Life as a... Score

So as I am brainstorming for these blog posts I would love to hear if there is anything my lovely blog readers would like to know =)
I am going to mix in some photography info/wedding info/decor/craft projects and pretty much anything you want! So please comment and let me know!

So I guess I need to start with how I decided to name my feature " Life as a..."
It really all stems from the song that my husband and I weren't introduced to at our Wedding!
It was to a Score, not a song.
I scoured for months trying to find that "perfect" song with no available luck :(
Then one day I was watching the movie "Life as a HOUSE"... & Poof there it was!
It was quite possibly the most beautiful song I ever heard. And I loved the title.
Since ultimately that is what we were doing, we were building our family from that day forward.
yes yes. mushy/slightly annoying statement :) I apologize!
But listen to it, it just sounds sooo happy and sweet, which is how we felt at that moment.
And oh so GIDDY =)

Our 1st dance at our wedding ;) (Thank you Aaron & Amy)

So that is how I just decided to play off of the Movie/Song ;) for these posts!
So I dont completely bore you I figured I would share some of the other music we played, since again I was a crazy bride and spent forever coming up with new "wedding music"!

I might as well share it with my brides :)

*please note that this was almost 2 years ago... lol... so try not to judge too much :)

It's been a while since I've listened to Mark Isham- Building a Family is beautiful. I love the rest of the songs you picked, too. Really interested to hear the quartet Nirvana...

I did the same thing! I spent forever and a day pouring over music choices b/c I didn't want the traditional classical songs. I ended up walking down to "Far, Far" by Yael Naim and we danced to "Stay with You" by John Legend. Not exactly groundbreaking, but it was very "us":)
