I get asked a lot what my top wedding first dance songs are. Not only do I love photography & weddings, but I am a HUGE music lover! I love all kinds. In my opinion, music is free therapy! I’m always so curious what song my couples select for their First Dance. I’ve been asked quite a few times for song suggestions & I’ve even been honored to help a few couples pick out their special songs!
Because I get asked this so often, I thought I’d come up with a list of my favorite First Dance Songs. This list a nice mix of current hits, past loves and forever classics.
DISCLAIMER: This is in no way a complete list. At the time of sitting down to write this post, these are the songs that came to mind that touched my heart.
