As a wedding photographer, I just love the emotion of the wedding day. From the pre-ceremony jitters, to the ceremony tears, to the exit, it all makes for a great day. One of my favorite parts though is the couple’s first dance. I’m always curious why a couple chooses a certain song for that dance. what meaning does the song have? Do the words have a special meaning? Was this the song they heard when they first kissed?
Over the years, I’ve heard some very beautiful songs and I have a few favorites as well (what can I say, I’m a big softie at heart). I’m adding some YouTube links so you can hear the songs as well. Most songs can be purchased on Apple.com or even Amazon. Not in any particular order, are my choices and you can click the play button to hear them here or go directly to YouTube.com:
“I found love” by BeBe Winans
“If only you knew”, by Patti LaBelle
“forever Mine” by the O’Jays
“Good morning beautiful” by Brad Paisley
“Love, Need, and Want you” by Patti LaBelle
“When I said I do” by Chante Moore and Kenny Lattimore
“Make it last forever” by Chante Moore and Kenny Lattimore (this entire album is great for love songs)
“For you” by Kenny Lattimore
“Lifetime” by Maxwell
Of course this list can go on forever, but you get the idea. If you have any song suggestions, please reply and I’ll add them to the next posting. Enjoy!!
