  1. Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley – This 1961 pop song is perfect for your romantic first dance. The King of Rock and Roll is a staple for a rockabilly wedding or for couples who just love dancing to the oldies.
  2. I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith- This song was created for the box office smash, Armageddon, in 1998. The Aerosmith ballad was such a hit that it stayed number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks. This song is perfect for those cheeky redneck wedding receptions.
  3. “Such Great Heights” by Iron & Wine– This delicate song is perfect for our Brooklyn couples throwing a hipster wedding reception. For the artistically inclined, the poetic words are a beautiful homage to your wedding day.
  4. “Stay With You” by John Legend- This 2004 song off album, Get Lifted, is a great option for your first dance as man and wife. The romantic lyrics, “love so beautiful and divine”, will make everyone tear up with joy as you and your groom waltz on the dance floor.

Our wedding photography team at Le Image Inc hopes you found this article helpful for your wedding planning. The first dance is such a special moment, it’s so important to pick a song that truly expresses your feelings for each other. Congratulations to all the couples out there!
