From the bride, on the first dance:

"We are not the most romantic couple (proposal being an exception). I’m a HUGE Michael Jackson fan. We had all the groomsmen and bridesmaids come out to different MJ songs. We did our first dance as we were introduced into the reception. We also “walked” into an MJ song, Beat it! This was going to be our first dance. We had even taken a lesson from a professional MJ performer and learned some of the steps to Beat It. So we do the slightly overplayed move, where we walk out seemingly normally, but then I put on my silver MJ glove and Rajesh put on this black MJ hat and we started to do the choreographed dance. To make it even better after a couple mins we have our bridal party join in!  This was something I have been wanting to do forever!!! I’m lucky to have a guy that was willing to do this all for me even though he is not huge MJ fan."

Enjoy the rest of your day, ladies!
