My Fiance and i have been together for 6 years. 3.5 years have been spent apart on opposite sides of the country. We both love classical music. Years ago we decided that Pachelbel's Cannon in D Major would be our 'Wedding Song.' Before long periods of time spent apart, we would often share intimate moments where we would hold each other as the figurines are in the piece and sway to Cannon in D Major. We mostly ended up in tears of unrivaled love and promise to return to one another. He has been away with the Navy for 6 months now and our love has been uncertain at times, to say the least. But he promises to always love me no matter what. When I received this piece as a belated anniversary gift from him I was immediately reduced to tears. It has so much meaning to me and to us, it really touched my heart in a way I cannot explain. It expresses the promise of our love and our promise to finally slow dance to Cannon in D Major when we marry. Every time I look at it and hear the music I remember the times we swayed to the song and the intimacy it brought. This piece will surely give so much more meaning to our wedding when we dance to the song and It will surely carry me through the difficult times of separation ahead of us. This is by far the best gift I have ever received. I will treasure it forever.
Hi, My husband and I found the Willow Tree collection during a city trip in KÃ¶ln (Germany). We fell completely in love with it and bought some statues as Christmas gifts. We will reach our fifth wedding anniversary in May and I need this one, not only because we love Willow Tree but also because this song was played by a folkloric group for our first dance :)
I have loved and collected Willow Tree pieces for years. I love the stories they tell and every time I'm given one from someone, they tell me why it means something special from them to me. My husband and I were married in 2008. and a couple of years ago we were window shopping and I saw the Promise Musical piece. I loved it and told my husband I wanted it. When we were married, I walked down the aisle to "Canon in D." We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary, and he surprised me with Promise. I hadn't mentioned it in over a year and was amazed he remembered! I love it and have listened to it several times!! Thank you for the joy and memories you bring to people's lives!
It's inpiring for Susan to hear how you feel about your Willow Tree piece. Your personal interpretation is so meaningful... thank you for taking the time to share it.
