Talk about a fairy tale wedding engagement from one boyfriend in central Iowa.

Joel Lynch, a 23-year-old graduate student at Iowa State University, brought his girlfriend Cara Szymanski's dreams to life last weekend when she became a princess.

The couple first met when they were members of a bridal party for a wedding. Over time, Lynch discovered that Szymanski, 24, of River Falls, Wisc., grew up admiring Belle from "Beauty and the Beast." So when it came to his proposal, he wanted to bring his "best friend and partner in crime's" favorite scene from the movie to life.

"I decided to make her the dress to coincide with my proposal," Lunch said in an Imgur gallery post, which has more than 640,000 favorites since it was posted on Monday.

“At first I was like, ‘I’ll just buy one, but then I realized it should be a labor of love,” he told ABC News.

But get this: Lynch told The Huffington Post that he had no sewing experience whatsoever.

He began making the silky yellow dress with a cheap sewing machine and lots of coffee in October 2016. When the two were together in Ames, he was able to hide it in a closet or in the basement.

He spent as many as 14 hours some days working on it, according to WHO-TV, and had finished it last weekend — an hour before Szymanski arrived to visit him from Wisconsin.

On Jan. 14 — the day of the proposal — the couple wandered around the Iowa State Parks Library Periodical Room looking at books. Lynch's sister, Leah, set the gown on a dress form in a nearby room.

And when Lynch opened the door to where the dress was standing, Szymanski "burst into tears."

"After I helped her get it on, I told her to wait for the music to start," Lynch told The Huffington Post.

That's when "Tale As Old As Time" began to play and the two danced, surrounded in a room full of journals, magazines and scholarly articles.

As for the big moment? Lynch dropped down on one knee, and Szymanski said "yes."

There's no doubt that this couple deserves a "happily ever after" ending following their fairy tale proposal.

“It was a beautiful moment and a beautiful memory and I look forward to every moment I share with him,” Szymanski told ABC News. “One day, hopefully our daughter will be able to dance with Joel in the dress.”
