After cocktails, guests were invited inside for dinner and dancing. Ali and Sam’s grand entrance song was “You Make My Dreams Come True” by Hall & Oates. Immediately following their grand entrance, the new Mr. and Mrs. took to the dance floor for their first dance. They chose “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Frankie Valli. After dinner, came more toasts and cake cutting. Ali and Sam chose “My Girl” by The Temptations as their cake cutting song.

After cake cutting came time for the specialty dances. Ali and her dad danced to “Father & Daughter” by Paul Simon and Sam and his mom danced to “Sunshine Of My Life” by Stevie Wonder. Then it was time for open dancing! DJ Alex tore it up with hits such as “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd, “In My Feelings” by Drake, and “Shut Up and Dance With Me” by Walk The Moon.
