Sarah concocted an elaborate wedding ceremony for these two love-bears, with MaryGrace's help on technical matters.
Valentina's wedding look was composed of tissues, fresh flowers, and a tiara.
There was an elaborate ceremony, which included Sarah delivering a short lesson on wedding traditions inherent to bear culture, including the fact that male bears receive wedding necklaces instead of wedding rings. The vows that Snowball and Valentina spoke to each other included the line, "I vow to love you in sickness and in madness and in stressness and sadness."
The unity candle ceremony is very important in bear weddings, we also learned.
Sarah also led the traditional toast: "Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaam SIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing"
(Performed at every Chinese Malaysian wedding we've attended, and also, of course, performed at my own wedding)
The wedding cake consisted of slices of white bread, buttered and sugared and rolled up, formed into a pile, covered with sprinkles and an Ariel figurine on top. I'm not sure anyone was actually brave enough to taste the concoction, so I have yet to hear any reviews on its taste.
The newlywed couple rode off in their specially decorated getaway car, as portrayed by "Roast Beef", our family's rocking horse. And, no, I don't know why it's called Roast Beef, but it's been in the family for probably 8 or 9 years and it's always been called Roast Beef, so we must accept it.
And Snowball and Valentina lived happily ever after.
When I was a kid, all of the performances that I put on for my family either involved Bible stories, evil genius inventors, or pirates. I can't remember ever putting on a wedding!
Did you or your siblings every put on shows for your parents when you were growing up?
