Getting Our Wedding Day Groove On


Disclosure: The following giveaway promotion & content has been sponsored by State Farm®.

Last week Mr. DrummerBoy and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary! It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since we said our vows in front of family and friends on a beautiful spring day.

Our wedding day was quite amazing, even deemed #weddingoftheyear on social media by many of our guests. While there were several things that made our day so special, one of them was undoubtedly the dancing. We grooved our way back up the aisle during the recessional to Chuck Brown’s Bustin’ Loose. We grooved our way into the reception to The Cosby Show Theme Song and then we got our ultimate groove on at the reception! Check us out in this clip from our wedding:


So much fun! Letting loose with my new husband and our family and friends on our wedding day was a great confidence boost and an awesome reminder to always dance as if no one is watching. =)

From Miss to Mrs with WeddingMix


As I shared before, Mr. DrummerBoy and I opted to use WeddingMix in lieu of hiring a professional videographer for our wedding day.  The WeddingMix free app and cameras make it a breeze to get every wedding memory in one spot and turn the best memories into an awesome custom edited video keepsake to enjoy forever. We are still in the process of finalizing our wedding day video (stay tuned!) but the great folks over at WeddingMix put together this cool clip of my bachelorette party and bridal shower, enjoy!



I had a blast celebrating with my family and friends. Thank you WeddingMix for capturing such a great time! My bachelorette party was held at Pretty Lady Pole Fit  – check them out for a fun and flirty workout! Tell Arminta that I sent you 🙂

#SongDiary – Wedding Edition

Happy Wednesday Sunflowers! Just a few more wedding posts and then I’ll settle into life as a happily married old lady, k? Today’s #SongDiary post is dedicated to our wedding songs =D

As serious music lovers Mr. DrummerBoy and I knew that music would play a major role in our special day, therefore we took the selection of our wedding songs pretty seriously. From the processional to our cd favors, each song, although non-traditional,  represents our personalities and our love.



Musiq Soulchild’s Settle For My Love was our ceremony processional, the song that accompanied our bridal party down the aisle. This song has an ethereal feel to it. It lulls the listener into the haze of what it feels like to be completely caught up in love. It was a great way to begin our day and set the mood for a super fun & flirty time!



After a surprise live drum roll by one of Mr. DrummerBoy’s friends (can we say perfect?!) Chrisette Michele’s Love Is You (Acoustic Version) is the song that my mom & I walked down the aisle to. Mr. DrummerBoy and I are both big Chrisette Michele fans. In fact, she can do no wrong in his eyes. We specifically chose the acoustic version of this song because of the purity of Chrisette’s voice without the production bells and whistles is a direct reflection of the love that we share.




Finally, making yet another vocal appearance Chrisette Michele serenaded our guests with  A Couple Of Forevers for our first dance. This song was an instant  pick from the moment we heard it: “Just a couple of forevers. A couple of forevers. I’m the only one, you’re the only one. Together ’til never.”

Prior to our wedding day, each of these songs held a special place in our hearts but they will now forever be a part of the soundtrack of our marriage 🙂 What songs did you choose or do you have in mind for your wedding day? Do any of these songs have special meaning or memories for you? Leave your sunshine below.
