I went for a walk in the woods the other day. There’s a rail trail near home that’s canopied with huge old oaks and maples. They’re starting to think about maybe turning color one of these days, but still green and shady. There wasn’t another soul around. Just me, my thoughts, the expansive tunnel of trees. There was a calm to it, but also a thrill of discovery.
That thrill is what draws us into the old stories. It’s what makes our culture reexamine, reinterpret, and reinvent characters and familiar stories. Take Snow White. This year alone there have been three retellings of the tale, each one different, each beautiful, each touching on the themes of the classic.
A fairy tale wedding is the dream of so many brides, but this is one case where less is more. Touches of apples on the cake, bouquet, and ring. Bright pops of color far removed from any classic animation. A beautiful and romantic wedding invitation like Paperwhites Rebecca Wedding Invitation. And that sweet grace note to seal it all–And they lived happily ever after.
