shadow, short as any dream,
Brief as the lightning in the collied night,
That, in a spleen, unfolds both heaven and earth;
And ere a man hath power to say “Behold!”
The jaws of darkness do devour it up:
So quick bright things come to confusion.

and at last i see the lightand it’s like the fog has liftedand at last i see the lightand it’s like the sky is newand it’s warm and real and brightand the world has somehow shifted
all at once, everything is differentnow that i see you 
i see the light from tangled
such stuff as dreams are made on

and at last i see the light
and it’s like the fog has lifted
and at last i see the light
and it’s like the sky is new
and it’s warm and real and bright
and the world has somehow shifted

all at once, everything is different
now that i see you 

i see the light from tangled

such stuff as dreams are made on
