Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m back with more wedding posts! I know…you’re shocked! Ha! Today, I’m reliving the kickoff to the reception, which was the introduction of the bridal party, our first dance, the father/daughter dance, and the mother/son dance. All were very special moments for Patrick and me.
We started off the reception by introducing the wedding party and having them enter to the song “I’ve Got a Feeling” by The Black Eyed Peas. I know, it’s a little cliché, but it’s one of my favorite songs and one of those songs that every time I hear it, I am immediately taken back to the early days of our relationship!
Next, it was time for our first dance, which was one of my very favorite parts of our wedding day! We started out dancing to “Marry Me” by Train, then after the first verse, the music scratched and jumped to “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” by Usher. Patrick and I (along with our MOH and Best Man) had been scheming for quite some time to surprise everyone with a choreographed dance. Since being a very young girl, dancing has been my favorite thing ever, so I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the best day of my life than dancing with some of my favorite people! Check out a few pics and also the video that was captured of the dance.
Next up, it was time for the Father/Daughter dance. I can remember being much younger and dancing with my dad at weddings (because my mom HATES dancing and would never dance with him) and this time was pretty much like all the others…except this time it was MY wedding, which made me it much more special! We danced to “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong.
One last thing, because our DJ is a rockstar, a Nashville blogging bride, Ashley’s Bride Guide, decided to do a feature on first dances and custom wedding tracks and we got to be the featured couple. Here is the link if anyone wants to check it out!
