When it comes to dancing, having a good dance partner is just as important as knowing the right steps. You need to communicate well, be in sync, and take care not to trod on each other. When it comes to navigating this crazy world, it’s just as important to have a good life partner – for the same reasons. So if Julie and Ben’s Cheyenne Mountain Resort wedding is any indicator, these two have got it made.
Both Julie and Ben brought their own interests to their relationship and each dove into learning about the other’s. Ben shared with Julie the thrill of cycling (which didn’t quite fit into the wedding day). Julie shared with Ben her love of dance. And boy was it a success!
Jesse and I got a sneak peek at their first dance (and a few extra moves from Ben as Julie’s dress was getting bustled) before the reception got started. As someone with two left feet, I was impressed by both their twists and turns across the dance floor and also by how natural and easy they made it look.
The real first dance was just as spectacular and they spent the rest of the night with their friends and family doing everything from West Coast swing to disco to (my favorite) the Apache dance from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
