Wedding Day Soundtrack

April 15, 2020

Who doesn't want an amazing soundtrack for your wedding day?! I am a huge music lover and one time won $100 bucks on a bet by accurately identifying a song by Boston but I digress. I always see post from brides on Facebook wanted help on music choices for certain aspects of their day especially first dances! So I wanted to create a list of some classics as well as some new favorite listens. What is important is that the song represents your story and relationship to one another whether it be up tempo or a cry fest (usually this is where I lose it). I know when I got married Michael and I definitely had some squabbles about what our dance would be but we managed. Check out this list below or head over to my Spotify Playlist to listen to them all.

More About Mariel

This blog is a small representation of my most current sessions, my clients love stories and all the adventures I am privilaged to go on! Ways to my heart include coffee, feeding me before I am "hangry" and anything shabby chic/rustic. My vintage camera collection grows everday and I am usually smiling and quoting random movies. Most importantly Mariel O. Photo celebrates love in all forms regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation & gender identity.
