Moonlight and Love Songs:

Over many years I have truly enjoyed sharing music with others. I have put together (and received) a wide variety of mix tapes and playlists. Some were for (and from) close friends, some were to trade for other music mixes and make new discoveries, and some were simply for my own enjoyment. This one, the music that played at our wedding reception, is by far my favorite.

The morning of our wedding I handed my player off before the ceremony began. My instructions were that during the reception the music be just loud enough to be heard but quiet enough that one might need to concentrate just a bit to name the song. A tough demand but mission accomplished! In case you missed it, the tracks are listed down below.

Some of the songs on the list have a special meaning to Sarah and myself specifically, a few songs hold a special meaning for others, and many are simply enjoyable, lovely songs to be playing in the background of a wonderful and amazing day!
