Fifteen real couples share their first-dance stories.

The couple: Hannah and Christopher

The song: "Care" by Kaada

Who played it: DJ Lady Speedstick

"When Chris and I began dating we started emailing each other songs," says Hannah, "so we have a collection of tunes from the time we've spent together. We used a lot of them in our wedding, including 'Care' by Kaada, which became our first-dance song. Chris has a six-year-old daughter, so after our first dance, he had a special father-daughter dance with her. As a symbolic gesture, I planned to join them on the dance floor, but before Chris could suggest it, she came up with the idea herself!"
