I've already mentioned a few of the songs that we jammed out to at our wedding, but I figured they deserved mentioning since most were pretty significant (at least to me).
Charlie and I were introduced to "Better Half" by Keith Urban. [Told you I loved country]. When we first started dating I made the boy a mix CD with a bunch of country songs on it & this was one of them. In a way this became "our song" but we didn't pick it for our first dance because it's pretty fast and I'm not that skilled of a dancer. I think I mentioned that before.
Our first dance was to "Someone Like You" by Van Morrison. I've mentioned my love of Van before. We listen to him all.the.time.. Seriously love him. Tupleo Honey is my favorite album.
My dad and I danced to a shortened version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" & "What a Wonderful World" by Israel Kamakawiwo. Personally I like the second half of the song the best.
Charlie & his mom danced to "A New Day has Come" by Celine Dion. This was a surprise for her, we had originally decided not to do parent dances and when we changed our minds Charlie wanted to keep it a secret from his mom. The two of them bawled the entire time along with pretty much everyone else.
I mentioned that we danced to "Green Grass Grows" by Tim McGraw.
... and Charlie and his buddies danced to "Call on Me"... the remix. Lovely.
Of course "Shout" made its appearance ...
... as did "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green. Not sure why I like this one so much.
And my personal favorite of the night, "Friends in Low Places" by Garth Brooks.
The last dance of the night was Van again, "Have I Told You Lately".
