J & A Chronicles: Wedding Pt VII
Reception: Special Dances

Immediately after the toasts, we went into the special dances: First Dance, Father/Daughter, and Mother/Son. We thought this was a good idea so that the cake could be distributed and eaten while we danced. Unfortunately I didn't end up getting any cake after we fed one another during the cake cutting. =/
I let J pick a LOT of the details, especially for the wedding. He picked all the songs for the entrance, cake cutting, first dance and the garter removal/toss (which we will get to later)
The song he picked for our first dance was Old Bird Dog by Crossin' Dixon. Originally we were going to have the lead singer there to sing it for us but he couldn't make it. So we went with it anyway.  It would definitely NOT have been my choice but it didn't matter =)     
    
I asked my dad to pick the song for the Father/Daughter dance. He listened to a lot of songs and asked for my opinion.  I insisted that the song needed to be his choice as the dance is to honor him. He eventually picked She's On Her Way by Phil Vassar.  Go listen to it; it really is an amazing song! I cry every time I hear it.
  
I'm not sure how J and his mom picked their song. I didn't really have a hand in that at all. They eventually decided on My Wish by Rascal Flatts.

Happy Friday and First Day of April!

We did a joint father/daughter and mother/son dance to "My Wish." We didn't want to be the sole spotlight. Haha.
