"She may be the reason I survive"

As I mentioned earlier, I got married less than a month ago. And here's a couple of pictures. Most of the pictures were family, so just a few to share here.

This cocktail dress was so comfortable! I'm really glad I didn't pick anything more constricting.

This was the smallest, most relaxed wedding I've ever been too. I'm really glad how it turned out.

To any future brides, keep it small! it's so much more fun.

Btw, I picked two songs for the wedding, one classical for my "entrance" and two "She" by Elvis Costello - one of my favorite songs of all time (from one of the best movies "Notting Hill"). Here's lyrics and video.


She may be the face I can't forget
The trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song the summer sings
May be the chill the autumn brings
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day

She may be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
The smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem inside her shell

She who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry
She may be the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows of the past
But I'll remember till the day I die

She may be the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I'll care for through the rough in many years
Me, I'll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is she
