The bride and groom's first dance was to Louis Armstrong's "My One and Only Love," but what Jordana refers to as "the real song" that they danced to for the second-to-last song of the night "where everyone rocked out" was "Build Me Up Buttercup" by The Foundations.

An events planner, Jordana, 30, credits this outlook as the driving force that helped her get through losing her father and several friends on 9/11. By focusing on the positive, she and David, 37, a portfolio manager, were able to plan an exuberantly festive and celebratory day.

"A good friend said I would never meet anyone sitting on my couch ...," Jordana says -- but the friend was clearly wrong.
