First Dance Feature {Sarah & Manetho}

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

A first dance song doesn’t have to be a Frank Sinatra classic or contemporary love song…it can be an uplifting modern tune.

Sarah and Manetho took “Good Life” by One Republic to the W’s dance floor – smiling the whole time!

First Dance Feature – Alia & Daniel

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Some first dances combine flashy moves with a sweet tune.

During the lessons Alia and Daniel took, they choreographed their steps to Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel.” They must have practiced lots and lots – the resulting first dance was absolutely sensational!

First Dance Feature

Remember this vintage-inspired wedding at The Top of the Hay?

This couple’s eclectic, retro aesthetic influenced everything – including the music! After cocktails, when they were introduced as a couple, we played hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco’s “Superstar”.

Then they took the floor to ‘60s crooner Bobby Darrin’s classic “I’m Beginning to See the Light”!

First Dance Feature – Courtney & Jeff

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

A non-traditional song choice doesn’t mean it is strange, especially when it suits your style.

When Courtney and Jeff hit the dance floor at Halcyon House for the first time as husband and wife, it was to Al Green’s “Love and Happiness.” Al Green is one of their favorite artists, and they wanted a song that they could groove to!

First Dance Feature: Adrienne & Daniel

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Not everyone chooses a slow, classic song oozing romance for their first time as a married couple on the dance floor.

The first dance song at Adrienne and Daniel’s wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Hyatt in Cambridge, MD, foreshadowed the party on the dance floor yet to come.

They rocked out to the sound of “Please Baby” by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, while one of DC’s finest wedding photographers, Greg Gibson, documented how much fun they had!

First Dance Feature – Tom and Ashley

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Choosing a first dance song is such a personal thing, and over the years, Chris Laich Music Services has deejayed Washington, DC area weddings, we’ve covered almost every genre.

It’s always fun to see what every couple we work with picks! We thought it would be nice for planning couples to see what tunes others have stepped out on the dance floor to for their first official dance as a married couple.

Thus inspired, we’ve created a new “First Dance Feature.” A few times a month, we’ll profile Chris Laich Music Services couples and share their first dance song choice with you, starting with Tom and Ashley.

Tom and Ashley celebrated their marriage at the Washington Golf Club, and chose “Sea Breeze” by Tyrone Wells, a sweet, folk-pop song with really romantic guitar.

Gary, a documentary photography associate at Rodney Bailey, did an amazing job capturing the moment!
