Danny and Stefanie’s Dance Party - Coasterra Wedding

Danny and Stefanie enter their wedding reception to the tune of Icona Pop, "I Love It." And they did indeed love it. 

Danny and Stefanie walk down the aisle after saying "I Do" at their wedding at Coasterra on San Diego Bay. 

One of San Diego's newest event venues in 2016 is nestled at one end of Harbor Island, on the shore of San Diego Bay. The prime location, with its waterfront view of the downtown skyline, is making it one of the most desired spots for a San Diego wedding.

Danny and Stefanie are one of the first in a handful of couples who celebrated and partied in the venues inaugural year. It was an honor for me to be a part of their amazing dance party. 

I felt I was a bit of a kindred spirit to the two of them, as they met at work and started dating while keeping things "hush hush" among co-workers. This is essentially how my wife and I started out more than a decade ago (first co-workers, then a couple, now married). 

While many think working and living together is not possible, we made it work and I know Danny and Stefanie will too. Here's a look at their setlist and special dance songs.
