BEV: First Dance

Since mentioning my wedding in the previous post, I've been thinking: I should share more of our special day. I started writing Bride's Eye View posts when I started my blog as a way to share thing I learned along the way of wedding planning. I've taken a detour away from those posts recently and it's time to get back to it. However, this time around I want to share more from our day. (Hope y'all don't mind!) 

First up: our first dance.


Our first dance as husband and wife. A quiet moment during such a big day. We closed our eyes, smiled, and enjoyed holding on to each other for a fleeting three minutes. David Gray sang to us. Took us back to that first year of falling in love. Days where we would jump in husband's Explorer, get lost on country roads, and listen to songs that were ours. This dance was one of my favorite moments of that day.


Some people are lyrics people and some are music people - we are both and neither. I can't explain it, if we like a song, we like it. That's it. Ultimately This Year's Love won, but Last Request and Two both were in the runnings. None of these songs are really songs celebrating love, but they are our songs - and that's all that mattered.

Aw how cute! I started planning my wedding since I was 5! Don't know if I ever will but the first dance is one of the things that I fantasize the most, I've choosen songs already but after reading this I realized that songs have to be OURS, you song choices are great and although they are not exactly about love, they have beautiful lyrics! Can't wait to see more about the wedding!

Aw, my mine and my husband's song was This Year's Love when we first started dating as teenagers and we danced to Life in Slow Motion when we got married in 2006. Gotta love David Gray! You two are soo gorgeous together!
