We celebrated the holy matrimony of our dear friends aka Phoebie’s godparents, Sharon and Sebastian, at The White Rabbit today.
Phoebie is one of the flower girls and she was supposed to hold hands with little boy Zebedee, but at the last minute, she decided otherwise and was apparently rolling on the floor. I was the emcee at the wedding but I knew the Pastor was going to take care of the entire ceremony, so I went to the back and carried Phoebie. In the end, with Phoebie in my right arm and with Zebedee holding my left hand, we walked down the aisle together.
Waiting for Sharon to walk down the aisle was emotional. I’ve known Sharon for, well, many many years and she is like a younger sister, a really good friend.
I had the honour of hosting the luncheon and this luncheon was entertaining, touching, musical, and funny at times.
Other than hosting the wedding luncheon, I was also given the honour of performing a song item with my friends, Jinny and Joanie. Jinny was on the guitar and Joanie was on the ukulele. Both of them got comfortable sitting at the back and I was told to stand in front. -_-”
Nonetheless, this was probably one of the hardest song items I’ve done so far, singing Bruno Mars’ Count On Me, all the time remembering how Sharon and Sebastian will be leaving for Dublin in a couple of days to start their new life together.
Sharon and Sebastian, thank you again for having us be a part of your special day. We love you both and the song I sang says it all. If you need us, we’ll be there. Have a wonderful life, be each other’s best friends and may you always have Jesus in the centre of your marriage. Xoxo!
