Throughout the wedding process and into the wedding, there are many traditions that our couples look forward to enjoying. When your wedding day comes along, there may be no bigger single attraction than the first dance. With the hustle, bustle, and stress of wedding preparations and entertaining guests, the first dance is a crucial time for newlyweds to slow down, embrace one another, and celebrate their union in love. The first dance is not only a special time for the couple but, the mark of dancing and celebration for all in company.


Through the course of 50 plus years of weddings at our venue, the first dance has been transformed from the traditional waltz or formal dance to just about any dancing you can think of. Your wedding is the perfect time to break tradition and choose the song that best represents you and your partner's love! No matter how each couple decides to dance, each couple must choose the song that's most important to them. Need some inspiration?
