Little girl mistakes bride for Cinderella

A photo of a little girl with a bride whom she mistook as Cinderella has gone viral, and now the internet wants to send her to Disney World to meet other fairy-tale princesses. On Oct. 13, New York newlyweds Olivia and Caleb Spark visited a park between their wedding ceremony and reception to take photos. “Suddenly, this little girl ran up to Olivia shouting, ‘Cinderella, Cinderella!’” photographer Nicole Wickins tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I wasn’t sure if I should take photos, but the girl’s mother was watching and seemed OK with it.”

The girl was 5-year-old Layla Lester, who has autism and, according to her mother, Jessica Lester, often has difficulty connecting with strangers. “When she sees a princess, she’s going to love them because she loves princesses,” Lester told Alabama news station WAFF. After the moth-er-law posting the story on Facebook, attention from the post prompted a GoFundMe page called “Help Send Layla to Disney World,” which has raised more than $3,000 to date. ​
