Judy’s thoughts: You’re Still The One
14th March 2009 marks the wedding night of Louis and Nicole, 2 years after Louis made his proposal in April 2007. The wedding dinner was held in Marina Mandarin’s main ballroom. The ballroom, with the low ceiling and immaculate decorations, made for a very intimate and cosy setting.
The sweet couple, Louis and Nicole
You immediately feel at ease once you step into the ballroom; or at least that was how I felt when I arrived at 6pm for my soundcheck. The couple had no time to chat with me as I bet they must have been busy preparing for their big night, and so the musicians (Joel and Clarence) and I were ‘taken care’ of by the couple’s good friend, Lewis.
According to Lewis, Louis surprised Nicole with his proposal in Perth, at the Oyster Bar (how appropriate *chuckles*). The lovely couple had met through a mutual friend in 1999, but really only got hitched in 2003, and of course, has been inseparable ever since.
The repertoire for the night, as requested by Nicole (who looked ravishing in her gowns), consisted of mostly jazz numbers as she preferred to have a ‘light’ touch to the evening. A wise choice indeed, as the guests really enjoyed the selection of songs and the warm, relaxed setting was even more enhanced by the music we provided.
I had tremendous fun in performing that night. Jazz never fails to uplift the soul and soothe our senses. In fact, the table beside us were enjoying our performance so much, the musicians and I decided to end our performance with an impromptu number specially for them, and had the table singing with us. It was a great finish to a beautiful night.
Both Louis and Nicole mentioned that they love to hang out in big groups, with their friends and not just the two of them alone. Definitely an out-going and fun-loving couple. Well, now that they are married, I’m sure they can start producing their own company of little tots to “hang out” with. As Nicole puts it – “The more the merrier” 🙂
