College sweethearts and Palmetto State natives Mariah Fleming and David Nasrollahi are in the midst of a real-life fairy tale. After meeting at a fraternity function while in school at the College of Charleston, the couple courted in the Holy City for two years, sharing late-night sweets at Kaminsky’s, dining at their favorite eateries, and strolling through the streets South of Broad. For her birthday in 2015, David surprised Mariah—a "self-professed princess and Disney lover”—with a trip to Walt Disney World, and on the final night of the trip, revealed yet another surprise: a reservation for dinner at Cinderella’s Royal Table. After being welcomed by Cinderella, introduced to her princess pals, and topped with a tiara, Mariah took a seat with David and enjoyed a three-course meal. Finally, while they were awaiting dessert, a silver tray was delivered to the table holding a glass slipper. It was then that David dropped to one knee and proposed, to which Mariah said “Yes!” just before a fireworks show began outside. The couple will cap off their happily-ever-after tale with a wedding December 10, 2016, at Hibernian Hall.
