How did you meet the love of your life (in 5 sentences or less)?
We worked at the same advertising agency. Alex worked in Miami and Kate worked in Boulder. We worked together via email, but once Alex relocated to Boulder, sparks really flew.
What was your first dance song and why did you pick it?
We chose “Pure Imagination” as sung by Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka. The song really encapsulates how we feel when we’re together—to us, it’s about the kind of love that supports endless possibilities.
Why did you choose to take wedding dance lessons?
The song really needed some moves to stand up to it’s sweeping moments. So, we wanted to do a little more than just sway back and forth. We’re both very outgoing, so we used it as a moment to really entertain our guests and help them get swept up into the song and the moment with us.
Would you recommend wedding dance lessons?
Absolutely. And not just because it’ll make your wedding day special. Admist all of the stress and planning of a wedding, it was so nice to take an hour to connect, do something different, and dance.
What was your favorite moment at your wedding?
We had a moment during our ceremony where we held hands and faced everyone who had come to support us. It was overwhelming and humbling to stand there and take in all of the people who had traveled just to be there for us.
Hindsight is 50/50. What advice would you give to a couple that is in the beginning stages of wedding planning?
Don’t get sucked into Pinterest and bridal magazines. Sit down with your partner and make a list of the top 5 things that are important to you on your wedding day. Focus on those, and let anything that isn’t in service of those 5 things fall away.
