We first told you about the internet search that left so many of us saying, “Awwwwww.”  Once upon a time, there was beautiful bride who stopped during her wedding photo shoot to talk to and spend time with a beautiful little girl.

The little girl, 5-year-old, Layla, moved the bride and groom – so much so they began a social media campaign to find her.

The photographer taking Olivia and Caleb Spark’s wedding photos just happened to capture some with Layla and the couple wanted to find her and share those special pictures.

It didn’t take long.

Jessica Conley Lester told me it meant the world to her little girl, Layla. Layla is 5, has autism, and just so happens to love, love, love 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!

We are so excited to share the photos that Olivia sent to us! Talk about a special moment! They are just the proofs – but they are proof indeed that kindness can change the world!
