A Sophisticated Wedding Foxtrot

 

 

Ahhh, a spring wedding. Olivia and Jacob’s outdoor service at Southwind was perfect!

When I first met this lovely couple, I asked what they hoped to get out of their lessons and Olivia said, “We just want to look like sophisticated adults.” Excellent. That request was made even easier since they chose a song that was a Foxtrot, which is a smooth and classy dance.

Working with these two was so much fun because even though they laughed (a lot!) during their lessons, they worked hard and progressed quickly. With only a few lessons, they had a dance they could really be proud of. The only glitch was that while practicing in the hallway right before going out on the floor, Olivia realized she had a little trouble moving backwards in her dress. But they worked as a team to overcome that obstacle, and isn’t that what marriage is all about?

The big event!
