Wedding Muzaks

Thanks again to everyone who attended the wedding, and made it such a memorable event. We really wanted the wedding to reflect our personalities, and this guided many of our decisions during the planning process. We had a few positive comments about the music we chose for the wedding, so I thought we would share our song lists.

Dinner Music

For background music during the dinner, we wanted to play songs that we would play if we hosted a party in our house.

In The Waiting Line - Zero 7
Somewhere Only We Know - Keane
Omaha - Tapes 'n Tapes
The Crane Wife 3 - The Decemberists
Swimmers - Broken Social Scene
The Golden Age - Beck
Rebellion (Lies) - Arcade Fire
Swallowed In The Sea - Coldplay
So Here We Are - Bloc Party
Details Of The War - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
I Will Follow You Into the Dark - Death Cab For Cutie
I Feel It All - Feist
Robbers - Cold War Kids
Even Tho - Joseph Arthur
If The Brakeman Turns My Way - Bright Eyes
The Radio's Hot Sun - Handsome Furs

I cut and faded the songs using GarageBand. If anyone is putting together a slideshow, I would be happy to help, but in hindsight, I would not recommend putting together the slideshow for your own wedding. I don't know why I was so stubborn, but I should've accepted help when it was offered.

We're married!

Hi everyone,

We're back from our super awesome 2 weeks of wedding prep, wedding activities, post-wedding recovery, and Montreal mini-moon. We have a lot to update and share, and while we're sad that the wedding's over, we're excited to get back to more normalcy and OFTs and exploring Chicago. It's back to work for us tomorrow, but here's what you can look forward to in the very near future:

Wedding recaps (with photos) - it was such a fun and emotional weekend, there is a lot to say and describe! Professional pictures won't be in for a while, but we will post others in the meantime. We got some great photos from some of you at the brunch, but many of you have mentioned that you had more to share. Please comment below or get in touch with one of us if you have pics from the wedding that you'd like us to have.

Montreal minimoon recap (with photos) - our post-wedding travels were built around relaxation and food (what else?)! Who won the battle of The Newlyweds vs. Poutine? You be the judge. How was the foot of the pig at Au Pied de Cochon? Only photos will tell.

More OFTs - now that the weather is warming up and our nights and weekends are not automatically dedicated to wedding tasks, we should have regular fun things to report on.

Bacon updates - If you're keeping count, we still have 5 months of bacon to go, so the tasting and ranking continues. We had to postpone the May delivery because of the wedding, so we should be getting two batches pretty close to each other (yikes!)

So stay with us, and you know we love it when you chime in, so feel free to leave comments anytime!
