What We Danced To: Louis Armstrong’s “La Vie En Rose”

by Vi-An Nguyen

Their First Dance Song: Ashley and Nikolay have “very different tastes in music," Ashley says, so they went with a classic love song: “La Vie En Rose" by Louis Armstrong.

The Dance Party Music: The couple hired a jazz band to play upbeat music all their guests could enjoy. “We avoided any of your 'typical' wedding music (no Brick House or Chicken Dance) and said absolutely no 'Top 40,'" Ashley says.
