Real Couple's Wedding Music Playlist:
Vané and Chad

Ceremony prelude:

"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," by J.S. Bach, performed by a string quartet.


"The ceremony music was very traditional, so we wanted our cocktail-hour music to have more personality," says Vané. She created a CD of upbeat jazz tunes like "Voodoo Queen," by Jambalaya Brass Band, a nod to Chad's home state of Louisiana.

First dance:

"Something," by the Beatles, performed by a band.

Father/Daughter dance:

"La Cumparsita," by Gerardo Matos Rodriguez. "My dad and I had only ever danced together once before—at a friend's wedding—so I knew we should do something outrageous," says Vané. "We went with a tango! Everyone thought we had rehearsed for weeks, but we just made it up as we went."

Mother/Son dance:

"The Man You've Become," by Molly Pasutti.

Extra touch:

To honor her family's heritage, Vané made a CD of Armenian and Arabic dance music to play at the reception.
