My favorite part about any wedding is the dancing part.
We really wanted the vibe of our wedding to be fun and decided early on that fun equals lots of dancing.
Lucky for me, J. Alabama and I think similarly when it comes to the dancing fun. So the more dancing the more fun!
When it came time to discuss our first dance song we toyed with a traditional first slow dance, but knew that wasn’t quite us.
We needed a little bit more action…so we worked out a remix with our DJ to surprise all of our guests.
Our first song & dance together as husband and wife began to a Damien Rice song. We danced slowly and gazed lovingly into each other’s eyes….
Then BAM! Our song quickly switched into a song that was a little more us — Outcast’s “Hey Ya!”.
Because it’s dancy, happy, fun and we both love it.
At the time we had been obsessed with the Wii game ‘Just Dance’ and spent many a night practicing “Hey Ya” in preparation for this big day.
Nothing like a choreographed dance to get the crowd excited.
And my favorite part was that it ended up coming full circle and we ended our first dance back with the slow Damien Rice song. Had to keep a little traditional with all the fun. 😉
Our fun first dance was a great way to kick off the night!
And as you will see from these photos there was no lack of dancing or of fun being had.
A little bit softer now…
If there was any question about how much our friends and us love to dance, you can just ask our DJ –we ended up extended the dance party an extra half hour because we just weren’t ready to quit.
Now that’s something to dance about!
From the looks of these photos (and the hundred others) lots of dancing does equal lots of fun.
