With so many weddings coming this year, last week I felt inspired to write a song called “Beautiful In White”. The second I finished the song I just felt to go for it. I recorded it and put it out there. There just aren’t enough songs for weddings and this one is specifically for that one dance that is like no other dance, the dance between the father and the bride.

As I wrote this song I thought of my wife Sonja the day we were married 30 years ago. I thought of the birth of my two girls and a million minutes, days and hours since. I thought of my dance with my oldest daughter Josie when she was married a few years ago. And of course, I thought of my second daughter Maddy who will get married some time long before I am ready, I am sure. And yes, I even thought of my brand new granddaughter Emry who is years away from marriage but certain to break a few hearts, including her own Daddy’s, soon enough.

Life is a wild and crazy ride and weddings are some of the most intensely emotional and beautiful moments in our lives. I wanted to put a meaningful song out there that brides can consider to be a part of their weddings. As a singer and songwriter, here is a piece of my heart. I hope the song touches yours.

Thanks for listening! (click play below)

Beautiful In White

Popa’s little girl
This family’s whole world
The day you showed up
Bright eyes and feather soft hair
You stole my heart then and there
First time you slept on my chest
I felt nothing but love
But Oh

Where did the time go my love
When did you grow up
With all that I know I will miss as forever I reminisce
That little girl that brought laughter and smiles
And the sweetest of joy to my life
Today you bring tears to my eyes
So beautiful in white

I see the light in your eyes
When you look at him
Though it’s hard to let go
I know that today you begin
Down a new road your heart’s meant to go
You’re both so in love and it shows
But Oh

Where did the time go my love
When did you grow up
With all that I know I will miss as forever I reminisce
That little girl that brought laughter and smiles
And the sweetest of joy to my life
Today you bring tears to my eyes
So beautiful in white

Just tell me you’ll always remember how we
Would ride down the dirt roads
And you’d sit right next to me

Where did the time go my love
When did you grow up
With all that I know I will miss as forever I reminisce
That little girl that brought laughter and smiles
And the sweetest joy to my life
Today you bring tears to my eyes
So beautiful in white

I love to see you smile
So beautiful in white
I love to see you smile
So beautiful in white
