"All I really wanted for my wedding was a fabulous dance party; it was really important that our guests have a ton of fun. I made sure to buy a wedding dress I could dance in—I even did a few practice moves in the dressing room to be sure it was com- fortable. On the wedding day, we set up the dance floor on a deck overlooking Lake Travis, outside of Austin, and our DJ played everything from Brandi Carlile's 'The Story'—our first-dance song—to salsa and merengue. Toward the end of the night, he played Nicki Minaj's 'Moment 4 Life,' and everyone went nuts, jumping up and down. My hair was flying, and I was so happy—grinning like crazy, just stupid happy! I didn't want the night to end."
