Videos of choreographed wedding dances are a dime a dozen on YouTube. However, this one right here is special.
Groom Sean Rajaee and his seven groomsmen (a.k.a. his fabulous backup dancers) were able to pull of an epic dance routine for his new bride Ariana. The dedicated groomsmen flew in from across the country, either learning the routine last minute or via video tutorial. Incorporating a dozen mega-hits from the last two decades, Sean and the Smooth Seven sail through perfectly-timed dance moves, practically guaranteeing any woman who watches to experience these phases of wonder:
As Beyonce’s song “Crazy in Love” starts playing and the men start dancing, women will acknowledge that that groom is a good looking fella and that yes, they’re all (relatively) good dancers.
Then, as the song transitions into “Bootylicious,” women will get a little more intrigued. The men obviously get bonus points for choosing to dance to this, not to mention that all the groomsmen are so into their dance moves. Not one of them looks like they’re embarrassed.
At this point, us girls have almost reached the stage of “I totally want to marry this guy.” But not before we burst out laughing as we watch him literally shake his booty in front of his bride. Cute! Plus, his facial expressions are priceless.
Now comes the part where we start tearing up. It’s the Backstreet Boys (BSB)! Come on, who wouldn’t tear up at “I Want it That Way”? BSB is Ariana’s favourite band — cue teenage/young adult memories. Goosebumps galore.
Just when you think it can’t get any better, it does. The boys don fake mustaches and start dancing to a Persian song. Damn, Sean’s in touch with his culture too. This is too much. We think our ovaries are about to explode. And, alas, the end is nigh.
The wonderful performance is topped off with Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” — which is so overplayed, but in this case we all make an exception because why not?!
As the whole thing comes to a close, we’re probably sitting there awestruck, bawling our eyes out and hoping that we’ll find someone as funny and talented as Sean. Sigh. One can dream, right?
