And the whole family lived happily ever after.
It was a storybook 5th anniversary
– and happy 2nd birthday treat for their twins
– as Mariah Carey
and Nick Cannon renewed their vows at the Happiest Place on Earth, California's Disneyland, on Tuesday night, Entertainment Tonight
"On our way to renew our vows," Carey Tweeted
early in the evening. "I love you @Nick Cannon."
All dressed up in matching prince and princess costumes
, Carey and daughter Monroe were picked up in a horse-drawn Crystal Carriage from a Dream Suite inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, then taken to Main Street to meet Cannon and son Moroccan. Together the family proceeded to Sleeping Beauty Castle, for the vow renewals.
"Do you believe in fairy tales?" was the theme for the ceremony – which concluded with fireworks over the castle spires, a pyrotechnic display that reportedly came as a total surprise to Carey and the couple's 250 guests.
What followed was a reception in Fantasyland, deejayed by Cannon and accented by 15,000 flowers imported from South Africa, Holland and France and 10,000 crystals. Plus, guests enjoyed access to the Matterhorn Bobsleds, Peter Pan's Flight, Snow White's Adventures and the King Arthur Carousel, all of which were kept running.
Before the renewal of the vows, Moroccan and Monroe celebrated their birthdays with yet another famous couple: Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
