The shark attack victim is planning a summer wedding.


Surfing champ Bethany Hamilton, 23, who lost her left arm in a shark attack, is engaged and planning a summer wedding.

In Touch Weekly was with Hamilton as she tried on wedding dresses at New York's Mark Ingram bridal shop.

"I feel like a princess!" she told the mag a tthe June 19 photo shoot. Her Prince Charming? Christian youth minister Adam Dirks, 25.

"I always felt it would be hard for me to meet someone because I'm different," the Soul Surfer author tells In Touch. "To say I was completely comfortable looking at myself in the mirror and seeing one arm would be a lie. I just had to trust in God and know that he had someone special for me."

Dirks fits the bill. "I'm living a fairy tale," she gushes to In Touch. "I feel loved ... just as I am."
