    I like that our first dance song wasnt what you hear all the time and was different. Ours was “Glory of Love” by Peter Cetera from the Karate Kid Prt 2. That was always the song my hubby dedicated to me when we first started dating and we knew we would dance to it on our wedding day. Everyone said it fit our story perfectly and all were crying during it. It was magical!
