Fifteen real couples share their first-dance stories.

The couple: Sharon and Harold

The song: "Something" by the Beatles

Who played it: iPod

"I'm a retired music teacher, and Harold loves music, so it's very important to both of us," says Sharon. "We chose this song because it was written by George Harrison, one of Harold's favorite songwriters. During our dance, it quickly dawned on me that our guests were singing along—I was amazed they all knew the words! Later, I found out that, unbeknownst to me, Harold had printed the lyrics on a sheet that read 'Top Secret,' and had our planner pass them out. It was such a sweet surprise!"
