Fall Wedding Dance Graduates

Software engineer and School teacher rock their fall wedding dance first dance.

On August 11, 2018 Katya Velarde and David Elsner tied the knot in a destination wedding in Lima Peru. Katya was born and raised in Peru, so it made sense to plan their wedding in Peru. The happy couple worked on a night club two step to the song “Perfect” In addition to a fabulous first dance, they also worked on a Peruvian traditional wedding dance, the Viennese waltz to “Blue Danube. ” But wait that is not all. When traveling south of the border, you should know a little salsa. This lovely couple also added a little merengue and salsa so they could bur the floor on those hot Peruvian nights. What a joy to teach such an ambitious wedding couple.

Electrical Engineer and Veterinarian tie Swing for their first dance

Swing is an upbeat choice for a first dance. Cara Edelstein and Spencer Hinton chose to rock their reception with a swing to “Dance with me tonight” by ollie Muurs. Kara went so far as to purchase a vintage reception dress and add special laces to her vans for her first dance. They practiced for 9 months and added in extra social dances like rumba, cha cha, and merengue. When the big day came on September 23 2019 at the Moss reception hall they nailed every move. After the honeymoon they came back to work on Foxtrot. They look forward to a lifetime of dance and romance.
