If you're a dancing pro like Dancing with the Stars' Kym Johnson, donning a second wedding dress that allows you to really bust a move during your reception is obviously a must. With all the dancing Johnson and her now-husband, Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec, did at their California wedding last weekend — they had two "first" dances! — the bride knew she'd have to trade in her big ball gown for something a little more pirouette-friendly. And the unique, sultry frock (see photo below) Johnson chose scored perfect 10 from us!
After a short, five-month engagement, Johnson and Herjavec — who first took to the ballroom together last year as DWTS partners! — hit the dance floor yet again, after tying the knot last Sunday at the Fours Seasons in Beverly Hills, California. For her walk down the aisle, the dancing pro stunned in a strapless Monique Lhuillier ballgown, free of any sparkly embellishment for a look that was clean and classic, but made modern with voluminous tiered skirt. Beyond beautiful yes, but that big ballgown skirt was not exactly conducive for dancing the night away at their star-studded reception. So like the pro she is, Johnson did a quick costume change into a second wedding dress for her post-"I do's" party that was every bit as gorgeous as her first — but a whole lot more daring!
For her reception, the Australian dancer slipped into a custom ensemble featuring a cropped lace bodice with a down-to-there V-neckline, and a sheer tulle skirt. "The costume department made it for me," Johnson explained to People magazine. "I put it on for the dancing!" And it's a good thing she did, considering all the grooving this bride and groom did!
The newlyweds actually performed not one, but two first dances for their guests. According to Us Weekly, their first first dance was to Etta James' "At Last," with the couple doing a classic waltz to the ultra-romantic number. Then, the pair's bridal party also hit the dance floor to join the couple in a group dance to LunchMoney Lewis' "Bills" — a song that's particularly special to the newlyweds. The 2015 hit was actually the first song Herjavec and Johnson ever danced together back during their DWTS days.
Two first dances and two wedding dresses?! We're seriously jealous of this ultra-lucky bride!
