We walked down the "aisle" to Book Of Love as covered by Peter Gabriel . Hubby found it, and it is just magically beautiful, with a side of funny. It's also really long, and his mom's back yard simply isn't that big. We were up front for a while until the song finished, but whatever. Our wedding :)
The ring bearer (Hubby's niece - with a change of niece at the last moment, tee hee) walked to this, "All I Want Is You" from Juno. She took a shortcut, so the song seemed very long again. But it was fine, because we had some serious issues getting the rings off the pillow! LOL.
At the end of the ceremony, Mom, Sister, and LilSis sange "In My Life" by the Beatles. LilSis did the arrangement, and played the guitar. Acoustic, 3 part harmony...gorgeous :) It took a while to figure out this song...I knew we wanted something at the end, and we just couldn't figure the damn thing out! Then one day it popped up on a CD, and I knew that was it.
Ever see "50 Fi.rst Dates"? Or the episode from ER where Dr. Green dies? Yeah, that's this song. "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole. I adore this song, but it didn't ever show on lists for anything and I just really needed it. When Hubby and I first started dating, he sat down and found it for me, downloaded it, and played it for me as a surprise. It's our song. So this was our dance, the one that is just us. It is one of those songs that can just make me smile and go all misty instantaneously.
So I hope that you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. I will leave you with a few photos (I changed my mind)...
