23-year-old Joel Lynch is melting hearts everywhere after his “Beauty and the Beast” proposal went viral this week! He HAND MADE this dress, just like Belle wore for his now fiance Cara, who is obviously a huge fan of the movie.
So how did Joel pull this off? He’s not a fashion designer, but he found a pattern online for the dress and went to work “in a basement with a cheap sewing machine and a dream. And coffee. Lots of coffee.” His proposal didn’t stop with the dress, he got down on one knee in a library, with this song playing in the background!
