(WQOW) - Two alumni of UW-Eau Claire became college sweethearts three years ago, right before they both graduated.

Now they are getting ready to tie the knot after their engagement was crafted with the help of Disney. Their proposal can now be streamed by millions on Disney Plus.

It all started when Alyssa Noll saw a post shared on Facebook about an open casting call at Disney Plus looking for couples to get married or engaged on their original show, "Disney Fairy Tale Weddings."

"I sent him the link and I said, 'LOL you should apply for this,' and completely forgot about it," said Alyssa.

"And then I just took the reins over because she didn't think I was going to do it at all," said her now-fiance, Jesse Kreger.

After submitting an application, Jesse was contacted by Disney and worked to begin planning for how they were going to make this proposal one-of-a kind.

The two being nature lovers, Disney suggested a cruise to Alaska. However, Alyssa was convinced by her parents that it was a spur of the moment family vacation topped off with a helicopter ride to the top of a glacier. Unbeknownst to her, Jesse was waiting at the peak.

"I thought I was just taking a helicopter ride with my family," Alyssa said. "And we're landing and I see this sign that says, 'Will you marry me?' and I actually said, 'Oh look, there's a proposal!'"

The moment is now immortalized in a video for the world to see, and for Jesse and Alyssa to rewatch and look back on their happy day.

"It's just so nice to be able to have something that we can relive, you know that day, together and with our families, too," said Jesse.

Alyssa and Jesse are currently planning their wedding, but in the meantime, you can watch their episode already on Disney Plus. It's the second episode of season two of "Disney Fairy Tale Weddings."
