wedding wednesday: musical interlude

We really wanted to involve my husband's sister (I'd just say SIL but I now have two of those) in the wedding. She's a really great singer so we thought it would be perfect to have her sing a song during the ceremony. Then, of course, we had to search for an appropriate song. After we found that, I couldn't for the life of me find an instrumental version. My SIL had one of her friends learn the song on piano and record it. How awesome is that?! Here's the song:

During her performance there were some technical difficulties. First, the music was so quiet and difficult for her (or anyone) to hear. But she still started the song. It was the first time I had heard her sing it (I think that's called faith). She was doing a wonderful job when my extremely-soon-to-be husband started crying. The only time he cried that day. He looks at her and she looks at him and she busts out laughing. I don't think she realized he was seriously crying, just that he was making faces. Our photographer did an amazing job capturing it. (Might I add that in addition to being a great singer, she cleans up real nice...)


And the lyrics, if you're intersted:

We Are Man and Wife by Michelle Featherstone


All the things you are to me
Darling you have set me free
I'll always give you what you need
And what you deserve
All the joy and all this love
I know that it is from above
And now together there's enough
To fill this world

'Cause you are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
And now we're man and wife

All the things you will do
You know I'm standing next to you
And darling I will see you through
The rest of our lives
With you beside me
I have won
I'm glad I've waited for so long
There is no doubt
That you are the one for me

You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life

And everytime
There will be things
Everything is going to be fine
Now you're in my life

So I give you heart and soul
It's yours to take wherever you go
And through the years
You'll always know
It's yours to keep
God has blessed this sacred vow
And angles high above look down
And see the two of us have found
The perfect love

You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
Yeah
You are the love of my life

Now we're man and wife
We're man and wife
Now we're man and wife
We're man and wife
We're man and wife
