Our Love Story’s Playlist
Some people believe everything happens for a reason. We take this mantra and another, to seek the good things in life, to heart.
This is how our love story played out through a five song playlist:
1. Lady Gaga, The Fame. “LoveGame”
Cupid played a game that would take five years in the making. After two years, Cupid decided to shot an arrow at a concert in Houston, Texas, featuring Lady Gaga. We had just began talking via OkCupid and our now Maid-Of-Honor pushed us into trading numbers which lead to our first date.
2. Lady Gaga, Born This Way. “Yoü and I”
Like most first dates, we both were a little awkward. It wasn’t until we both expressed our mutual love for music and how it brings a smile to your face even when having a bad day. Our dates continued, ranging from picnics on the floor of a college dorm room, to the floor of our first apartment togethe,r and eventually to the picnic where the proposal occurred.
3. Glee Cast, Glee: The Music, Vol.1. “Don’t Stop Believing”
On June 27, 2015, The United States Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. What we once thought would never be, suddenly became a reality. It was a birthday present for both of us as we celebrated at a Houston Pride.
4. Taylor Swift, 1989. “Welcome To New York”
With the debut of The Great Gatsby, the concept of elegance and love was an eye opening idea of exactly how we wanted to plan our wedding.
5. Kesha, Rainbow, “Rainbow”
Six years after Cupid played his game, we came together with family, friends, and loved ones at Kendall Plantation. Just as God places rainbows in the sky so we may see the beauty of all colors after a storm, we were granted our own rainbow. Now we look to the sky without any limit, and seek the good things in life.
