A bride in Utah and her father have put themselves in the running for most epic father-daughter wedding dance ever after they surprised the 400 wedding guests with an awesome choreographed dance.
At her October 8 wedding, 25-year-old Mikayla Ellison Phillips and her dad, Nathan Ellison put a huge smile on everyone's faces with an almost four-minute dance mash up.
Dance has always been very important to Phillips, who is a trained dancer who actually met her husband Cody Phillips when they were dance partners with the International Folk Dance Ensemble at Brigham Young University.
"I've danced my whole life but my dad hasn't," Phillips told ABC News. But the big dance number was actually Ellison's idea.
"I'm the oldest and the only girl so that was my dad's only chance to do something like this," said Phillips. "He, for years, has talked about doing that and he finally convinced me."
The father-daughter duo started slow performing a classic slow dance to the song "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle, but very quickly the song changed to M.C. Hammer’s "U Can’t Touch This" and the fun really began.
The duo began a montage of icon dances.
They danced to Sugarhill Gang’s “Apache (Jump On It)":
They busted a move to LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem":
Went old school with Peaches & Herb's "Shake Your Groove Thing":
They father-daughter team performed Bollywood moves:
They dropped it low:
They did the Carlton to Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual”:
Then they brought the house down to Dawin's "Dessert":
And finally they got their NSync on to "Bye Bye Bye”:
Needless to say the guests at the wedding lost their minds.
Amazingly Phillips and Ellison only spent a week choreographing and rehearsing the dance number.
"Every night [in the week] prior to the wedding we’d run through it a few times," Phillips told ABC News. "I think since we’d talked about it for years that it was pretty easy for it to come together."
And while Phillips said it "seemed stressful" at the time to be rehearsing a dance routine with her father just days away from her wedding day, she says she's very happy that she could make her dad's dream come true.
"The most fun thing was seeing my dad and how happy he was," Phillips said. "That was a dream fulfilled."
Thankfully videographer Bethany Petersen captured the pair in action and . Over 200,000 views later, there are a lot of people out there who have loved seeing how happy Ellison was as well.
