Jared & Aliza tied the knot in Chicago at The Standard Club on November 12th, 2016.
"We were pretty nervous, so nervous that we made sure to run through our dance during cocktail hour in the hallway. Once we finished our first dance, we were energized and excited to continue dancing all night. It was a great start to our reception, and set the tone for the evening."
Classic, romantic, and fun, Jared & Aliza danced to "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Franki Valli and the Four Seasons.
What was your favorite part of taking dance lessons for the wedding?
"Taking dance lessons allowed us to set aside one time a week to be present with each other (and our wonderful teacher Lydia), and gave us a break from thinking about wedding details. It was great to have this time set aside to just have fun with each other, and it made for an epic first dance!"
What insight or knowledge can you share with other couples who are taking dance lessons for their wedding?
"Make a date night out of it. We had our dance lessons in the evenings, so we would make sure to either make dinner together or go out for dinner before heading to our class."
