10 Years of First Dance Songs!

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Here you go – an alphabetical list of most of our couple’s first dance songs.  Anything with an asterisk has been danced to at more than one of our weddings.  I will be honest, I was interested to see that there wasn’t more duplication but every couple has ‘their song’ so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised!

New Song: All Of Me

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

This one isn’t so new but it is starting to get airplay and I am madly in love with this one.  We’re recapping all the First Dance songs this week and this would be a beautiful, beautiful first dance song.  Read the words, it’s perfect.  John Legend wrote it for his wife and sang it to her at their wedding – if you watch the video (warning: not quite NSFW but pretty sexy), the last 20 seconds or so are footage from their wedding.

All of Me by John Legend

What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You’ve got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

10 Years of Cakes!

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Another recap for this sunny (at least here in Columbus) Sunday afternoon!  Most of the cakes from the last 10 years of weddings – which is your favorite?

10 Years of Bouquets!

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

In honor of my 10th anniversary last month, I put the interns to work combing through pictures and timelines.  They’ve come up with pictures of all the past couple (which you saw last week), all our bouquets and cakes plus all the First Dance, Mother/Son and Father/Daughter dances from the last 10 years!  We’ll be sharing them over the next couple weeks just for the fun of it!

First up – Bouquets!  This is pretty much every bridal bouquet from the last 10 years – not as much solid white as you might think.  Lots of color, lots of texture and lots of pretty!
