Baker Wedding: First Dances.

Introducing for the first time, "Mr. and Mrs. Cameron Baker!"

Obsessed with the clear top tent we added on and the chandelier.
For our first dance, we danced to "Heavenly Day" by Patty Griffin.
I have been obsessed with this song since the first time I heard it, which was when I was working for a company that booked bands and DJ's for weddings and events.
I can't even listen to the song anymore without getting happy tears in my eyes.
"Oh heavenly day, all the clouds blew away
Got no trouble today with anyone
The smile on your face I live only to see
It's enough for me, baby, it's enough for me
Oh, heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day"
"Tomorrow may rain with sorrow
Here's a little time we can borrow
Forget all our troubles in these moments so few
All we've got right now, the only thing that
All we really have to do
Is have ourselves a heavenly day
Lay here and watch the trees sway
Oh, can't see no other way, no way, no way
Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day"
 "No one at my shoulder bringing me fears
Got no clouds up above me bringing me tears
Got nothing to tell you, I've got nothing much to say
Only I'm glad to be here with you
On this heavenly, heavenly, heavenly, heavenly
Heavenly day, all the trouble's gone away
Oh, for a while anyway, for a while anyway
Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day"

My Dad and I danced to "My Girl" by The Temptations.
It has always been "our song."

It was all going swimmingly, until we attempted our first twirl....
Yep, he stepped on my dress. :) I like to give him a hard time about it, but it really wasn't that big of a deal. My facial expressions are pretty hilarious though.

We tried it again with success.
And ended with a dip..which, clearly, I was nervous about.
Cameron and his mom danced to "You've Got A Friend" by James Taylor

This picture makes my heart melt.

  11. Congrats!! You're such a beautiful bride. Patty Griffith has such an incredible voice; I don't think I know this that song though, so I can't wait to listen.
