Beyond all question, our weakness for hardly any type of marriage proposal—however watching U.S. Army cadet Michael Quintana Jr. propose to his high school sweetheart, Shannon Padfield, at Disneyland is almost too much to handle.
Quintana and Padfield have shared four wonderful years together filled with many Disneyland dates and countless hours watching classic Disney movies.
“Disney has always been a big part of my life,” Michael told the DisneyExaminer. “And when I met Shannon, I knew I found my best friend [and] the love of my life.”
When Michael was away for training, he couldn’t wait to come home to ask Shannon to marry him. And as for the engagement spot? There was no other option than the Happiest Place on Earth during its 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration! Because of a little teamwork from the DisneyExaminer and RobbinsBrothers, Michael pulled off the proposal he’d always dreamed of.
Considering they were only gathered at the amusement park for a family visit, the Quintana family and Shannon received the most magical surprise: Michael’s homecoming and a proposal!
Their full Disneyland proposal’s below—whereas just as a warning, you probably need a few tissues!
