Over 200 most requested reception songs by Genre

Looking back at my wedding (almost 17 years ago) what I take away from it and remember most is the funny things that happened.  My Dad walking me down the aisle - the sirens that interrupted our ceremony. (we got married at Benham's Grove).  I also remember some of the dances and music that happened.  Father Daughter Dance - the group dance.  Being a photographer I know it is important to capture the special moments so you visually can remember - but the music helps you remember simply by how you felt and the moment you were captured in when you heard it.

Having a DJ that is engaging and listens to you as well as being well prepared will only add to your overall Wedding memories.  After all the celebration is also a gift to your guests and you want them to have a good time.

We get to work with some amazing DJ's and if your in the market for a DJ please consider our list below:

The Shoeleywed Game.  This is always such a good laugh for your guests and so much fun.  Rolling Meadows Ranch in Lebanon Ohio

The list below was compiled by Bride.com and I can tell you that in 2017 many of these songs were played at the dozens of weddings we shot this year.  I have a feeling many of them will get played next year as well.

Melanie S. Robison, Photographer. Mom, Wife, Dog Mom, Aunt, Sister, and Daughter. MSRcreations Photography is my vision of rich and real photographs. Something I have loved for many years and I dont really feel it is work. In business since 2012 I am so proud of how far my photography business has come. I could not be where I am without the many clients that I see every year. I am humbled that they entrust me to capture images for them and blessed to watch as their families grow. It is truly a blessing beyond what I can explain in words. Enjoy reading and viewing their stories in my blog - dont worry I throw some personal stuff in there as well as a photographer's advice on things.
