Courtney and Todd in Washington, DC

Courtney and Todd performed their first dance to "Life Less Ordinary," by Carbon Leaf. "We didn’t want the first dance to be too formal," Courtney says. "We skipped lessons and picked a song by a band that Todd introduced me to when we first started dating." Escapade, a 10-person band booked through Bialek’s Music, played Motown and classic rock songs throughout the night.
