Passport To Love: Dancing Into The Reception

We asked our bridal party to dance into the reception to It Takes Two by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock and they did not disappoint!



Mr. E and I fed off of their energy for our entrance to Fall Out Boy’s The Take Over, The Break’s Over.

We opted to go right into our first dance while everyone was already focused on the dance floor. Our first dance was to Good Morning Beautiful by Steve Holy which had a personal connection for Mr. E and me.

We thought about taking dance lessons, (and even went to one) but when we saw how expensive it was going to be we decided to nix it. So get ready for a little sway action.


Good morning beautiful

How was your night

Mine was wonderful with you by my side

When I open my eyes and see your sweet face

It’s a good morning beautiful day.


I couldn’t see the light

I didn’t know day from night

I had no reason to care

But since you came along

I can face the dawn,

‘Cause I know you’ll be there


I’m never worried if it’s raining outside

Because in here with you girl,

The sun always shines


Will you have your first dance earlier or later in the reception?

    Your smiles as you entered the ballroom were priceless, and yes I SHED yet another happy tear or two as you danced your first dance. I leaned over to Papa E and said “wasn’t it just yesterday E was riding a big wheel in the drive way”. Loved the first dance song and also loved that you remembered Papa E and my first dance song and made sure it was in your play list.. still love Al Green’s, “Lets stay together” thanks E.

    Early! I love going right into it while the energy is still up! Plus it breaks up all the other dances such as father/daughter or mother/son. Seems like ppl won’t get bored that way.

    That song gets to me every time I hear it! Great song choice. I like that you went right into the first dance – I think we are doing the same!
