Mina and George first met during an Argentine Tango class. Music has followed them through their relationship and I honestly felt as if I heard a soundtrack accompanying their wedding day. So this post is primarily a tribute to that element of their day.

Starting with the birdsong backdrop during their portrait session.

During their first dance, guests enjoyed watching our couple show off their moves.

While they were visiting tables, a Persian game between the bride and groom and their guests turned into a spontaneous dance party.

Mina and George are not the only ones who felt the inspiration to dance. Almost instantly everyone was on the dance floor.

Mina and George took center stage.

Girls just want to have fun… with the bouquet toss. This one taken by our associate, Brian Lee. The ladies had such a good time.

Boys! Boys! Boys! The garter toss. Mina giving George a little instruction about what to do and not to do.

Closing the evening out with a lullaby, my favorite by Brian. This young lady was pooped from all the fun.
