the music

Being a musician (and having played and sung in countless weddings for years and years) I was pretty opinionated about the music. I wanted music meaningful to us. something simple and unique. I had a couple wonderfully talented musician friends play and sing, and the music hubby and I chose together was perfect.

Processional music was "Dawn" from the Pride and Prejudice movie. i'm a huge Jane Austen fan and that movie came out the same year we were married. The soundtrack is mostly solo piano and so romantic! It was perfect. and definitely unique.

Instead of the traditional wedding march, I knew I had to walk down the isle to our song, "Out of My League" by Stephen Speaks.

it's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away
and the feeling that i'm falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way
all the times i have sat and stared
as she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
and she purses her lips, bats her eyes as she plays,
with me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say
cause i love her with all that i am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
cause she’s all that I see and she’s all that I need
and i'm out of my league once again

it's a masterful melody when she calls out my name to me
as the world spins around her she laughs, rolls her eyes
and i feel like i'm falling but it's no surprise
cause i love her with all that i am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
but i'd rather be here than on land
yes she's all that i see and she's all that i need
and i'm out of my league once again

For the recessional we had another song that was meaningful to us, "Life Less Ordinary" by Carbon Leaf. 


  1. You should totally join in my Wedding Wednesday tomorrow :) Show off more of your wedding pics, they are beautiful!

  2. Angie, I love it all! The Pride and Prejudice soundtrack is one of my favorites (so gorgeous) and that wedding march is so cute. It's very you.

  3. I love how you have celebrated your anniversary by showing your wedding. I wish I could talk my husband into have a wedding every 10 years, just to do it over and over. :)
