Wedding Bells (East) - - Real Weddings -

We wanted beau­ti­ful, out-ofthe-or­di­nary decor that was also ro­man­tic. To achieve that ef­fect we put em­pha­sis on birch wood with lots of flow­ers and can­dles. The pal­ette we chose was blush and grey, since th­ese colours are per­fectly matched and also worked well with the wood. My dress was re­ally gorgeous. For my wed­ding I wanted some­thing spe­cific, which rep­re­sented me—a ro­man­tic yet el­e­gant gown. I ended up with a back­less dress that has a lot of lace and a long, flow­ing train. We chose three songs for dif­fer­ent parts of our day. Dur­ing the cer­e­mony it was Pachel­bel’s “Canon in D,” the same song my par­ents used at their wed­ding. For the first dance we picked the tango tune “Santa Maria” by Gotan Project. Later my fa­ther whirled me around the dance floor to “My Girl” by the Temp­ta­tions. The best part about plan­ning the wed­ding was the big sur­prise we pre­pared for the guests. We wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent for the first dance, so we took eight group lessons to learn the ba­sics of tango. We then had 12 pri­vate lessons with a pro­fes­sional Ar­gen­tine tango dancer. Our first dance segued into a great party!

WE A LIT­TLE CHOSE THREE SOME­THING SONGS FOR HERE DIF­FER­ENT ABOUT THE PARTS WED­DING OF OUR DAY. FROM JULIE:
