Every Saturday morning when Evan Hegge was growing up, he, his sisters and his parents would do their chores while listening to the radio and dancing around the house to pass the time.

"We would make fun of my parents for how they danced and they would make fun of how we danced," Hegge told The Huffington Post.

So when Hegge tied the knot with Jenna Van Heek on Saturday in Yankton, South Dakota, he and his mom Pam incorporated the family pastime into the big day and went head-to-head in a surprise dance-off in front of all of the guests.

"The only people who knew were my immediate family and the DJ," Hegge said. "In fact, Jenna told me the day after the wedding that after my mom and my slow dance to 'What a Wonderful World,' she was really bummed we didn't do anything. She thought we were lame until the dance-off took place."

At the reception, Hegge and his mom hit the dance floor, bustin' a move to a medley of popular songs including "Get Up Offa That Thing" by James Brown, "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls, "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham and "Teach Me How To Dougie" by Cali Swag District.

"Everyone seemed to love it and kept asking if someone recorded it," Hegge said. "It was great watching people smile and laugh. That's what I love most about the dance-off is that it makes people smile and laugh, which everyone needs in their life."
