Their Song

Tiffany Pasqualone and her father, Michael Pasqualone
“Bad to the Bone” by George Thorogood and the Destroyers “My dad’s always had the long hair, tattoos, and he rides a Harley. “Bad to the Bone’ will forever be his song. It reminds me of my happy youth.” Photo: Joe Leonard

Cara Chard and her father, David Chard
“Ring My Bell” by Anita Ward “In the late seventies, my dad was known as Disco Dave. He often said this song reminded him of the time he met my mother. When the first notes came on, his whole face lit up.” Photo: Dreamscape Studio

Adeeb Mohiuddin and her husband, Aaron Ekroth
“40 Day Dream” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros “Aaron had used the intro of this song in a video he did for Sixpoint Ales. While traveling for work, I finally listened to the lyrics, and I felt like he was with me. It was the last dance at our wedding, but our first time sharing the song.” Photo: Les Loups Pictures + Songs

Antonio Tomaro and his husband, Jason Bailey, with their children Reagan and Troy Bailey
“I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis “Reagan and I recorded ourselves singing this for Jay as a Father’s Day present, so he had an inkling it would make a great first song. When Donna Lewis took the stage, Troy and Reagan jumped on me, and we all started singing.” Photo: Brian Hatton

Gin Galletti and her husband, Kyle Cantrell
“Wild One” by Thin Lizzy “I used to listen to this song and dream of the man I might meet one day. I met Kyle on a trip to San Francisco, and I played it for him while we drove around in the sun. We knew something magical was happening.” Photo: Joanna Trimble

Jack Elliott and his mother, Lynda Kunkel
“Take Your Mama” by Scissor Sisters “My mom’s heyday was the Studio 54 era, but none of those songs quite fit. Our D.J. suggested “Take Your Mama.’ It was perfect. The Scissor Sisters have such a fun, irreverent take on disco. Mom really appreciated it.” Photo: Levi Stolove

Lori Bergamotto and her husband, Nick Barnhorst
“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell “Nick and I met while he was living in San Diego, and I was in NYC. We flew back and forth for four years. Despite the distance (mountains and valleys), nothing kept us from one another.” Photo: John Decker

Roxanne Wiles and her husband, Jeff Delaney
“Rack City (Clean Version)” by Tyga “We wanted our first dance to be memorable, so before launching into a Ray LaMontagne love ballad, we delivered our best pop-and-lock robot moves to “Rack City.’ Our guests’ expressions went from confusion to embarrassment to elation. We achieved our goal.” Photo: Julian Mackler/Mackler Studios
