Wedding Music

First of all, when talking about your wedding remember that it is YOUR wedding.  You can do whatever you want.  Music is a very important part of most peoples lives and it plays an important part in your wedding.  Music is the soundtrack to your life.  There were a few songs that marked important moments in my relationship with Ruben and I decided to have those songs in my wedding.  I originally was going to walk down to the Wedding March but only if my brother could play it on the guitar.  However, we looked up the origin of the Wedding March and it came from Richard Wagner's opera "Lohengrin." You can google it to find more information about it but Wagner was amused when the Bridal Chorus made its way into church services. If you read about the opera you will see why.  Needless to say, I decided against it and decided on some not so traditional music; being that my wedding was not traditional in any way.  The song that everyone walked down to was "Mi Bendición" by Juan Luis Guerra. This was one of the first songs that Ruben dedicated to me plus the lyrics were perfect for the beach. These are the English lyrics to the song:

My bleesing

They say that the flowers wouldn't stop singing
Your name, your name, my dear
That the waves at the sea made a shawl for you
From foam and clouds and water lilies
Not being satisfied, the moon
Came down to see your heart
And after seeing you, the moon said it had never seen a
Brighter, more beautiful sun than my blessing
Having you, kissing you, holding hands with you while walking
My love, to look at you, to whisper that I love you in your ear
I tell you, this is such a blessing
They say that the hands would clap whenever they heard
Your footsteps, my dear
That the rivers would overflow whenever they saw
your eyes, your divine eyes
Not being satisfied, a star
Came down to see your heart
And after seeing you, the star said it had never seen
a full moon more beautiful than my blessing
Having you, kissing you, holding hands with you while walking
My love, to look at you, to whisper that I love you in your ear
I tell you, this is such a blessing
When you talk to me I hear a chorus of love
For two
The falsetto that comes with those I love yous attached to
Your voice, such a blessing
Having you, kissing you, holding hands with you while walking
My love, to look at you, to whisper that I love you in your ear
I tell you, this is such a blessing
Such a blessing...
You can listen to the song here:
During the lazo, which is a Latin tradition, and the communion we had some friends play and sing "Your Love is Like" by Rick Pino.  This song is one of my  favorite worship songs of all times and it was a wonderful selection for this special moment between God, Ruben, and myself.
For the end of the wedding instead of returning down the isle we kissed and walked through the bamboo arch, towards the ocean, in which the wedding party and family followed while the Hawaiian version of "Somewhere of the Rainbow" was playing.  Again, very appropriate for the beach and it was a song we both liked.

Choosing songs that meant something to us made our special day even more memorable.
