Fifteen real couples share their first-dance stories.

The couple: Allison and Jacob

The songs: "Everything" by Michael Bublé and "The Nearness of You"

Who played them: David Clark and the Renegades

"'The Nearness of You' is special to us," says Allison. "Jacob sang it to me before proposing, so we had to use it. But since it's a bit slow, we decided to transition into a faster number. We chose 'Everything' because it was the number one hit on the radio when we started dating—it still reminds us of that first summer in love."
