A Wedding Rap
When my friend Christina sent me the link to her online wedding photo album last month, I suddenly realised how important it was to share with those who couldn't make it to her wedding in Seattle (myself included) as well as to remember those beautiful moments with those who did attend the wedding, such as that of Vivian and Serge in early September 2006 where I played background music at their French and Dutch wedding reception in Provence.
The goal of December 2006 was thus to compile the belated photo album of our wedding of October 2005, long after Christina's wedding of August 2006 !
What use is a traditional wedding photo album if my friends and family are not here to see it? Sure, it could possibly entice them to visit but more than likely it will lie on my bookshelf unnoticed. In this cyberage, an online photo album is in order. And with it, you will hear the groom's wedding speech, not the kind you expect at most weddings, but an original rap --- text below:
Here is something I wanna get across,
Then there was a time that we just met
I know you are special, yeah I can tell
I had nothing, just my cool
It's been four years now for worse and for better
A long and winding road before us to go
