What’s your song? Share a video if there is one?
It’s called “Take Her in Your Arms” and it’s off of a Celtic compilation album that Jon had when we were dating. I heard it the first time and we were hooked. We also didn’t have dancing at our wedding so we’ll use this one as “our song”.
Did you always have a song or did you have to find one?
This just kind of became our song after we first met in person for the first time in March 2000.
Why did you pick this song?
Well, we’re huge Celtic music fans. (Well… we’re Celtophiles in general.) It’s completely silly and snarky but it has a great message — “Take her in your arms and tell her that you love her/ Take her in your arms and hold that woman tight/ Won’t you take her in your arms and tell her that you love her/ If you’re going to love a woman then be sure and do it right!” It’s honestly that simple.
What does it mean to you?
It’s just a reminder that love doesn’t have to be a huge and complicated undertaking.
How was the meaning changed since you first chose it?
It hasn’t changed. We still love it and we still believe in the simplicity of it.
Won’t you share a picture of you two dancing? (Doesn’t have to be a wedding picture!)
We don’t have one of us dancing so here’s just a wedding one.
