Have you checked out our contest for FREE wedding photography?? It closes Monday and we announce the finalists on Tuesday!!
My dad used to sing me to sleep when I was a little girl. One of my favorite memories of childhood. The song I danced with my dad to at my wedding, in case you’ve been wondering (I know, it was keeping you up at night) was Danny’s Song, by Kenny Loggins. You will not find it anywhere on my father/daughter dance lists, because lyrically, it doesn’t really fit. But my dad used to sing it to me, so it was special to us. For those of you out there who were as lucky as I was to have a musician for a dad, or you just think lullabies are sweet, here are a few. Plus check out a super cute video which inspired this post because it reminded me of my own childhood.
1. Lullaby (Goodnight My Angel) – Billy Joel
Goodnight, my angel
2. You Can Close Your Eyes – James Taylor
Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising
3. Lullaby – Dixie Chicks
How long do you want to be loved
4. Kooks – David Bowie
Will you stay in our Lovers’ Story
5. Baby Mine – Alison Krauss
Baby mine, don’t you cry
6. Goodnight – The Beatles
Now it’s time to say good night
7. Lullaby – Creed
Hush my love now don’t you cry
8. A Father’s Way – Seal
I build a fence around you in a father’s way
Annnd… watch this video. It will make your day. (And if you don’t already know the song, listen to it. It’s a great song.
I recently realized, based on requests from various Your Soundtrack posts, that I need to create a few more posts/playlists with different types of music for cocktail/dinner time. It’s an area that I’ve sadly neglected. You can find a list of my personal favorites for the dinner hour here, and a list of indie favorites here. If you’re looking for classics, you can find them here, or country… it’s here. We are missing a few styles though, so we’ll start where life started… for me anyway.The 80s! I have to say this music makes me really happy. It wasn’t my first choice for my own wedding, but these songs just make me smile. So enjoy!
Btdubs… there are 80 tracks listed below. I didn’t even do that on purpose, it just happened. Magic.
Bryan Adams – All For Love
And there’s probably 80,000 more choices, but those are some faves. In case you have a super awesome 80s wedding like the one above. If you need 80s dance tunes, go here.
The Spotify playlist for the songs above is here.
Sad to say this is our last post featuring our Beatles shoot. I shall miss them. Enjoy this behind the scenes video from the shoot that I collaborated with Laura Hernandez Photography to make happen. And of course we could not have done it without our team of awesome vendors… but it was the two of us that dreamed it up.
