The Aisle Music.

I thought long and hard about song choices for every part of the ceremony: while guests were finding their seats, the procession songs, and our exit song for after "I do".

I chose songs that had meaning, "lovey" lyrics, or classic tunes. And I was so excited about them.

And you know what? I didn't even get to hear them. :)

Not because they weren't played... or because there was some mistake. No! Of course not. Things went extremely smoothly and if they didn't I haven't found out yet.

No, because it never even occurred to me that while all my hard-thought out songs were played I would be locked inside the bridal suite... hidden away.

I never thought that I wouldn't be able to see Sean walk his mom down the aisle, or our grandmothers walked down... or our bridal party. It never even crossed my mind that I wouldn't be able to watch. How dumb!

But songs were still played... and these were our picks:

Prelude Songs while were guests finding their seats:

Better together - Jack Johnson
Wonderful tonight - Eric Clapton
More than anyone - Gavin Degraw
Here comes the sun - The Beatles
Hey, soul sister - Train

Procession - Sean, parents, grandmothers:



Unchained Melody - Righteous Brothers

Procession - wedding party:



Earth Angel - The Temptations

Bridal Entrance:



Bella's Lullaby from Twilight

Recessional (or the first song heard as a married couple!)



Higher and higher - Jackie Wilson

  1. You missed it, but because you put so much thought into all the small details it was an amazing experience for the rest of us who got to enjoy every minute of it. And we knew how much each song choice meant to you, which made it even more special. <3
