Sometimes the lines between real life and fairytales become a little blurry... tell us your story!
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.
