First Dance at our wedding to Josh Groban's For Always
First Dance at our wedding to Josh Groban's For Always


My husband and I are a very romantic couple. Our story has an interesting twist in that we knew each other 35 years ago, and reconnected again in 2004. He is the love of my life, and we are aware that we lost a lot of time together. Because of that, we try to make all the time we do have together as romantic and special as possible. When we first started dating, my now husband gave me a Josh Groban CD and asked me to pay special attention to the words in certain songs. I was hooked! We are huge Josh Groban fans now. His music is just SO romantic, and so are we.

When we got married in 2010, we were looking for a song that was romantic, but that would also fit us. We didn't want a cookie-cutter song that 1000 other couples had used. We both like Josh Groban, and have all of his CDs. One day, I was listening to a Josh Groban CD in my car and heard "For Always." At the time, I didn't know it was from the movie A.I., and since I have never seen that movie, I only knew that Josh Groban sang it.

When I listened to the words, it brought tears to my eyes because it felt like it fit us perfectly. My husband ( then my fiancé) travels quite a bit for his business. I am unable to go with him due to vacation constraints with my job, and I have three teenaged children who need me around to drive them to activities, etc. Many times I dream about Chuck while he is away...and therefore the first few lines of the song hold true for me..."I close my eyes, and there in the shadows, I see your light. You come to me out of my dreams..."

Later in the song, the lyrics are about being together forever: "from this day on, I know that I'll never be alone" That too, was perfect for us. We are both Christians, and when I pledged my love to him on our wedding day, I knew it would be for eternity. I had been married once before, to a man who was not a Christian, and it was not a good marriage. I never thought I would find someone that I would want to be married to forever. But I knew that with Chuck. We did use it for our first dance song, and it was perfect. If you want to hear Josh Groban sing it, please play the video below.

And may you find (or have found) your perfect love, as well as your perfect first dance song!

Please feel free to share your first dance song in the comments. I am a romantic at heart and would love to know what song you chose during those very special moments.


If you are looking for a first dance song for your wedding, here are a few that have been popular in the past, or are popular now, to give you a head start:

  • "At Last" by Etta James
  • "We've Only Just Begun" by The Carpenters
  • "It Had to Be You" by Dooley Wilson
  • "Can't Help Falling in Love With You" by Elvis Presley

      Our song was The Power of Love, by Air Supply

      The whispers in the morning

      Of lovers sleeping tight

      Are rolling like thunder now

      As I look in your eyes

      I hold on to your body

      And feel each move you make

      Your voice is warm and tender

      A love that I could not forsake

      'Cause I am your lady

      And you are my man

      Whenever you reach for me

      I'll do all that I can

      Lost is how I'm feeling, lying in your arms

      When the world outside's too

      Much to take

      That all ends when I'm with you

      Even though there may be times

      It seems I'm far away

      Never wonder where I am

      'Cause I am always by your side

      'Cause I am your lady

      And you are my man

      Whenever you reach for me

      I'll do all that I can

      We're heading for something

      Somewhere I've never been

      Sometimes I am frightened

      But I'm ready to learn

      Of the power of love

      The sound of your heart beating

      Made it clear

      Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on

      Is light years away

      'Cause I am your lady

      And you are my man

      Whenever you reach for me

      I'll do all that I can

      We're heading for something

      Somewhere I've never been

      Sometimes I am frightened

      But I'm ready to learn

      Of the power of love
