Father-Daughter dance songs range from sweet classics to fun and modern, and almost always get everyone feeling sentimental. For her dance with her father at her wedding at The Top of the Hay, Ellie chose “Free Fallin’” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

You might remember from her wedding that Ellie, a Memphis native, had a surprise guest appearance by Elvis at her reception. And though Tom is not from Memphis, he did meet Elvis at the age of 10, and because of the King fell in love with rock music!

We saw Elvis at the Top of the Hay!

He must have heard that Ellie, a native of Memphis, was celebrating her marriage to Danny and felt a surprise performance was in order.

Honestly, we can’t say we blame him – Ellie and Danny are such a wonderful couple, full of love for one another! After the newlywed’s first dance to “Everything” by Michale Buble, and somewhere before their cake was cut, Ellie and her friends Lexy and Michelle (the Sweet Signature Singers) along with guitarist Any Walker performed “Walking in Memphis” for Danny…and then Elvis appeared! He sang a few songs, posed for some fan pictures, and headed back to Graceland.

Then, everyone spilled onto the dance floor and danced all night to Bob Seger, the Rolling Stones, Otis Knight, Michael Jackson, UB40, Lil Jon, Britney Spears, LMFAO, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Avicii, Beach Boys, Katy Perry and more – what a crazy, fun crowd!
