at Anthony’s Pier 9 in New Windsor.  They made their introduction to the pumpin’ “Boom Boom Pow” by the Black Eyed Peas.

Beth’s auburn hair was drawn up into an elegant, layered updo reminiscent of the 1930’s.

I understood the significance of their chosen first dance song, John Legend’s “Stay With You,” after the Best Man’s toast.  He explained that ‘Los had a huge “man crush” on John Legend.  The Best Man, Aaron, had known Beth since she was two months old.  He traced the growth of the couples relationship back the ten years earlier when Carlos returned from Oklahoma as something that was always meant to be.

One of the most adorable moments was when the flower girl requested, “Fire Burning” by Sean Kingston.  She bounced around the dance floor, singing along with the lyrics, “Shorty fire burning on the dance floor,” and ran off to drag her father out to dance.  He lifted her off her feet as she sang at the top of her lungs.

We ended the night with hip hop, a touch of reggaeton and a surprise request for the catchy “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus for Beth and her girls.

Beth and Carlos are off to their Puerto Rican honeymoon.  Congratulations, guys!
