The Bride, might be unknown to some, is a die hard fan of classical music. Listening to instrumental always has this calming effect on her. So when she planned the wedding, the music was all part of it. She wanted to strut on the aisle to the sound of a violin or a piano. Even without an idea if the church would allow a non-christian song played on the processional, she moves on with the plan.
FYI, this Bride is just soooo damn lucky! If you want this in your wedding, ask your church first ’cause you know weddings here in the Philippines is VERY CONVENTIONAL.
She started on this video below and immediately decided that it has to be “Canon in D by Pachelbel”. But of course, this was her first time so she knew none who could play at the wedding. And then she asked a friend.
Her friend gave her the name of the violinist. She contacted him and it was sealed. But of course, because she is one lucky girl, it wasn’t just one song. The violinist suggested that “Leah’s Two Words” is also nice. When she checked on the lyrics & listened for the first time, she cried. And that was it. It’s gotta be the song that she will walk on the aisle with.
In a while, in a word,
Every moment now returns.
For a while, seen or heard,
How each memory softly burns.
Facing you who brings me new tomorrows,
I thank God for yesterdays,
How they led me to this very hour,
How they led me to this place…
Every touch, every smile,
You have given me in care.
Keep in heart, always I’ll,
Now be treasuring everywhere.
And if life should come to just one question,
Do I hold each moment true?
No trace of sadness,
Always with gladness…

As the days drew nearer, the violinist asked about the sound system in the church, of which she often forgot to asked. On the day, she realized just how favored by the gods she is. The music was very clear.
And then…a look back at how she felt when she walk down the aisle!
She was nervous. She was giddy. She felt heavy. And then “Two Words” played. No matter how she tried, like the first time she hear the music, it was crying time. Seeing her Mother and Brother crying brought on more tears. She felt more heavier. She was shaking.
And then she saw her Bridesmaids’ cheering on her. The Groomsmen’s reassuring smile. Her friends. Everyone. She focused on her walk. Just. 3. Steps. More!!!
