From This Moment

Today I was driving and the song “From This Moment” by Shania Twain came on. Do you ever hear a song and immediately get transported back somewhere?

Here is where I went:

This is my wedding reception. I started singing when I was 10. Music and singing have always been a HUGE part of my life. I wanted to find a way to work it into my wedding day but felt like singing during the ceremony would be awkward. So I decided to sing to my brand new hubby at my reception.

I chose from this moment because it was a big song at the time and summed up how I was feeling. Now it seems a bit on the cheesy side, but if you can’t be cheesy at your own wedding, what is the point.

I approached our worship pastor like the day before our wedding and asked him to play for me and he was game. And apparently he is also channeling Jack Nicholson wearing his sunglasses indoors…..

I know my eyes are closed in this one, but don’t I look happy? I had so much fun on my wedding day. It was one of my favorite days of my whole life. A million fantastic memories and so many people I love all in one place.

We are about to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary and I can’t believe how time has flown. Maybe I’ll post a few more pics leading up to the big day. What do you think?

  2. Aww! This is SO sweet! I’m sure your husband has fond memories of it too. I always dreamed of singing at my own wedding but #1 – I was too shy. and #2 – I don’t sing all that great. :)

  3. I loved this! I used to sing to my hubby all the time when we were dating and engaged. (Even though, I was also shy and did not sing at my wedding.) Life has happened, and I sing the wheels on the bus more than I sing anything else these days. You reminded me that I should sing for him again sometime soon. :-)
