What We Danced To: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ “Home”

by Vi-An Nguyen

Their First Dance Song: Mary and Sean, a super-creative couple (they founded a design and marketing studio together), knew all along that they wanted to share their first dance to “Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The upbeat folk rock song was the perfect complement to their vintage/rustic wedding.

The Live Performance: The couple had their live band learn the song just for the wedding. “We weren't sure the band would be able to play [the song]," Mary says."But my lord, did they ever. The Sevilles blew us away. The dance was probably the most fun moment of the day. We had so much fun that the lead singer said he had never seen two newlyweds enjoy their first dance as much as us. I told him it was all because of their amazing performance."
