Happy Walk Through Day Claire and Scott!

One of the most fun days of my job (besides the actual day of helping a bride fluff her dress and open the door with a flourish as she sees her soul mate for the first time on the wedding day) is the walk through. 

This is the last day they will be in the venue before it's officially their wedding day. This is the day when all of the ideas, plans, and pinterest boards come together. 

Today we celebrate Claire Carlisle and Scott Young as we make final preparations at Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club for their wedding August 11th. 

Check out Claire and Scott's engagement session by Peach Blossom Photography and get ready to wait with bated breath for their guaranteed-to-be-gorgeous wedding photos.

Music Monday: Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

Today's Music Monday is brought to you by our friends at Sam Hill Entertainment. We love working with them and pairing their bands with our couples.

The Georgian Terrace in December 2011.

From Sam Hill Entertainment's vantage point as the link between the couple and their wedding band, we put our eyes on a lot of special song requests. From the traditional to modern, tried-and-true to out of left field, we've seen them all -- and our bands have learned and performed them.

A newly married couple's first dance is a beautiful moment, one that everyone in attendance will remember. It can reflect a special meaning to the couple, or just be a classic love song. Here are some suggestions for first dance songs that are cool, aren't cheesy…and are easy to dance to.

Something old: Van Morrison's "Moondance" never disappoints. It's simple, beautiful & timeless.

Something new: Jack Johnson's "Better Together" is a laid back favorite.

Something borrowed: The President's impromptu rendition of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" has given this classic new life.

Something blue: Brad Paisley's cover of Ryan Adams' "When the Stars Go Blue" has always been a big hit as a first dance number for the Jangling Reinharts
