"Tonight I Celebrate My Love for You" by the "Wedding Singers"

Wonderful choice of wedding song that celebrates you as a couple and your love and commitment to each other. If you are looking for a slow song with good lyrics, this song is worth bookmarking.

Excerpt from "Tonight I Celebrate My Love for You":

"Tonight I celebrate my love for you

It seems the natural thing to do

Tonight no one's gonna find us

We'll leave the world behind us

When I make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you

And hope that deep inside you feel it too

Tonight our spirits will be climbing

To the sky lit up with diamonds

When I make love to you tonight"

      I got married last year and although our first dance was not 'conventional' it was very dramatic and had a lot of meaning for us. We chose 'Tonight Tonight' by the Smashing Pumpkins since it was the song that was playing when we first met.

      Fantastic selection of songs! As a professional musician, I must say that these days, many wedding couples are providing these kind of songs on a cd for their 1st dance of the night. At times, they even ask the band to perform them live which gives it that personal touch.
