“Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones

“We chose this song because I had loved Norah Jones and purchased the CD. We would listen to it all the time in the car, and whenever I heard this song, it would make me tear up singing the words to Evan. The lyrics are just so pretty and we thought it would be perfect for our wedding day.”
- Jacqueline Gordon, Global Merchandising Lead

“Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis Presley

“We chose this song because I was an avid fan of Elvis and my husband would always tease me about it. He told me that he was a wise man and he couldn't help falling in love with me.”
- Mary Miller, Creative Production Manager

“Your Song” from ‘Moulin Rouge!’

“We discovered early on that we both love Baz Lurhmann's artistic movie style. ‘Moulin Rouge!’ became one of our favorite movies to watch together and "Your Song" became our song. For our five-year anniversary, we went to see the real Moulin Rouge performance in Paris.”
- Jennifer DiBenedetti, Senior Director of Marketing

“Moody’s Mood For Love” by King Pleasure

“When Lois and I were dating, we would listen to the radio station WBLS when in the car. The DJ, Frankie Crocker, would close his show with this song. We always loved it when it came on and sang along with it. And we still do when we hear it—35 years later!”
- Michael Gullace, Vice President of Creative Services

“Do You Realize??” by The Flaming Lips

“My husband and I love live music and some of the most fun times we've ever had have been at Flaming Lips concerts.”
- Geri-Anne Noe, Director Of Product Development, Lenox Dinnerware

“When I Fall In Love” by Celine Dion & Clive Griffin

“It was the song that was playing on our first date. We fell in love instantly and we were engaged four months later!”
- Allison Lindner, Senior Art Director

“L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole

“I wanted our wedding day to be all about LOVE!”
- Fawn Ostriak, Chief Creative Officer

“At Last” by Etta James

“David and I had dated a lot of people before we met each other, so we were definitely on the older side when we got married. This song felt like it fit our story.”
- Andrea Page, Chief Digital/Marketing Officer

“I’ll Always Love You” by Taylor Dayne

“I was 20 and heard it on the radio while we were planning our wedding. I felt that it summed up my feelings on our future together. 31 years later, I still feel the same!”
- Theresa Nuskey, Accounts Receivable & Credit Supervisor
