the other night a bride and groom explained that they were looking for just the right song for a teenaged family member to sing during their ceremony. a challenge? i think so! my husband and i spent about four hours on youtube and itunes trying to find interesting and original songs that would work for them. i realized that they would also be great first dance songs. here they are (and a few others). let me know what you think!
