BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

It is a wedding proposal that fairy tales are made of and Cinderella was even there to witness it all unfold. 

During a visit to Walt Disney World in Orlando with her boyfriend this week, WAFB reporter Carmen Farrish was on a mission to see as many Disney characters as she could find. 

As the two stopped for a photo with Cinderella, Carmen’s boyfriend Kenyatta Poe got down on one knee and asked Carmen to marry him. 

A stunned Carmen made sure she heard him right before saying “yes” and giving Kenyatta a huge hug. He then put a beautiful diamond ring on her finger. 

“I wasn’t quite sure I had heard him right,” a beaming Carmen told co-workers Friday morning. “It was like he was talking in slow motion.” 

Carmen, a native of Mississippi, joined the WAFB News team last January.

    WAFB ARCHIVES: Former Mississippi sharecropping family, all college graduates, reunite for Thanksgiving meal

    Thanksgiving is about sharing, so we want to share something with you. In 1978, CBS news' "On The Road" segment was hosted by Charles Kuralt. He found a family of 11 in Prairie, Mississippi, all coming home for Thanksgiving. All nine children had memories of a sharecropper's cabin and nothing to wear and nothing to eat. All nine are college graduates.
