2: Damn It Feels Good to be A Gangsta - checking out the girlies and Chasing Cars... | When They Met... | Somewhere Over the Rainbow I will meet Mr. Right, although not in these washed up bars

3: Crazy For You, my glass of Bacardi Wait! Is that Def Leppard? Hmmm, would it be odd to spontaneously dance to Pour Some Sugar On Me? | On Their First Date... | Come Away With Me to a dinner meant for two. By the end of the night you will think, Jason, I Can't Take My Eyes Off of You.

4: I am Lucky to be done with girls who are nothing more than lunatics in pearls. | At Last I found a man who treats me like the princess my mother says I am. | When They Fell In Love...

5: Equipped with a diamond, Jason dropped to one knee. He asked his lady love, please Marry Me. | Nissa accepted with a smile, her eyes brightly lit. Although she thought this is the End of the World as We Know It! | When They Got Engaged...

6: Truly, Madly, Deeply, with all of my heart I love you. Your smile, your warm heart; it took Only Time for my dreams to come true. | Crazy Little Thing Called Love, today you make me your wife. I simply had no choice, Can't Help Falling In Love with our perfect life. | On Their Wedding Day...

8: Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol ***Jason fondly recalls this song from his six month stint in Germany. The lyrics were all he could understand in the Irish bar where they kind of spoke English. (If you consider a thick Gaelic accent followed by laughter and a pint of Guinness English) | Over the Rainbow - Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole ***Jason & Nissa will spend 16 fabulous days in Hawaii following their May 12th wedding. (Insert feelings of jealousy here) | Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta - Geto Boys ***Jason claims he is from the hood...as in Hoodridge, more commonly known as Woodridge. Ahem, you are currently in Hoodridge. Does your safety feel threatened? No? I didn't think so. | Song Selections & Credits

9: Can't Take My Eyes Off of You - Lauryn Hill ***This song was added to the mix to remind Jason Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige are two separate people. | Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard ***Nissa is a HUGE fan of 80's hair bands. So much so, the couple spent their third date at a Poison concert...in the second row! (Again, insert jealousy here) | Come Away With Me - Norah Jones ***One of the couple's favorite pastimes is traveling anywhere and everywhere they can. Trips to date include: Arizona, Seattle, Napa Valley, Playa del Carmen, Mexico, Orange County, Las Vegas, Wisconsin Dells, Miami, a Caribbean cruise to Bahamas, St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and Turks & Caicos and Hawaii. | Crazy For You - Madonna ***Madonna is one of Nissa's favorite singers from a young age. This dates all the way back to when she was young enough to think the lyrics to Material Girl were in fact Mama Cheerio Girl.

10: At Last - Etta James ***Jason & Nissa found each other right before they hit their 30's. According to the best man, Adam, if you are a woman and not in a serious relationship before you hit age 30, you may as well accept your fate and die an old spinster. (PS, single ladies over 30, Adam is the guy seated next to the groom...just a FYI) | Lucky - Jason Mraz & Colby Caillat ***This song came out right after Jason left to Germany for 6 months. Nissa listened to Lucky often while waiting for Jason's return. | Marry Me - Train ***A beautiful song to complete the bridal processional. (Please note, the bridal heels are high. Should the bride fall, allow the beauty of the song to distract you from your urge to burst into laughter or an uncomfortable gasp) | It's the End of the World as We Know It - REM ***Is it really a pure coincidence that Jason will finally walk down the aisle in the same year the Mayans predicted the world to end?

11: Truly, Madly, Deeply – Savage Garden ***Jason had to beg and plead to get this song onto the soundtrack. I suppose he should get to make at least one decision in the wedding planning process. But it ends here! Sparkly heeled foot planted firmly to the ground! | Only Time – Enya ***Nissa waited patiently for the proposal. No matter what kind of tall tales the groom tries to relay, 3 years is a long time in woman-over-30 years. My mother was already searching local shelters for grandcats. | Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Queen ***The couple resides within walking distance of Wicker Park. Although the video was shot in the early 80’s, the way those crazy kids dress and dance in the video is reminiscent of modern day Wicker Park. Pure nostalgia... every time we leave our condo. | Can’t Help Falling In Love – Elvis ***Elvis sang this song to his grandmother in the movie Blue Hawaii. I am not attempting to reiterate our upcoming 16 days in Hawaii (wink, wink). This song also shows significance since Jason’s maternal great grandmother would have turned 110 years old on our wedding date, May 12th. (Not the reason all of you were thinking, huh? Shame on you!)
