Your Soundtrack | Heather (Tuscan Vineyard Wedding + Oldies and Christian Songs)

After mentioning in a post that I’m happy to help couples with the soundtrack to their weddings, I was contacted by several brides asking for help. So, a new trend around here will be “Your Soundtrack” posts, responding to these brides and offering up a playlist that I hope will at least give them somewhere to start. And, to make things more visually appealing, I thought I’d throw in an inspiration board for their weddings as well.:)

First up – Heather! Here’s what Heather had to say: “My fiance and I are getting married March 10, 2012. Our reception is going to be at a winery and for our theme we’re going for a Tuscan and vineyard style. Our quests will mostly be family members and some friends. We both really like music from the 50′s and 60′s (Dean Martin, Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra, etc). Music to keep people dancing is a must!:)Also, our faith has been a big part of our relationship and engagement so we would like that to be apparent on our wedding day, so if you know of any good Christian songs that would be awesome, as well! Thank you!”

I want to go to this wedding!

Wow Colleen – you seriously hit this inspiration board out of the park. *Dreamy*. I wanted to also wanted to share the song my sister walked into at her wedding (a Catholic ceremony) “Hallelujah” by Rufus Wainwright – it’s been in some movies and stuff [namely, Shrek lol] but it’s seriously a PERFECT song to walk down the aisle to. It’s so moving! GREAT playlist!! :)

Stephanie Elizabeth {Fab You Bliss} - November 22, 2011 - 3:48 pm

This is a great idea Colleen! And a very pretty inspiration board :-)

Heather - December 8, 2011 - 2:00 am

Wow, I don’t think you chose a single song that I didn’t like!! All of them are amazing! Thank you so much, this definitely helps! :) The inspiration board is nice too!
