Just Mauied :: The Twelfth of Never

Sometimes I don’t know why I try and finish recapping our wedding. Then I come across the below video footage, and I remember why. I’m going to jump around on my recaps, because… well… it’s MAH recaps and I’ll do as I want. :) Plus, I’ve made it a new year’s resolution to only blog what I want to blog about. No more ‘forced’ blog entries, because those are no fun! So from now on, I’m bloggin’ when the mood strikes (and when time permits, no more blogging at 2am!).

Anyways, back to why I’m here today. Leading up to our wedding, Mr. Knight knew he wanted to honor his Mema and Papa with a dance of their own (as they will be celebrating their 50th Wedding anniversary this year and have done so much for Mr. Knight growing up/and now). So we told the DJ to play “their” song, The Twelfth of Never by Johnny Mathis, during our reception as a surprise for them.

I love how Mr. Knight’s Papa is singing the song to Mema in her ear while they dance. ♥

The song, “The Twelfth of Never,” comes from a popular expression which is used as the date of a future occurrence that will never come to pass. In the case of the song, the 12th of Never is given as the date on which the singer will stop loving his beloved, thus indicating that he will always love her/him. Wikipedia

Ahhh, every time I hear this song I fall more and more in love with it. :)

Then everyone joined in…

Groomsmen M and his gal, A. Funny enough, they both caught the bouquet and garter. Watch out, y’all are NEXT!

Sunny MOH and her husband, Groomsmen S, dance within the crowd. Their now living half way around the world in Thailand doing volunteer work for the next few years. Miss them♥.

And, here Mema and Papa are, at their Wedding 50 years ago.

Happy (soon-to-be) Anniversary!♥

Do you plan/did you have a special dance for your grandparents (or anyone else in your family)? Was it a surprise for them?

    I love that you guys did that – how absolutely sweet! We shared our first dance with my parents, who were 2 months away from their 26th anniversary. I had our song picked out before we were officially engaged, and learned that we picked the same song they had chosen when they got married, so it just seemed right!
