We had a Destination Wedding at the beach so we used Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World.”

@brideatbeach: I LOVE “Sea of Love.” We used Kamakawiwo’ole’s version as our recessional.

I recently decided that I’m obsessed with the idea of walking in to Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop by Landon Pigg.  It’s cute, and it just has that flowy beat that I think I want…love it!!

I walked to Hymne by Vangelis. I still get tears when I listen to it.

I’m thinking about walking into Yiruma’s River Flows In You. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhN7SG-H-3k

I think it might be affiliated with Twilight, so I don’t want everyone to be all like “omg, they must really like Twilight….”

I’m walking into a piano arrangment of the hymn “Come thou fount” by David Neuve, it is one of my favorites to begin with and it is a beautiful arrangment of it.

  • Wedding: October 2012 - Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom

I will be walking down the aisle to Debussy’s Clair de Lune (if you’re not familiar, it’s recognizable as the song at the very end of Ocean’s 11, as the guys are all standing around the fountain). It’s been our song from the very beginning, and I used to be self-conscious about it since it didn’t have lyrics and wasn’t a typical “our song” kind of piece. But every time it comes on, he drops what he’s doing to kiss me and spend those few minutes just being together. So excited about it!

@Miss Lemmons: This might be my favorite song ever. What a gorgeous choice!

@SuperKate: We are doing Iz’s version of that song, too. The wedding won’t be on the beach, but I’m crazy about ukuleles, so it still fits : )

I walked in to Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am” and my bridal party entered to Jack Jonhson’s “Better Together” and Jason Mraz’s “Lucky.” I had a hard time picking between the three but was happy with the way it turned out. 🙂

I walked to a song called “True Love” by Miranda Wong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzvhPcvnxcc. When I was planning my wedding I just happened to come across her you tube page and fell in love. I hired a pianist, and bought the sheet music off her website. Swoon, it still makes me tear up.
