10 First Dance Songs

Here are a few ideas that might be a little bit different or classics that are too good to pass up. After photographing weddings for so many years, it’s a settled fact that the first dance is one of my favorite moments to photograph. A good song helps the moment.


You Are the Best Thing – Ray LaMontange
The way you move me, it’s crazy // It’s like you see right through me // And make it easier // Believe me, you don’t even have to try // Oh, because // You are the best thing

Harvest Moon – Neil Young
Because I’m still in love with you // I want to see you dance again // Because I’m still in love with you // On this harvest moon

Unchained Melody – Lykke Li
I need your love, I need your love // Godspeed your love to me

Can’t Help Falling in Love with You – Ingrid Michaelson
Like a river flows surely to the sea // Darling so it goes //Some things are meant to be

You’re the Reason I Come Home – Ron Pope
People dream of what you and me // Have found… // Effortlessly // You’re the reason I come home

18 The Jaxson Wedding

Good Enough – Benjy Davis Project
All that I can think is this is a whole lot better than good enough

How Sweet it is – James Taylor
I needed the shelter of someone’s arms and there you were  // I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were

Make You Feel My Love – Adele
I could make you happy, make your dreams come true // There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do // Go to the ends of this Earth for you // To make you feel my love

Come Rain or Come Shine – Ray Charles
You gonna love me, like no one love me // Come rain or come shine

Wonderwall – Ryan Adams
I don’t believe that anybody // Feels the way I do, about you now
