Getting married is one of the most special days of your life and one you will never forget. For three exceptional couples, their weddings will include some Disney magic and elegance, as well as a few surprises thrown in, to give them the wedding they always dreamed of and more. And while three couples are entering wedded bliss, one lucky couple is just about to start their wedding journey with a proposal of a lifetime. Hosted by “The Bachelor” alums Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell, “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the one-of-a-kind weddings, including a surprise performance by the multiplatinum-selling a cappella group Pentatonix and magical engagements that take place at Disney Destinations around the globe.

The four couples featured in the special are:

Ruby and Eric from Oxnard, California
Ruby and Eric quickly got married at the courthouse seven years ago before Eric was deployed overseas. During his two deployments, Eric always vowed to give Ruby the wedding of her dreams and now he is finally able to deliver on this promise. With a breathtaking setting in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Resort in California, an unexpected carriage ride down Main Street U.S.A., and an even bigger surprise wedding serenade by Pentatonix, Ruby and Eric’s wedding is one for the history books.

Carolina and Isaiah from Phoenix, Arizona
Carolina was Isaiah’s “seventh grade girl of his dreams” and will now soon be his wife. This adventurous couple knew a traditional wedding wasn’t their style and decided on a “wedding-moon” in the Bahamas. With family and friends in tow, Carolina and Isaiah sail off on Disney Cruise Line for a romantic and fun Disney’s private island wedding adventure.

Taylor and Tyler from Dallas, Texas
Taylor and Tyler spend their magical day at Epcot in Florida. Taylor’s family has a deep history with The Walt Disney Company, with her father working for the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and her sister as a voice actor on Disney Channel’s “Star Wars Rebels.” With this family legacy, Taylor’s dream wedding has always been a Disney wedding. With a choreographed first dance and Taylor’s goal of making Tyler cry, this is sure to be a wedding viewers will never forget.

Melanie and Greg from Peoria, Illinois
Melanie thinks her boyfriend Greg is taking her on a fun vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida to get away from the stresses of their life. The couple heads out on a sunrise safari ride at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, but unbeknownst to her, Melanie is in for the surprise of her life as Greg has prepared an unforgettable wedding proposal.
