Dance Me to the Moon: Teresa + Saul's Wedding in Los Angeles

Teresa and Saul met at a local gym when they were in high school and became great friends – they started dating in their early 20s, then Saul proposed over dinner at the Bel Air Hotel. The couple chose the Vibiana as the location for both their ceremony and their reception, impressed with the elegance and glamour of the venue with its all-white magical cathedral inside and chandeliers on the alter.

The most special part of the wedding for Teresa and Saul? The first dance:

From the bride: We took dance classes at the very last minute. I think we did 10 dance classes in a matter of 3 weeks! It was his idea, so I was skeptical about how fast we could learn a dance and actually look like we knew what we were doing. Once it was time to dance in front our guests, it was so much fun! I am so happy we took those classes. We danced to a song by Nat King Cole, called “Unforgettable.” Our first dance and first dance song is something that we will definitely never forget!
