Ellis Island First Dance

For their first dance, Lauren and David wanted a song that was both upbeat and unexpected. They pair chose Amos Lee’s “Sweet Pea,” which included a line that rang true to their relationship. The lyrics, “You’re the only reason I keep on coming home,” eluded to the couple’s long-distance relationship while David lived across the globe and traveled back to be with Lauren.
