Jessica and Stephen pulled off the perfectly-choreographed First Dance. Keep in mind that it was not your average song nor your average dance. In fact, 99.9% of couples would never attempt this type of dance. They decided to pick a Salsa! (Now that’s adventurous!) This was by far one of the best first dance’s I have ever witnessed. I only hope that I can get a copy of the video in the future to show you. All 175 guests at The Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto were blown away and were standing and cheering them both on. It was awesome…and so was the rest of the evening. Here is a shot of them after dinner (Jessica with her dad and Stephen with his Mom) Photos by Charles Le.The energy in the room was electric as the guests danced to a variety of music from artists like Journey, Kool and the Gang, Michael Jackson, and Justin Timberlake. Jessica also requested some great Latin music from The Gipsy Kings, Ricky Martin, Shakira, Elvis Crespo, as well as others. Here are their special dances:
First Dance: “Te Amo” by Maelo Ruiz
Father-Daughter Dance: “The Way You Look Tonight” by Steve Tyrell
Cake-Cutting: “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole
Bouquet Toss: “Single Ladies” by Beyonce
Later in the evening, they let loose even more with some fun hats and inflatable toys and guitars that they brought along. It was great to see them all having such an awesome time.
At the end of the evening, they asked me to announce that the party would continue around the corner at “The Blue Chalk”. Like most Latin weddings, they demonstrated that they had an endless supply of energy and that they were certainly not afraid to use it!
