What a beautiful church first of all!!!! I personally really like the second version because of the violins. I think if you love this song, what matters is what it means to you! I think its about love, but I never heard it associated with 9/11 so I may have different associations with it than most people. I remember the fast version and dancing to it at school dances hahaha!

I really hate the DJ Sammy version, mostly because I am a big Bryan Adams fan. I don’t think this song is about loss at all, and growing up I always thought I would use this at my wedding. Go for it!

*Not to be annoying, but the song is actually just called “Heaven” 🙂

I never heard the song associated with 9/11 but I do feel like it is about loss. It isn’t so much the words as the tone and music… its melancholy. It is a beautiful song and if you love it I think you should use it… but I have always felt it was kind of a sad song.

I SO feel you.  We are using Wilco’s “On and On and On” as our processional song and have nothing but negative views from the family members we have told (so finally stopped giving people any info).  It is a really beautiful song about how love lasts beyond life, but it was written by Jeff Tweedy for his father after his father’s wife had passed away, so everyone keeps telling me that it is too sad for a wedding.

You know what?  I don’t care.  I love it, it works for us, and it was one of the very few things FH felt strongly about including.  So it’s just too bad for the people who think it’s too sad.  They can get over it. 

So – use your song!  Your wedding ceremony is about YOU and FH.  That’s it.  No other opinions needed.

(Off my soapbox now.)

what a beautiful church wow–i need to step my game up…I like the 2nd version better is seems more peaceful and angelic…love the songs and to me it is not associated to death at all.  It’s very emotional in a sense and refelects deep love I love the song and now u have me considering it for my wedding, it is sure to get your guests tear up but out of happiness as the song is deep in the way it speaks about love.  Go for it if it relects you and ur fiance love go for it..
