Best New Year’s Eve Party Ever!

 

 

Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned waltz, especially when it’s danced to a modern and sensual song? And of course, you’d expect a wedding on New Year’s Eve to combine the best of the old and the new. So it’s no surprise that this gorgeous couple looked amazing performing their first dance as they rang out the old year and rang in their new lives together.

Patience, practice, and teamwork!

 

So elegant!

 

All I Want is For You to Be Happy….

As a former gymnast (She even has a move named after her!), this bride was up for anything. Good thing her handsome groom was willing to work as hard as she was, because this upbeat first dance really is packed with goodies.

 

Plenty of concentration here.

 

Gorgeous!

A Sweet & Laid-back Wedding Dance

 

 

Hailing from North Carolina, this couple already had a little bit of shag in their dance toolbox, so it was easy to build from there. The result had a sweet and laid-back feeling (just like them) and they made look easy.

 

Enjoying lessons together.

 

Wowing family and friends at the wedding!

 

So, how did it go?

Ooga-Chaka Ooga-Ooga

 

I knew this was going to be a fun couple to work with when Stephanie called to set up their first lesson and told me their wedding dance was going to be to the Guardian’s of the Galaxy theme song! What we created with them was fun and lively, yet still romantic. Unfortunately, there was a miscue with the DJ and we’ll never get to see the actual first dance, but this practice session offers a pretty good peek at how it would have gone.

 

So sassy!

Fresh as a Ocean Breeze

This couple just proves the old saying “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” You see, while they were taking lessons one of them was living in Memphis and the other in St. Louis. Talk about dedication! Completing this routine took a lot of planning, but it was all worth it when they had their gorgeous and romantic first dance on the beach at sunset.

Teamwork gets it done.
Tropical perfection!

Breezy Boho First Dance

 

Since they’ve already been working together for years running an iconic downtown restaurant (eat at The Arcade ya’ll), this couple truly knows the value of teamwork. Add in hard work, crazy hours, and gallons of coffee and you get a beautiful first dance. Oh, and the bare feet? If it wasn’t already romantic enough, the wedding was in a tent on the beach.

 

 

Hard work and lots of coffee!

 

Casual elegance at it’s best.

A Modern Fairy Tale

 

When the bride is a professional wedding photographer, you know her standards are going to be high. But this gorgeous couple even exceeded their own expectations. From the moment he presents her with the flower to the final dip, this Viennese waltz is pure romance. And if that weren’t enough, Elizabeth secretly recorded herself singing their song (she has a beautiful voice). You can see the emotional moment toward the end when he realizes that it’s her. So beautiful.

 

Having fun and working hard.

 

The story unfolds.

Opposites Attract

 

 

Wendy and Chris are a good example of the axiom opposites attract. Okay, so they’re both sweet, intelligent, successful people, but they’re personalities are yin and yang. In other words, perfect together! So it’s no surprise that their charming wedding in the garden at Acre was a beautiful blending of the two, and their first dance was just sweet, sweet, sweet.

 

Feel the love!
