    Is 'At Last' your song?

    Jen and Rudy celebrate their long-awaited union at our beautiful wedding. Nothing is more fitting that Etta James "At Last"

    My husband Rudy and I decided to make "At Last" our wedding song, although I was initially hesitant because I wanted to use a unique wedding song that no one else had as their wedding song. But after 1 LONG year of playing songs that "defined" us, we couldn't NOT choose that PERFECT ballad that best described us.

    Rudy and I got married two years ago, March 13, 2010. He was 41 and I was 32. We had waited SO long to meet the right person, and it is the first marriage for both of us. It seemed as if everyone we knew was already married, or had been married before. Just when we thought that we had kissed EVERY frog left in the Universe, and given up on true love, we met. We met at the gym of all places, and after our first date, we just knew. We got engaged only 3 months later, and every day continues to just get better and BETTER! We are truly soulmates and best friends, and agree that it was SOOOOO worth the VERY LONG WAIT to meet each other. It was all in "the plan"...... AT LAST!!!!!!!!!!!

    Etta James will forever live deep in our souls, as every time we watch our wedding video,and hear that song, we will be reminded of our special day. The day, that AT LAST, we went from two individuals and became ONE.

    "AT LAST." Thank you Etta James for creating such a beautiful song that means so much to so many. You will be truley missed, but remembered FOREVER.
