… I’ll spend loving you.

 

 

“If we’re going to be awkward, at least we’ll be awkward together” is one of the sweetest things I’ve overheard in a lesson. For better or worse, right? And although they did struggle a bit at first, with patience and practice they had a lovely first dance in the end.

 

The Struggle …

 

… and the Reward.

You’re just too good to be true…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These two cuties were sweet and easy to work with and I could listen to her lilting Trinidadian accent all day. And as if that wasn’t enough, sometimes they brought their adorable fur baby to watch!

Teamwork…

 

…makes the dream work.

 

But everything’s gonna be all right …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This couple is a total swipe right – fun, photogenic, and fabulous! They brought a lot of joy to their lessons, and you can see it in their super fun first dance.

Lifts are tricky, but with lots of instruction and practice they can be worth it.

 

I think I just met my wife.

 

 

I can only give you love that lasts forever…

 

 

Every first dance should showcase the personalities of the couple. In this case she’s sassy and he’s suave. That was enough to get us rolling. But when we found out that he is a serious hat aficionado, we knew we could really have some fun. Don’t let how easy they made it look fool you. Working with a prop of any kind is tricky and they did an amazing job.

 

As confidence grows.

 

It all comes together!

 

You Look Perfect Tonight.

 

 

You have to love it when family and friends pitch in to create the perfect wedding. In this case they transformed an ordinary barn into a magical land where the handsome groom could waltz with his beautiful bride under a canopy of twinkling lights. So lovely.

It’s all about balance and practice.

 

Magical!

 

 

Free as blue bonnets in the summer…

 

 

 

If the bride and groom are both from Texas, you might expect the first dance to be a two-step. What you might not expect though, is for it to also be sweet and romantic. Count this a win for lace and cowboy boots!

 

The very first lesson.

 

First dance Texas style!

Did you enjoy your lessons?

 

 

You are the best thing…

… that ever happened to me.

 

 

 

Some couples are just cute, and this one definitely is. Just look at them! And being laid-back and willing to laugh at themselves also made them fun and easy to teach. It was an honor to be there to see it all come together on that beautiful fall evening.

 

The bloopers reel!

 

The big moment!

 

 

Take My Hand…

 

 

 

I wondered for awhile how this couple kept improving as quickly as they did. It was obvious that they were practicing, but I couldn’t imagine how since he was frequently on the road as a long-haul trucker. So, I finally asked, and the answer is just the sweetest thing. He would actually park next to other rigs at truck stops and practice his part in the space between them. Meanwhile, she was here doing her part while balancing two jobs and a toddler. Talk about dedication! And as you’ll see, all that hard work totally paid off with a beautiful (and kinda sexy) first dance.

 

So much work on every little detail!

 

Surprising everyone with a beautiful first dance!

 

 

 

 

 

And I get to kiss you baby just because I can …

How do you maintain a relationship long distance? Well this couple could probably give us all some pointers, because while they were planning their wedding, he was living here in Memphis and she was nearly 250 miles away in medical school. And they even managed to fit in dance lessons so they could have a first dance as gorgeous as they are.  Score another one for the power of love!

Taking the time to learn together.

 

Worth it!

 

Just thinkin’ bout…

 

 

 

This couple is plenty adventurous (They snowboarded into their wedding!), but one of the first things Janelle said to us was, “We both hate dancing in public.” Well I guess we created a monster (two actually), because by the time the wedding rolled around they had learned not only their first dance choreography, but also some push-pull, merengue, and salsa. They were actually looking forward to dancing at the reception!

 

Learning how to not hate dancing!

  

And he still sweeps her off of her feet!
