Bride Ditches Tradition For A Boogie With Her Dad
When it comes to weddings, tradition plays a huge role in the event. From the color of the bridal dress, to entertaining the guests, to those little bits throughout the ceremony that mark the start of a new life for the happy couple. One of those bits is the dance that the bride shares with her dad, as her final sendoff into a new life with the man she chose to be her partner in crime.
Lately, brides opt out of the traditional swaying to a melody that means a lot to them and their dads and perform a choreography that send everyone present into a frenzy and this girl is no exception!
This awesome dad and daughter duo provided wedding guests with a real treat as they ditched the traditional dance for a boogie through the ages with this awesome mashup. Bride Holly Wolff and her dad Rick Harnsberger from Olmsted Falls, Ohio, USA, popped, locked and jived to some of their favorite songs in front of a few hundred guests at Holly's wedding in October.
Walking onto the dancefloor on and swaying slowly to a Celine Dion classic, all seems relatively normal with this wedding day ritual that Wednesday. That is until a swift spin around is met with a drastic change in music, and ... proves that Rick’s got far more rhythm than your average dad dancer to rapturous applause.
What started out as a traditional father-daughter dance swiftly turned into something than no one attending will ever forget! Check out this other bride from Utah break a dance with her dad and surprising the 400 guests at her wedding reception with an epic dance mashup choreographed to perfection in place of the traditional dance.
Mikayla Ellison Phillips and her dad Nathan Ellison decided to defy wedding tradition by switching from “Butterfly Kisses" to “Can't Touch This", “Party Rock" and “Bye Bye Bye". Mikayla is the oldest child and only daughter, so her father has been convincing her to do a stunt like this and she finally gave in. As it turns out, Mikayla is a professional dancer – she met he now-husband Cody as dance partners in Brigham Young University’s International Folk Dance Ensemble.
The father-daughter duo spent only a week practicing the choreography, which wasn't easy. Dad Nathan is a sales rep for a tech company.
