It seems that the majority of people I know were quite happy to see the calendar turn from 2016 to 2017, for a number of reasons. So I was hoping that my first wedding of the year would set a tone for the rest of the year that it would be an amazing one…thankfully, my hopes were fulfilled. Justin & Alexia got married the first Friday of 2017, January 6th, at the Palace in Somerset Park, one of the best halls in the state and one of my favorite places to work. I didn’t get the chance to sit down with them until a week before the wedding as they were traveling in from Minnesota, but it didn’t take long to realize this would be an amazing night.
They started out the night dancing their first dance to a great outside the box song called “Better Today” by Paul Coffey. They had choreographed a dance to it but had to make a slight adjustment to the ending. They had planned on doing a type of lift for the grand finale, but when they rehearsed it they had the slightest tearing sound in Alexia’s dress so decided to end with a dip and a kiss which ended up being a perfect cap to the song.
After that it was party time and we had no problem packing their dance floor as soon as toasts were over and kept them that way until the last note was played. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Fedje and I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon in Maui. Aloha!!
