Update: The beautiful little girl has been found! We have more on her down below! First – what a beautiful couple!! Wishing them a lifetime of love, joy and happiness!!!! 🙂
Here’s the backstory.
Olivia and Caleb Spark were married on Saturday.
They went to have their photos taken at Akron Falls Park when something amazing and beautiful happened. This post, from the groom’s mom, Angela Spark – says it all.
“I would like to share this story from yesterday in hopes of finding a woman and her daughter from Akron.
My son Caleb and his new bride, Olivia, stopped at Akron Falls park for photos after their wedding ceremony, about 4:00pm. While they were walking through the park, they heard a little voice yelling “Cinderella, wait!”. A little girl, about 4 years old, came running to Olivia with her arms opened wide. The little girl was autistic and was so overjoyed to be seeing “Cinderella”. She told Olivia she was beautiful and wanted to touch her dress. My son, and daughter in law and their wedding party were moved to tears by this little girl. Their photographer took photos of the little girl and they spent some time with her. Then Cinderella explained that they had to go because she had a ball to get to.
Olivia and Caleb would like to find this mother and her daughter so that they can give her some photos from yesterday for this little girl to keep.
Please share this with anyone you may know from Akron in hopes of finding her. Thank you.”
It didn’t take all that long for the little girl to be found. Folks just knew. They knew who it was when they read or heard about it.
Jessica Conley Lester told me it meant the world to her little girl, Layla. Layla she is 5 and loves, loves, loves those Disney Princesses. In fact, her mom tells me they are her favorite thing in the world.
Jessica said they were at the park watching her niece have her senior photo shoot when all of a sudden, “When Layla spotted the bride she thought she was Cinderella. She kept calling them Cinderella and Prince Charming. She even called a few of the bridesmaids Ariel and Belle. The bride was so amazing with her. She took the time out of what she was doing 2 different times to talk with Layla. And trust me that made her so happy. She watched them drive away and just kept saying bye Cinderella have fun at the ball.”
The act of kindness can certainly go a long way. For Jessica and adorable Layla it sure has, “I’ve teared up many times over the past day just thinking about it. It meant so much to me that she would do that.”
Jessica and Layla plan to have lunch with the couple when the photos come in. How amazing is that!
What a wonderful thing for this bride and groom to do – to be so kind and loving to a little girl they didn’t even know. I’m sure this is something sweet little Layla will remember for a very long time.
UPDATE: The bride has shared a few photos!!
