Wedding Song(s): From This Moment On and Your'e Still The One (Shania Twain)

Being that this is the first song post for this blog, I figured it would be nice to start with the two songs my wife and I used at our wedding. The story behind these songs is long story so I will offer an abbreviated version here. My wife and I were living in St. Louis at the time while I finished my Master's Degree and we were planning a wedding from there to take place here in Milwaukee. We knew we wanted You're Still the One by Shania Twain (lyrics) because of what lyrics meant; it was “our” song. We came home for a weekend to attend a wedding showcase knowing we would have to sign a band for the reception that day. After viewing them all, we found the band we liked called “Everyday People” (yet another memory there from a song) but unfortunately they played From This Moment On (lyrics) and not the one we wanted. We were OK with that since both songs were nice. So fast forward a few months to the wedding reception when we found out that the band now played Still the One so we were able to get both songs to dance to at our wedding. Anytime I hear either one of those songs it immediately takes me back to our wedding day which was beautiful (as was the bride). Do either of these songs bring any memories to you? Let me know.
