A few months back, I received a text message asking if our vocal group is available to sing for a wedding proposal. That was a first for me, since I have never had a client for that kind of event.
After some email exchanges with the contact person, finally, I got to meet her a month before the event. They have a videography service and they are set to capture the entire wedding proposal on video.
That is another first for me. I never encountered wedding proposal that will be videographed. That would be very special indeed.
I recall my husband’s proposal to me. Though we have been talking about getting married before he proposed, the actual proposal was still a surprise for me. We were on Doulos, a floating bookstore, then visiting the Philippines. We both love reading, and really, my husband knows me too well. It was just us, on one corner of the bookstore (it was where the cookbooks were, being foodies as well). He inserted a small paper with the question “Will you marry me?” on page 143. He showed the booked, I opened that bookmarked page, then he showed the ring and knelt. How could I say no to that!
Now we’re happily singing together forever in quite a number of events, including this wedding proposal gig. We were just four singers, a vocal group we call Perfect Blend.
The man for the hour was groom-to-be Stan and his girlfriend Rocel, who was totally clueless before that special day.
Two days before the actual proposal, the entire team met Stan for the first time. It was just email exchanges back then, as he is from India. With the help of the videography team and my singing team, we nailed the proposal the way he wanted. Stan specifically requested the song “Let it be me” by the Everly Brothers. I wrote a simple arrangement for back up quartet as Stan sings the solo.
Here’s how it went:
