DJ Mike Alba (and his mini protegé) threw the most amazing dance party I could have ever imagined. I remember waking up the next morning and asking my new husband, “Oh no, was I the dancing fool at my own wedding?!” Of course, his answer was yes, but I wasn’t alone! We wanted lots and lots of dancing, and that’s just what we got. Plus some singing, too …
“i get down on my kneees for youuuu!” the entire room bellowed at us. there was no cheesy glass clinking at our wedding. oh no, if you wanted the bride and groom to kiss, you had to sing to us! Alba told our guests we’d only smooch after they serenaded us (a capella and into the mic) with a love song. this group went with the entire Top Gun theme song. the ENTIRE song. and just like in the movie, the whole room joined in. it was a moment we’ll never forget.
the only song that can make the entire room belt in unison: Toto “Africa.”
even my Anya couldn’t stay off the dance floor.
my family made up their own song, which included a scene from my favorite movie — “my biological clock, is tickin’ like THIS, and the way this case is goin’, i ain’t neva gettin’ married!” i was practically rolling on the floor laughing.
free lessons from the man behind the music.
those are my cousins and my little sister, and, yes, she is singing into a hair brush. you see there’s this video. starring me. it’s embarrassing. this would be their attempt at a recreation. and they’ll get what’s coming to them.
throughout the night, table after table stepped up for the love song challenge, and we just couldn’t stop laughing at them.
in college they called me “pogo.” apparently i got that bouncy rhythm from my aunt!
Tomorrow will be my last in this series of wedding posts and I’ll be featuring a few final favorites. I hope you’ll tune in for one last look at our amazing day!
