Aurora (Briar Rose) and Prince Phillip, easily my favorite Disney Couple. Everyone knows who they are, but how many know their true love story?

Trying to protect Aurora; Flora, Fauna and Merryweather convinced King Stefan and the Queen Leah to send her to live with the fairies in the woodcutter's cottage in the forest until after sundown on her 16th birthday. Briar Rose, as she was called by the three fairies, was beautiful and kind and had many friends in the forest. On the morning of her 16th birthday the fairies send her to pick berries in the forest while they plan a surpirse party for her. Which leads us to the video and what happens when Aurora and Phillip meet for the second time.

They meet again in the forest and fall in love - neither knowing who the other really is. Unfortunately, the fairies use magic to create the perfect party for Briar Rose which tips off Maleficent's Raven to their whereabouts. Totally smitten with the peasant girl, Phillip goes to his father and tells him he wants to break his bethrothal to Princess Aurora so that he can marry for love. He proves his love by risking his own life to fight the evil Maleficent in order to save the girl he loves. Finally, after defeating Maleficent he breaks the spell with Loves True Kiss. No one else tells a love story quite like Disney do they? Sigh.
