Ya Mon! Dancing, a Dress Change, and more Dancing

Fresh off of our (second) first dance, it was time to boogie down! We decided to forgo the traditional parent dances & hit the floor. A couple of songs into the reception, I realized that it's HOT in Jamaica. Especially when dancing the night away with your best friends :)

So, an outfit change was in order. This was an 11th hour purchase for me, the day before we left for Jamaica. I tore around from little boutique to little boutique, praying someone would have SOMETHING short, white & cute. Finally, a little shop on Belmont (the 6th or 7th store) had this cute little number and I snapped it right up. I also got in trouble for bringing my Starbucks into the store, but I won't hold it against them :) I was EXCITED!

& this one shows the back pretty well. Plus, I just love this picture of Mr. Quiche & I!

We then proceeded to REALLY dance (& sing!) the night away.

Oh, that microphone was a blessing and a curse. But mostly, it was just fun :) I *think* we're rockin' out to Livin' on a Prayer here.

I love a packed floor at a wedding reception, and our friends & family did not let us down. We brought our Dance Party USA (which we typically hold in any number of living rooms) down to Jamaica, mon!

Get down, Nic!

I don't really know what else to say...the pictures speak for themselves! I love the look on everyones faces - there is nothing but pure joy & FUN.

Our Fan/Programs came in handy all night long - it was H.O.T.

Mr. Q's cousin then took the mic and freestyled the best freestyle I've heard in a long time. Seriously. He also said it was the first time he ever did it - he was inspired by all the love and new friendships that were formed over this incredible weekend - but I don't believe him. He is a rockstar ;)

We also threw in 2 or 3 more slow songs - but this was not the night for anything except gettin' we ended up deleting the rest of the slow songs from the playlist.

Getting ready for some fancy footwork...this guy has moves you've never seen (trust me) :)

One last dip from my hubby!

I couldn't have asked for a better party to celebrate our marriage. I've said this 100 times & I'll say it 100 more - we were surrounded and enveloped by nothing by sheer love & joy from our amazing family and friends. This is what matters. This love gives me goosebumps! I am one lucky girl :)

I can't wait to share with you shenanigans that were going down in our faux-to booth - some of my favorite pictures of the night!
