Every little girl has admired a female heroine or character at some point in their life. Nowadays, little girls are dead crazy over Disney princesses and fairy tale princesses. You’d expect a little girl to meet their idol princesses in Disneyland or some other man-made magical place – not in the middle of the street.
Here’s the story from a then groom-to-be, Scott Robertson, that happened during his wedding day. Scott and his wife were in the streets of Seattle doing their wedding photo shoot when this little girl walked by with awe written all over her face.
When I was a kid, I wasn’t into princesses and girly things. I did admire a certain actress and enjoyed all of her movies. I had the opportunity of randomly meeting her and I can still remember the awe I was feeling. I thought by dreams came true.
I take it that is how this little girl felt when she saw Robertson’s wife walking in the street. She was dressed like a princess very similar to the princess in the book she was holding. The Woman in White is a popular nineteenth century novel by Wilke Collins and it’s a story of secrets, mistaken identities, amnesia and a whole lot of mystery.
Since the couple were in the middle of their shoot, the photographer was able to capture the wonderful moment between Robertson’s wife and the little girl.
The joy was written all over her face and the newly weds were more than happy to stop their shoot and let the little girl indulge in a few minutes of absolute wonder. The bride was even kind enough to pick the little girl up, put her on her waist and give her a flower out of her wedding bouquet.
To this, the little girl’s mom tells Robertson, “Your wife is forever the Princess of Ballard to her.”
Surely this encounter will prove to be an inspiring memory to the little girl that when she grows up, she will believe that dreams do come true.
