Wedding Songs - At Last by Etta James

"At Last" is a 1941 song written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren for the film musical, Sun Valley Serenade. The following year it was re-arranged and also used in the film Orchestra Wives. Both these versions were originally recorded by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra with vocals by Ray Eberle.

Whilst it has since been recorded by many artists, the Etta James version is perhaps the most famous, and is very popular at wedding ceremonies and receptions because of its romantic lyrics and sweeping orchestration. This is essentially one of the best love songs ever. It's so heavenly, with that whole concept about love at first sight, and that wonderful, wonderful feeling one gets when they realise that they're in love.

At Last

At last, my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clovers
The night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Oh, yeah when you smile, you smile
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine
At last
