I already mentioned that we had our first dance right off the bat, so the dance floor was open very early on, and our guests certainly didn’t waste any time. In fact, the dance floor was packed in between each dinner course, and it stayed packed all the way ’till 3 am, when we had to close the party down.

…Even Lil W. joined in on the fun!
Because of some of our earlier delays, we had to decide whether or not we wanted to spend the extra money and pay for one more hour of photography. In the end, we did, and it was totally worth it because these dancing pictures are fabulous. I feel like I’m right back in the moment whenever I look at them.
Disclaimer: some of these pictures were taken during dinner, while others were taken later on, but I wanted to keep them all together.
As far as the playlist goes, I’ll be honest, I don’t remember most of the songs that played that night. All I know is Mark did a great job reading the crowd and mixing current hits with some classics, like the YMCA. He started off with a few Oldies but Goodies, and as the evening progressed, the music became more like what you would hear at a club, since the older folks had gone home by this point. But I digress. In the words of Elvis, a little less conversation, a little more action, please!
