Wedding Playlist 2016


While Ed Sheeran swept the romantics off feet with ‘Thinking Out Loud’, Adele touched hearts with ‘Make you Feel My Love.’ And of late, so many couples chose Jason Derulo’s ‘Marry Me’ for their first dance and the guests went crazy on the dance floor to the beats of Pharrell William’s & Missy Elliot’s ‘Where They From’.
