Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Signed Sealed Delivered, I’m Yours
“To the world, you are one person. To one person, you are the world.”
The above aphorism aptly describes the relationship between Lorraine and Carl. Both of them could hardly contain the glow of being newly-weds. Carl, when giving his speech, thanked Lorraine for giving him happiness, and for making him the “luckiest guy in the world.”
Lorraine, on the other hand, decided to put her emotions into a song, and surprised Carl by singing Can’t Take My Eyes Off You. We helped to orchestrate it, of course, by arranging a short practice session with Lorraine while Carl was entertaining the wedding guests outside the ballroom. That brief rehearsal was sufficient, and Lorraine brought the house down as she swayed her hips and sang with all her emotion. Carl could not stop smiling.
I loved how Lorraine and Carl chose a set of dance songs just to get the crowd moving. The couple clearly believed that dance was an important element of their wedding. After all, they started the ball rolling by dancing to Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me when they first entered the ballroom. Everyone was transfixed by their graceful and fluid movements, which were the obvious result of months of sustained practice. Kudos to Lorraine and Carl for making the effort!
Another highlight of the evening was the emcee, a close friend of Carl’s called Michael. He was a natural, and showed no signs of nerves at all. He was funny to boot, and exclaimed quite loudly while listing several of Carl’s positive traits, “Carl, I can’t read your writing la!”
Congratulations, Lorraine and Carl! Thank you for having faith in us, and giving us the opportunity to be a part of your beautiful wedding. May you continue to fall in love with each other every day!

Compliments from the couple:
Hi Hsin Yeow,
You guys are AWESOME!! The wedding wouldn’t be the same without the band.
All my friends and relatives are really impressed and have given me really positive feedback. Thank you for helping me with the surprise song, I had a great time singing with the band.
To tell you the truth Carl was initialy not so keen on having a band but after hearing you guys sing the 1st song he actually told me you guys are worth every penny! Absolutely no regrets!
Take care and hopefully our paths will cross again. Cheers!!
Lorraine and Carl
