Our Wedding Soundtrack

From the first week we met, Gigi and I have bonded over music.  As our relationship grew we knew that when it came time to get married, music would play a big part of that day.  As that day came closer, and planning was well under way, we spent hours pouring through our collection of albums and songs to find the song that fit each moment perfectly.  We think we did a pretty dang good job, too!

We probably annoyed the heck out of our DJ (Sorry Bruce & Geoff!) with our extremely specific song choices and instructions regarding the songs.  In the end, letting all of our friends and family in on the soundtrack that had been playing for so long in our heads was better than we could have ever imagined.  When we look back, there isn’t a song that we would change.  Each one captured exactly what we were feeling in that moment. 

As we talk to everyone who was at the wedding we are always asked about the songs that were played.  Because everyone is so interested, we decided we would share with everyone the list of songs that made up the soundtrack to our wedding.
