Mr. and Mrs. Wells

Okay y’all this wedding was a BLAST! Meet this power couple Leslie and Chris Wells. Leslie is in Law School at Touro Law and Chris works for the NYPD, these folks are superheros! It was a ball having them in Natchez to celebrate this joyous occasion. You could feel the love these families had for this beautiful couple. I wanted to highlight one of my favorite parts of their ceremony, the music. Leslie and Chris had the most unique playlist for their ceremony and I LOVED it. This fun loving couple knows how to throw a great party!

Honor Seating:

That’s What’s Up — Lennon and Maisy Stella

Having this song set the tone  for the ceremony was perfection. And these sisters voices, hello angels. Can they do a cover on every song ever written?

I’ll be the church, you be the steeple.

You be the king, I’ll be the people. 

I’ll be the sun, you be the shinning.

You be the clock, I’ll be the timing. 

You be the book, I’ll be the binding.

You be the words, I be the rhyming. 

You’ll be the bird, I’ll be the feather

We’ll be best Friends forever. 

You’ve got my love to lean on darling, that’s whats up.

Love the words of this song, anyone looking for wedding vow ideas? Here ya go. Literally repeat said lyrics and there you have it.

Wedding Party:

Hail Holy Queen –Deloris & The Sisters – Sister Act

Check out minute 1.05

Officially the coolest song ever for your wedding party processional. Everyone was grooving and once that clap started, oh my! You couldn’t help but sway to this song. There wasn’t one guest that didn’t have a huge smile spread across their face.

Bridal Entrance:

At Last –Etta James

Click Here to Listen! — At Last

Y’all when this beautiful bride exited a vintage Rolls Royce wearing a stunning art deco gown, jaws dropped. This song evokes all kinds of emotion and Leslie looked A M A Z I NG.

Tree Ceremony: 

I Found You –Alabama Shakes

Click Here to Listen! — I Found You

Leslie and Chris had all kinds of special touches during their ceremony. And I LOVED this one. We’ve seen several unity ceremonies, but have you ever seen a tree planting ceremony? It’s amazing! They took soil from both of their family homes and poured it together into a container with a tree that they will plant. So incredibly sweet and sentimental. Love the symbolism of the family soil and planting their own roots together as couple.

And these lyrics – Chills.

This isn’t sometimes.

Yeah, it’s for always. 

Cause I remember them days

I waited so patiently

For God to bring someone who’s gonna be good to me

And then he blessed my soul

Recessional:

This Magic Moment –Mia Dawson

How perfect for the bride and groom to have their first kiss and exit to this.  This was a magical moment!

This magic moment

So different and so new

Was like any other

Until I kissed you

This magic moment 

While your lips are close to mine 

Will last forever 

Forever till the end of time.

Needless to say this playlist was stellar. For everyone reading this go ahead and make your mix tape, I know I am.

Huge thank you to Leslie and Chris for including me in their big day! What a joy it was getting to work with them and their family.

Congratulations and best wishes Mr. and Mrs. Wells!
