As it turns out, fairy tales do come true.

Jessica Hershberg, who appeared as the title role the recent Broadway production of Cinderella, found her Prince Charming in fellow cast mate Santino Fontana. The actor played the prince in the same stage revival, but you know him better as the voice of Prince Hans from Disney’s Frozen. The two tied the knot during a ceremony in New York’s Catskills on Sept. 5.

“Today, she’s wearing the dress for real, with her real-life prince by her side,” Hershberg’s father Theodore told The New York Times.

Hershberg came on the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical towards the end of Fontana’s yearlong contract. She shared the stage with him as an esemble member and, after his departure, she stepped out on stage multiple times as the lead, Ella.

“Honored & grateful,” Fontana wrote on Instagram. He thanked the Times for the write-up and included a photo of the happy couple together. 

Honored & grateful. Thanks @cowannyt @nytimesvows.@iamjessfontana LINK IS IN MY PROFILE!

Fontana can be seen next in Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Sisters later this year.

Correction: An early version of this story mispresented Jessica’s stage time as Ella.
