    Is 'At Last' your song?

    A Wedding At Last


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KAGriffi79and her now-husband, Richard, were together for 9 years before they decided to tie the knot. They chose 'At Last' as the song for their July 19, 2008, wedding. 'It's so soulful and tells exactly how I feel about the relationship with my husband. It's just amazing how Etta sings that song. NO ONE could reproduce the feeling that Etta conveys when she sings it,' she said.
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    My husband was my college sweetheart and were together for 9 years before we married. We had a lovely and small wedding in Upstate NY. We chose "At Last" by Etta James as our first dance together at our reception. It was the perfect fit. It was one of my favorite songs. The way Etta hits those notes and the song is absolutely soulful! As the music started and the first words of "Attttt Lassst" blasted over the speakers everyone laughed and clapped because they all knew it was a long journey for us. I remember and cherish every moment of that day and am so happy that Etta's song sang us into a marriage now 4 years old and 13 happy years together. I simply love that song.
