My Magical Fairy Tale Weddings Vow Renewal Vacation…


** Edited on July 9, 2007 **

Last month, my photos were moved to a new website (Flickr). Because of that fact, the links that I have shared in this trip report to my personal photos will no longer work. Sadly, it will take me quite a while to repair them. Until I do, I thought I would share the link to my main photo album: click here.

If you go to that main photo album, please click on the "collection" entitled "Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings." Inside that collection you will find a series of photo albums that pertain to my custom vow renewal. I haven’t shared all of my photos yet but have shared some of them. As I continue to work on my trip report, I will share more photographs.


“Pure Imagination”
click here for audio clip
from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Music and Lyrics: Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley

Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly
Wish to be

And so my journey begins. It will be a journey that will seem completely unreal at times, but I can assure you, the journey that I share with you will be nothing but real. So please sit back and enjoy the ride.

There Is No Life I Know To Compare With Pure Imagination…

I shared the lyrics to the song “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory for one main reason: That song completely describes how I wanted my Fairy Tale Weddings vow renewal to turn out. I wanted to create an evening for my husband that would give him a glimpse inside the deepest regions of my heart. An evening that would defy explanation. An evening of my creation. An evening of pure imagination.

For Some Background Info Regarding My FTW Vow Renewal…

For those of you who are unfamiliar with me, a few months ago I started a trip report that describes some of the aspects of the planning of my Fairy Tale Weddings vow renewal. To read it, please click on the following link: My Fairy Tale Weddings Vow Renewal Trip Planning Session.

That trip report is far from finished. I hope one day (within this millennium) to complete it, just as I hope to complete this one. Please forgive me if I repeat some things from one trip report in the other trip report. If I do that, it will be for one of two reasons: (1) I feel the info is pertinent to both trip reports, and (2) I am old and thus forget things (sometimes, a lot).

I came to the Dis to look up some info on renewals and stumbled upon your reports and again....WOW!!! is all I can really say to descibe the way I felt after reading them. Thank you for brightening my day!!!

Janet...I am just thrilled you have begun your report. AND a little freaked out! "Pure Imagination" is a favorite of DD and me I can't tell you how often we sing "Come with me,
And you'll be..." It's a wonderful song! The magic has already begun...

I know you were struggling with how to begin your story and I have to say, Willy Wonka's "Pure Imagination" is simply perfect.

Yet another connection

Janet, I find we have yet another connection. I love Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I have a grandson named Willy and I introduced him to it. I think of him every time I hear anything about it and am hoping he is still enjoying it.

I will checking in to see your next reports and pictures. I am hooked. LOL

Always smile. It makes your friends happy and worries your enemies.

We just moved to our Happy Place

Yeah! The story begins! We are almost all the way through "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" with my fifth grade SFA reading group! What does this mean? When we watch the movie for comparisons in a little over a week, I am sure I'll be tearing up thinking of Janet and her lovely family while that song is playing!

I agree with what others have posted. You are a wonderful story teller who manages to convey in words what your heart speaks. Thank you!
