You Make My Dreams Come True: One Last Dance

The night was coming to a close, and the DJ totally surprised us by having all of our remaining guests join us on the dance floor and surround us in a big circle. We weren’t exactly sure what he was doing until he started playing ‘Then’ by Brad Paisley and told us to soak in minutes of our reception surrounded by people who love us.


Both of our photographers had already left, but BM S was there to capture it. I’m SO thankful, because this was honestly one of my favorite parts of the day and these pictures (although we’re dripping with sweat and my hair is frizzy) are some of my most treasured.

I love that you can see David’s brother and our SIL L with their arms around each other – I made the slideshow for their wedding a year before, and used ‘Then’ as the song for the pictures of them together. :)

And then David’s cousin yelled his congratulations and best wishes to us:

David sang to me the entire time. His face in this picture just makes me smile:

And with that, the song, and our reception that we’d poured so much into, was over. This next series of pictures is my absolute favorite:

  1. I love that your DJ made the last dance special for you guys!

  2. What a sweet sweet moment! So beautiful. Happy [almost] anniversary :-)

  3. That was our last dance song too. :) Some of my favorite photos came from that dance!

  4. We played "Then" for our last song too! I absolutely loved our last dance. It was the most romantic, deep in love, dance I've ever had with my husband. I always look back to that moment of our wedding and smile. It was magical and pure bliss. I see you felt those same feelings!

  5. What is the font you used for your invites?? I love it
