Song Challenge, Day Twenty-Three

A song you want played at your wedding.

Finally, and easy one!!!

I got married 11 years ago, and I am so not planning to get married again!!! But I can tell you what songs were played at my wedding and what was played at our wedding vow renewal ten years later.

When my bridesmaids walked into the church, we played “I Do” by 98 Degrees. (Yes, Amanda, another boy band!) And as a side note, the video is one of my all-time favorites!! LOVE the twist at the end!

When Daddy walked me down the aisle to give me away, we played “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle.

And when John and I lit the Unity Candle my cousin JoEllen sang the song “My Valentine.” I don’t have a recording of JoEllen singing it—not one that I can share here, anyway—so I am sharing the original version by Jim Brickman and Martina McBride.

Ten years later, we renewed out wedding vows. We again had the pleasure of a live song by a good friend. This time, it was acapella version of Shania Twain’s hit “Still the One.” My best friend Lori sang it for us. Again, I don’t have a recording of her singing that one so I have to treat to the radio version.

The last song that I want to share is one that I used for the background music on a slide show of our lives together. That song is “Love of My Life” by Jim Brickman and Michael W. Smith.
