Hey, so Ilana and I got married back in May. It was awesome. If you're reading this, there's a pretty good chance that you were there.
It was a perfect day for many reasons. Further down that list (though maybe not as far as you'd think), it was a chance for us to subject a captive audience to a large number of our favorite songs.
For those of you hoping to stage Ilana and Aaron Wedding historical re-enactments, I thought I'd put all of our wedding playlists up on the blog.
Today: Reception! Goal: Classics. All ages on the floor. No slow songs.
