We were in Tagaytay this weekend for Paul and Jona's wedding. Of course weddings are already generally happy occasions, but it was awesome because there were a lot of us Pisay people present. Mimi and Karl also did the photography, with ample assistance from Markku, so there were familiar faces all around.

We arrived late for the wedding (it was Leks's fault). We got in as the ceremony was ending and it was time to take photos. At least we made it to the photos.

Apart from everything else, I liked the music choices they went with. The bride and groom are big fans of Ben Folds, and the Folds ballad The Luckiest played as soon as the ceremony was over. They also used Such Great Heights for an audio-visual presentation later that evening. I think I also heard The Cure's In Between Days during the introduction by the entourage, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, I was listening to The Luckiest this morning, and it's really a sweet, smart love song. For most of the song, the narrator stumbles through awkward phrases and lines, for which he finally apologizes, and explains away the mediocre effort by saying I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you. Pang-balentayms talaga ;)

Afterwards, I ended up playing Magic, another Ben Folds Five ballad. I once thought it was a love song, but it was really about a loved one who has been battling a fatal illness before finally succumbing. The narrator takes comfort with the fact that the loved one is not really gone, but is now the magic that holds the sky up from the ground.
