Wedding Wednesday - with wild hearts, blue jeans & white t-shirts

We like to think the music we had at our wedding reflected us as a couple really well & with this in mind we wanted to make sure we picked our First dance & Parent's Dance carefully & didn't end up with a generic song that didn't mean much to us.
After a lot of thought we decided on The Gaslight Anthem's "Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts," the words were lovely & we've both followed Gaslight almost as long as we've been going out!
After sweet talking Adam we had a few little jive classes with the wonderfully talented Kev & Aggie who I've been lucky enough to get to know through Jive & who have been taking competitions by storm this year (they're multiple Freestyle & Showcase Champions)! Definitely check them out if you want some private lessons. They were great fun & tailor your dance to match your needs. We didn't want a fully choreographed routine just a few special moves we could whip out & in the end we were so pleased with it! I've included a video of the dance at the bottom of this post so check it out! :)
The music for our Parent's Dance was also thanks to Gaslight - "Once Upon A Time" (originally performed by Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise).
There were so many lyrics that made this song choice perfect & the mentions of Marvin Gaye & Elvis Presley made it even more special. We also swapped partners all the way through so we got to have some special time with everyone.
