What We Danced To: The BoDeans’ “Good Things”

by Vi-An Nguyen

Their First Dance Song: Janna and Loyd chose the 90s rock love song “Good Things" by the BoDeans.

Favorite Lyrics: “See I can see good things for you and I / Give I can give love and attention / Give I can give all time away / Only to one heart I can give today"

Their Wedding Music: “We had originally planned to DIY the reception music with an iPod," Janna says. “Eventually we changed our minds and ended up hiring a DJ — but by that point we had already compiled a list of nearly 200 songs!" The couple asked the DJ to focus on the songs from their playlist. “In the end it was a fabulous compromise. We didn't have to worry about any technical mishaps with the sound, because there was a professional at the controls. But, since we had picked all the music, every song that came on seemed to prompt the reaction 'Oh I LOVE this song!!'
