11 wedding dance photos that'll make you wanna boogie

Updated Mar 15 2021
Ashley & Mike's wedding

If there's one thing that we love more than dancing itself, it's photos of people getting their groove on. Our philosophy on dancing is that the sillier you look, the more fun you're having. So, we put together a collection some awesome brides, grooms and guests gettin' down.

Natalie and Ross got low at their wedding reception on Phillip Island. They also celebrated with a piñata, delicious paella, croquembouche, and a lolly buffet. MMMM.

Lisa and Kyle not only swayed the night away, but they had a mother-freakin' chainsaw at their wedding.

Melinda and Jerry met while playing softball. In honor of that, they had a softball-themed wedding and they got married at the field where they first met: Victory Lane in Glendale, AZ. I love how content Melinda looks while dancing with her father.

Speaking of contentment, don't M and M look utterly blissed out?

Christy and Chris got married at the Georgetown Ballroom in Seattle, WA. They started the night off a little slower with a first dance to "I'll Catch You" by The Get Up Kids…

Ryan and Tara were dancing fools on their wedding night…

Father-Daughter Surprise Hip Hop Dance!
…Tara and her Father even choreographed a surprise hip-hop dance. They started their Father/Daughter dance out slow with "Butterfly Kisses," and then they busted some moves to Ciara's "One, Two Step."


Cindy and Justin had their reception at a local dance club, the Sunset Club. At one point, this group started out doing a shuffle with cigarette's hanging in their mouths, and a couple others joined in. Thus, it was dubbed the "cigarette dance."

    • thank you!!!! i bought it off a seller off etsy. it was damaged when i received it, but it was saved by an awesome seamstress friend and a great dry cleaner! originally it was floor length, but i'm so short we decided to make it tea length. i also found an amazing HUGE black petticoat to slip under it.

  1. M&M look so gorgeous! Wow wow wow! Has their wedding been featured before? Would love to know moaar! 😀 breathtaking…. that image just made my day

  2. AND I just want to say that I'm the chick in the black dress is Cindy and Justin's Cigarette dance picture (that's not what I wanted to say)—I MET MY FH THERE! Now I'm an OBB because of my delightful friends Justin and Cindy. FH is a college friend of Justin's and I'm a friend of Cindy!

    P.S. FH is the one in the middle with the cigarette—with the lavender shirt and dark pants. That shirt still makes me swoon. 😉

    • That's so f'ing adorable.

      That shot of you and the bride dancing in the flickr stream is also amazing. You both look so gorgeous.

  3. Yay! I'm so glad to make it into the Monday Montage!! I love this site!! The dancing at the reception was truly the part I most looked forward to about our whole wedding (except for, you know, marrying Ryan!)
