You're the inspiration
You're the inspiration
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me saying
No one needs you more that I need you
This song has been stuck in my head for weeks, thanks to it being the wedding song. Above it all, the knight personally requested this one. The reason? All in the lyrics, he said. Aww... I believe my new aunt had melted like butter and left a puddle on the marble floor.
The final episode has to end in glamour and a momentous happy-ever-after, don't they? Okay, so maybe not all but that's the enchantment most fairy tales offer to feed the fantasies of the mind.
The picture above which I am proud of is the VIP table setting. The flourishing blood red roses with mishievous vines coiling around them were granted with the charm to attractive butterflies, something the Queen of Hearts was sure approve of. How it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland!!
How contrary! Pretty ladies in a row... Any direct family were obliged to lend a hand, which was alright since it would be the biggest wedding of the year!
Ice sculptures seem to appear a great deal at weddings. Then again, they do glisten with icy beauty, especially when the cooling mist slides off the mantlepiece and slithers across the floor. A gift so elegent might be from the Snow Queen, perhaps!
Such a majestic hall bursting with lights and adding to the ambiance.
A towering cake adorned the table. Victims awed by the respledence could be so easily tempted by the Pied Piper.
All 'workers aka helping family members' were required to put on a luscious orchid bloom, wet with dew and very much real. As I once said, uniformity makes you feel like part of a bigger picture. So while some of us became receptionists, and others were 'tycoons' greeting every soul, we cousins became the usherers, a hard job when thrown into a huge hall.
With the arrival of guests, the hall could but overflow with rhapsodic delight.
Tradition called for the couple to share this stream of joy by pouring champagne into a wine glass pyramid.
Not forgetting, of course, the immortalized Chinese term of congratulations... "YAMSENG!" Drink to prosperity!!
Our little gift --- a book encapsulating our personal messages to the lovebirds.
It used to be us prancing about, sweeping petals off the stage and tossing them into the air again as if reenacting a fairytale. And where may I have seen this before? Yes! This is where the Sugarplum Fairies performed their mesmerizing dance before Clara and the Nutcracker to celebrate the passing of the dark and glory of the day. Only this time, they take the form of innocent children as we used to.
