Wedding Recap: The First Dance

Our first dance was to "Steady As We Go" by the Dave Matthews Band. This is not one of DMB's more well known songs, but I came across it last year in our "first dance song search" and thought it was a good choice for us.
"Steady As We Go"
Dave Matthews Band

I walk half way around the world, 
 Just to sit down by your side.
And I would do most anything girl, 
To be the apple of your eye.

Troubles they may come and go,
But good times they are the gold.
And if this road gets rocky girl,
Just steady as we go.
Any place you wanna go,
Know I'll be next to you.
If it's treasure baby you're looking for,
I'll search the whole world through.

Know troubles they may come and go,
But good times they're the gold.
So if the road gets rocky girl,
Just steady as we go.

When the storm comes,
You shelter me.
And I don't say a word,
And you know exactly what I mean.
In the darkest times,
You shine on me.
You set me free.
And keep me steady as we go.

So if your heart rings dry my love,
I will fill your cup.
And if your load gets heavy girl,
I will lift you up.

Troubles they may come and go,
But good times be the gold.
So if this road gets rocky girl,
Just steady as we go.
After we danced for awhile, the band leader, Gus, asked our bridal party to join us on the dance floor, and then asked everyone else to join in, too. 
With our siblings

Great choice of a song!! I like how different it is. I never would've thought of it, but it's a really creative choice.

This is one of my favorite DMB songs and actually was one of the songs we put on our wedding CD favors so I think it's a great choice!

It does sound like a good song. Judging from the pictures, the music blended in with the moment, giving you guys a magical moment together on your very first dance. Congratulations on the marriage!
