A Couple Had a Disney Themed Wedding

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

The Weeknd Dropped A New Album
Abel Tesfaye’s fourth album has officially dropped and two things are automatically clear: it’s a total banger and the majority of it is all about ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid. After Hours sings forlornly about his ex diving headfirst into the regret he’s experienced since their breakup. Fans are already directing all the lyrics, but it’s pretty obvious […]

Talk about a happy ever after! Christine Utley and Drew Sanza are Disney fans who have been together since 2013. The California couple met on OkCupid “before Tinder was cool,” as Utley puts it. The couple knew they wanted Disney to be their wedding theme.

 

“We both love Disney,” Utley told Insider. “We have annual passes, and we go all the time. Whether it’s just to circle the park on a walk, have a corn dog, or indulge in all the sweets we walk by, it’s always a fun time. We wanted our guests to have the best night of their lives, leave the everyday stresses behind, and be a kid again,” she said of their decision to make their wedding Disney-themed.

 

Utley and Sanza got married in the Rose Court Garden at the Disneyland Hotel. “Our ceremony was at the beautiful Disneyland Rose Court Garden and the reception was at the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Pavilion,” Utley told Insider.

 

“Keeping with the tradition of hidden Mickeys throughout Disneyland, our flower spread on the rose court garden gazebo included a beautiful floral Mickey head arrangement of white hydrangeas,” Utley said.

 

Even all of Utley’s wedding jewelry was Disney themed as well!

 

“I wore Mickey-shaped diamond earrings, a Mickey and Minnie diamond bracelet that Drew gifted me before the wedding, and a carriage necklace that my mom gifted me right before I walked down the aisle,” she said.

 

“When I was approaching the ceremony, I saw a horse and carriage on the pathway,” she said. Utley’s grandma arranged the surprise. “The carriage was lit up and was just beautiful,” she said. The most elaborate touch to the wedding was the footman who carried the couple’s rings in a glass slipper.

 

“He held a satin pillow with a glass slipper on it, which held both of our rings,” Utley said. The “Cinderella”-themed addition turned out to be one of the best parts of the wedding.
