Beauty and the Beast

An enchanted beast terrorizes, then captures a maiden... but who captures who? Beauty and the Beast is one of the most resonant, endearing and enduring love stories of all time.

Is it your story?

  1. If my wedding was a fairy tale, it was definitely Beauty and the Beast. My fiancee had a thing for King Kong, which is totally a B & the B story. We made a little Kong and Anne Darrow for the top of the cake, and his vows were along the line of I called him on Skull Island and asked him to come to New York with me.

    I was afraid of getting married, and found courage in the Persephone story, which is also a B & the B story. (What greater Beast than the Hades?) Both Persephone and Beauty headed into the home of the Beast with a belief in themselves. "I love and therefore I can handle this."

    And of course my Beast, who indeed can be a bit beastly at times--but at others is a funny and furry ape who likes to climb on things, is much more fun and interesting than a regular, well-groomed, politically proper prince.
