Bevlyn’s thoughts: This Is The (Blue Moon) Day

What struck me most about Gary and Rachel’s wedding were the little touches they used to make the whole wedding celebration a very personalised one: including a “live” video feed of the couple walking from into the ballroom for their first march-in; a special MTV video montage of the couple’s everyday lives; interview segments which shared how they met and what they like about each other; and last but not least, song performances from Rachel and Gary, dedicated to each other.

Gary chose to perform Blue Moon with the band. We were actually quite honoured when Gary came to practise with us, because not even Rachel had heard him sing before! We could also sense that he was nervous because he had never performed in public, so we gave him lots of advice and encouragement. Still, Gary deserved all the credit because even though he was constantly battling the butterflies in his stomach, he never wavered from his decision to perform for Rachel on their wedding night. It was not hard to see how deeply in love Gary is with Rachel.

The audience could feel it too, and rewarded him warmly with thunderous applause after he sang. In reciprocation, Rachel performed This Is The Day, and melted everyone’s hearts when she said, “I love you” and kissed Gary at the end of the song.

This is the day that the Lord hadth made
And I’m so glad he made you
With each rising sun you are here by my side
You are more than a dream come true

Oh… have you to hold you
To love you to pray
To care with to share with
To hold hands and say…..

This is the day that the Lord hadth made
And I will rejoice
I will rejoice
I will rejoice with you…

Verse 3

This is the day……
This is the day……
This is the day……
This is te day……

Verse 2

This is the love that the Lord hadth made
You and I we are one
Love’s mistery is unfolding today
Written for us in the son..

(Repeat chorus)

To Gary and Rachel: Thanks for the lyrics!

Compliments from Gary and Rachel: A Big Thank You!

Dear members of Little Dream,

We would like to thank each and everyone of you for your splendid and professional performance on our wedding day.

Your presence have indeed made a great difference! Everyone were asking us who you guys were? Most of them thought you were from our church. But of course we did some word-of-mouth advertising for you…. (not to worry..)

Special thanks to Jun Xiong for being a fantastic emcee. You were very detailed and professional. And not forgetting the sweet voice of Bevlyn too!

All the best to you guys…we are sure your “little dream” will turn into a “big dream” one day!

God bless!

Gary & Rachel
