Jim and I didn't dance at our wedding reception. We didn't have a first dance, a father-daughter, nor a mother-son dance. We spent four hours greeting our guests in my parents' front yard on a hot July evening in the longest receiving line ever. We had music played by our friend the band director on the living room piano that we carried out into the driveway. I didn't even think about dancing. But that was a looonnnggg time ago.
Dances are a special part of weddings, and it's fun to plan the music, the moves, and the celebration on the dance floor. Adam and Courtney's first dance was to Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran.
So baby now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are.
How could that beautiful woman with you
Be the same freckle faced kid that I knew...
I loved her first, I held her first,
And a place in my heart will always be hers...
And I prayed that she'd find you some day
But it's still hard to give her away
I loved her first.
Adam and I danced to Let Them Be Little. He was the Little in our family. The youngest. My baby.
So, let them be little, cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh just let them be little.
Nana and Boomie were the last couple dancing… almost 58 years.
Some of the little boys prefer gaming to dancing.
Shylah has a little dance with George, son of friends Bret and Amy. Good practice.
And there's Big Jon...
