Picture Perfect: First Dance

After we made our grand entrance into the reception, we made our way to the dance floor for our first dance as husband and wife. While we spent days and days agonizing over our musical choices for our ceremony, cocktail hour and entrances, our first dance was never in doubt. Neither of us were interested in having a 3-minute sway fest in front of 130 of our friends and family, so we knew we wanted to steer clear of really slow songs. After making the decision to have a more up-tempo song, the choice was obvious. 

It’s a love song without being overly sappy (not that there is anything wrong with that), and it’s slow enough we could dance to it but quick enough that we didn’t have to awkwardly sway back and forth due to our lack of dance skills. 

Oh, did you want to know what we went with? Listen along to … You Are the Best Thing by Ray Lamontagne

Baby, it’s been a long day,
Baby, things ain’t been goin’ my way,
You know I need you here
To clear my mind, all the time

Image

Baby, the way you move me it’s crazy
It’s like you see right through me 
And make it easier
You don’t even have to try

ImageOh, because
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
That ever happened to me

Image

Baby, we’ve come a long way
Baby, you know I hope and I pray
That you believe me
When I say, this love will never fade away

Image

Oh, because
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
That ever happened to me

Image

Both of us have known love before
To come on all promising like a spring
Then walk on out the door
Our hearts are strong, and our hearts are kind
Let me tell you just exactly what’s on my mind

Image

You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
That ever happened to me

Image

You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing (you’re the best thing)
That ever happened to me

Image

 

It was awkward dancing in front of everyone like that, but we spent those 3 and a half minutes singing our favorite song and spinning in circles. It was perfect.
