Wedding Adventure with Craig and Holly
It is not every day I get to go to a wedding. I teach wedding dance for about 448 weddings a summer, but I do not go to many of them. When my student Ryan and Joy invited us, I jumped on the opportunity to attend their wedding.
It was a beautiful October afternoon with the sun shining at our backs as they exchanged vows at the school for culinary arts at Denver University. Guests went upstairs at the conclusion of the ceremony to dine on appetizers and chit chat as they took their formal photos.
At the conclusion of photos everyone was ushered downstairs to their assigned tables for dinner. After a delightful meal and moving toasts, Ryan and Joy pushed back some tables and set up for their first dance.
A hush fell over the room as the first notes of the Carmen Tango played over the speakers. Joys skirt flew around her as she spun into the first move. With conviction they swirled around the room with their one of a kind Tango. They had spent 6 months perfecting their first dance so they could surprise their guests. As Joy spun into a drop for the end the crowd exploded, then jumped to their feet as she spun into a second dip and kiss for their grand finale.
After such a super first dance, guests could not wait to join the lovely couple on the floor. Excitement filled the air and everyone jumped up to dance and party to the end of the night. It was made very memorable by this super first dance. I was proud to have been there to see their hard work bear beautiful fruit.
