Wedding Songs

We want to do a detailed post on how the whole wedding went, but we’ve just been so busy. Especially with the holidays here, time seems to fly by. Anyway, I thought i’d list the wedding songs that were of significance.

  • Our Grand Entrance song: Now and Forever – Air Supply
  • First Dance song: The One – Elton John
  • Cake Cutting song: Lady in Red – Chris Deburgh

Now the reason for the chosen songs.

On our very first trip away together, we went and saw Air Supply in Southern California. Richard never heard of Air Supply, and when we heard lead singer Russel Hitchcock on stage singing Now and Forever, we were just blown away.

The first dance song by Elton John. I’m a big Elton John fan. I happen to see the title of this song, “The One,” and thought I should listen to it. I had never heard this song before, even though it’s an old song. Thus, this song was untainted to both Richard and I; it had not sentimental meaning prior to Richard and I dating. It was brand new to us. The lyrics seem to speak to me, and I knew Richard was “The One.”

As for the cake cutting song, Lady in Red. This one was easy. My favorite color is red, the colors of our wedding were red and orange, and last but not least, the dress I was to wear was a red chinese dress.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Since i’m part Irish, I especially enjoy this day and learning of the history. We’ll be going to the St. Patty’s Day Parade in San Francisco today.

The day is the national holiday of the Irish people. It is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland, and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Montserrat, and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In Great Britain, the United States, Australia and the rest of Canada, it is widely celebrated but is not an official holiday. Continue reading Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
