In this FineLine Weddings blog article we will highlight the exciting journey that Jackie and Nick’s wedding dance video has taken.
About the Wedding Dance
Jackie and Nick planned to do something exciting months before the wedding. During the initial conversation they told us they were planning to do something really fun for their first wedding dance. Their routine was based off one of YouTube’s first sensations: The Evolution of Dance (video posted at the end of this article). During YouTube’s early days The Evolution of Dance video was YouTube’s #1 most watched video for many years. The video features comedian Judson Laipply performing a medley of dance moves from the 1950’s until present day. That’s exactly the spirit Jackie & Nick injected into their dance routine, but with a few additional popular song choices!

Jackie and Nick’s video exploded online overnight! Within the first day it was being picked up and discussed by blog writers in the local area and immediately began spreading through Facebook. Just one week after the wedding, msn.com featured Jackie & Nick’s wedding dance video on their front page for an entire day! On their website alone the video received over 100,00 views, 35,000 Facebook ‘likes’, and hundreds of comments.
A few days later on the 102.5 WDVE morning show, the radio hosts were discussing Jackie & Nick’s video and posted it to their website because they enjoyed it so much! That same week the Pittsburgh Tribune Review newspaper contacted Jackie & Nick because they were writing a news piece about the amazing wedding dance.
