LAUREN & DENNIS
Lauren and Dennis decided to do a very big "wow" first dance. Not only did they dance to "Lucky" by Jason Mraz but they decided to duplicate Stifler's Dance Off song mix and choreography from the third American Pie movie, "American Wedding". Click here to see the movie's dance off moves on YouTube!
So we did the entire "Lucky" song and then started in on the steps and moves for the dance off. Taking into account Lauren's dress (she changed into another dress for the dance!) and also who was going to "play" who in the dance off we painstakingly went through the video and started reproducing the movie's dance off for real with a few modifications for personal preference.
The energetic couple practiced lots outside of their lessons and I wrote the whole thing down and videoed it for them to have as reference outside of class. What an exciting couple of first dances for them and their guests; such incredible memories. Below are a few pictures they sent me from their big day... Photographer: Shant Meguerdichian
