How Wonderful Life Is: We Dance

Right after cutting our cake (and after I managed to gag mine down), we made our way to the dance floor for our first dance as husband and wife.

This is always one of my favorite moments of a wedding reception. My someday-imaginary-first-dance is one of the few wedding-related things I daydreamed about since I was a little girl. I can remember being younger than 10 years old and proclaiming to my aunt in the car one day that “Truly, Madly, Deeply” by Savage Garden was going to be my first dance song at my wedding, and she promised she’d hold me to it. Luckily she broke that promise, and we were able to select a better song.

We stepped onto the dance floor, pulled each other close, and began our dance.

Press play and listen along!

It’s a little bit funny
This feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can
Easily hide
I don’t have much money, but,
Boy, if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor”¦
But then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a
Travelin’ show
I know it’s not much
But it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody
This is your song
It may be quite simple but
Now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

As usual with us, there was laughter. This is everyone’s favorite picture from our wedding. :)

I sat on the roof
And kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses,
Well, they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind
While I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on

In between giggles, we sang to each other.

So excuse me forgetting
But these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten
If they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway, the thing is,
What I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

Our first dance definitely lived up to all my girlhood dreams and more. Like the ceremony, it was another part of the day where everyone else in the room faded away, and it was just the two of us. And it was perfect.

    I love the pictures.
    Truly madly deeply is mine and Mr. Toadstool’s song, but we decided to dance to another song as our first dance.
