Our Love Story's Playlist

The Perfect Mix Tape

Some people believe everything happens for a reason. Michael and Ben accept this mantra and add, "to seek the good things in life." This is their love story played out in music through a five song playlist. 

Song 1. Lady Gaga, The Fame. "LoveGame"
Cupid played a game that was five years in the making. Cupid shot an arrow at Michael and Ben during a Houston concert featuring Lady Gaga. "We had just began talking via OkCupid, and our now maid-of-honor pushed us to trade numbers, which lead to our first date."
Song 2. Lady Gaga, Born This Way. "Yoü and I"
Like most first dates it was a little awkward. "When we recognized our mutual love for music, the dates became less awkward." Their dates continued from picnics on the floor of a college dorm, to the floor of their first apartment, and eventually to the picnic where the proposal occurred. 

Song 3. Glee Cast, Glee: The Music, Vol.1. "Don't Stop Believing"
June 27, 2015, The U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. What Michael and Ben thought could never be, became a reality.

Song 4. Taylor Swift, 1989. "Welcome To New York"
The debut of The Great Gatsby movie set the tone for the elegance Michael and Ben wanted in planning their wedding.

Song 5. Kesha, Rainbow, "Rainbow" 
Six years after Cupid shot his arrow, Michael and Ben, along with family, friends, and loved ones met at Kendall Plantation and said "I Do." "Just as God put a rainbow in the sky for us to see the beauty of color after a storm, we were granted the same. We look to the sky without any limits and seek the good things in life."
