Tyrie 101 is knowing every Taylor Swift song by heart. My Fearless-loving dreams came true last march at Calvin + Piper’s wedding when… you guessed it… Love Story was their ceremony recessional, only a few weeks before Taylor’s Version was released. 😭 It was played by a string quartet and my Fearless-loving heart exploded.😭
Taylor Swift is the best artist in human history (duh) and her music should be part of every wedding (duh), but before I present the playlist, a note on their beautiful wedding. It was such a beautiful day. The locations were a.m.a.z.i.n.g. The Shedd Aquarium? Covenant Presbyterian Church? Lincoln Park Zoo? Yes please! I also learned that fish have a bedtime and can’t handle flash! Fun fact.
Vendors: Ceremony: Covenant Presbyterian Church of Chicago (PCA). Reception: Shedd Aquarium. Planner + Coordinator: Anticipation Events. Photographer: Tyrie Mehaffey Photography. Videographer: Smiling Toad Productions. Hair + Makeup: Pin Me Up Chicago. Florist: Trablume. Bakery: Alliance Bakery.

Recessional (because I simply cannot recommend walking down the aisle to Taylor):
Stay Stay Stay
I Think He Knows
The entirety of Fearless + Speak Now on shuffle.
Stay Stay Stay
The Best Day. There is no better song for this. Period. Discussion over. If you watch the music video, you’ll know that it’s actually written to Taylor’s mom. Close enough, though!
Alternatively, I’m Only Me When I’m With You. Love this one!
Clean Up Crew:
Reputation on shuffle. Particularly This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things and New Year’s Day. I love Reputation and it is underrated!
There you have it! A Taylor Swift Wedding Playlist. What did I get right? What did I get wrong?
