Not Your Ordinary Father-Daughter & Mother-Son Dance

As you know, I'm the type of person who loves to think outside-of-the-box.  It's always refreshing to turn the traditional into something unique.  I also love it when wedding couples and their vendors get creative to make their wedding as unique as possible.  Today we have a treat!  A DJ friend of mine from my high school days, Rommel Andaya aka DJ ROM, performed at a wedding in San Diego recently.  I wanted him to share his thoughts and this amazing video he captured of an untraditional Father-Daughter and Mother-Son dance!  THE BEST idea I've seen.  Thanks to DJ ROM and his videography crew from Starcross'd Creative for sharing this video.

DJ ROM:  "It was a given that I was going to be the DJ of choice for Mr. & Mrs. Kelvin Valenzuela because they have seen me perform at their best friend's wedding and seen me DJ at other events as well. The Wedding couple made it clear to me that they wanted to make their wedding reception really fun. They had a San Diego Chargers themed entrance and decided to allow dancing during the intermissions so that the wedding guests don't get bored. Their program was full of several dance performances. As we were selecting songs for the different events during their reception, they proposed an idea that they wanted to do a surprise dance performance during the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dance. The idea was for them to dance to a slow song and then the DJ stops the song to play a dance song.  The wedding couple would pretend that the DJ made a mistake, but then when they hear the dance music they would begin to do the dance motions to three dance songs.  The proposed idea was a dance battle between the wedding couple.  However, I suggested for other people to join in unexpectedly to add to the shock factor. So they decided to teach their parents the dance moves. I knew that this was a performance that I wanted to capture on video so I recorded it. I am so glad that I did because it was so amazing!"
