Bevlyn’s thoughts: From This Moment
This wedding brings me good funny memories.
First off, the band was engaged by Ashlyn for her beloved husband Shaun as a surprise – Shaun was the one who liked my music and asked Ashlyn to check out my cd. Unknown to him, Ashlyn contacted me on the sly, and we conspired (along with the hotel staff and wedding helpers) to keep the band a hush hush….well…until after the 1st march-in. Ashlyn recounted to me after the wedding what roughly happened after they sat down after the 1st march-in:
Ashlyn: “Did you notice anything different about the 1st march-in music?”
Shaun: “No…why? What’s wrong?”
Ashlyn: (turned to the band and pointed)
(Bevlyn waved to Shaun and Ashlyn)
I thought that was really quite hilarious! :’D
Other than that bit, the best man and the bridesmaid both gave very entertaining speeches, I have to say. The best man shared that he knew Shaun many years ago when Shaun had “long orange hair” (quite hard to imagine). One of the punch lines he delivered was, “A man is not completed, until he got married………and then he’s finished“. That joke aside, he commented that he had never seen a lovelier Shaun, and that is all thanks to Ashlyn who brought out the best in him. Awwwww…
The bridesmaid’s speech was indeed an entertainingly gender-biased one:
Advice to Ashlyn: Do not buy a new brand of beer just because it is on sale.
Advice to Shaun:
1. In the wedding, the woman will always have the last say. Whatever the man says after what the woman says is the start of a new argument.
2. Put your hand on Ashlyn’s hand now, look into her lovely eyes, and savour this moment. This might be the last time you have the upper hand. 🙂
And like any good sabotage, Shaun was asked to re-enact the proposal; without hesitation, he went down on his knees and re-enacted the proposal! That’s the way huh!
My favourite part of the wedding had to be when Shaun and Ashlyn walked past the band while going round tables, and Shaun suddenly stopped Ashlyn and danced to our rendition of L-O-V-E. Impromptu moments like these make it the more romantic!
