Patrick and Kristen’s Dance Party - Bali Hai Wedding

Patrick and Kristen danced to Ray LaMontagne's "You Are the Best Thing" for their first dance. 

San Diego DJ, Justin Kanoya, with the Ereno's at the Bali Hai.

Patrick and Kristen sealed their vows at the Bali Hai in San Diego on June 10, 2016. What followed, as usual, was a dance party. But there was nothing usual about this dance party.

It was one of those nights. One of those nights, when during the dance party I wondered how this could be so fun? How can these people dance to anything and everything? One of those nights when at the end, I thought to myself, was this the best dance I’ve ever DJ’d?

It just might have been.

Even the photographers at Clove and Kin agree … here’s a screencap from their blog post. I’ll probably just screenprint this on a t-shirt and wear it 24/7.

By the way, check out their full blog post about this amazing wedding, including the beautiful photos - many of which are part of this blog post. (Did anyone else just read that in the voice of Stefon from Saturday Night Live?)

This party had it all, honeymoon dance, anniversary dance, tearful father/daughter dance, tush-push with the bride and her girlfriends and even an encore.
