ceremony tunes

In preparation for the BIG SWEATY BEAUTIFUL wedding photo post, I thought I’d prep you with a review of our ceremony tunes. Creating the ceremony was my favorite part of wedding planning – I spent tons of time putting together our vows, looking up passages, writing and re-writing messages for the program, designing my heart out and last but not least, selecting music for such an important day. Every little thing carried special meaning.

My childhood pastor drove hours to lead our ceremony … and I hadn’t seen her in 10 years! We are so thankful to have had Pastor Betsy share our wedding day. On top of that, all of our musicians held a special place in our hearts. Our lead vocalist, Robin, taught me piano as a tiny girl, and her musical partner, Craig, lead vocals with her at the church I attended growing up. Our feature musical duo consisted of Brent’s sister, Allison, and father, Doyle – all possessing master talent.  They were amazing and the music so beautiful, that guests almost forgot it was nearly 120 degress in the church! No. I’m not kidding. It was phenomenal. And sweaty. With heat like that you don’t even need dance moves to help break a sweat!

A heat index of 120 degress + no air conditioning + lots of people = conditions perfect for sweating through underwear

I’ll go ahead and move away from those hot details. Enjoy the tunes!
