Retro Party Beside the River

Yuli Hsu & Keith Fisher
The Beaver Del Hotel & Campground, East Branch, N.Y.
September 20, 2008

A shared passion for Argentine tango led Yuli and Keith to cross paths. “We’d see each other at the milongas—these late-night tango dance parties held around the city,” Keith says. It took three years for them to finally get together, and four more to get engaged. “Argentine tango’s golden age was in the twenties and thirties—we’re obviously into that era,” he says. So it follows that they had a vintage-themed reception along the Delaware River, just two hours from the city. “Friends had recently bought an old hunting-and-fishing camp turned hotel built in the thirties. We fell in love with it.” The newlyweds’ first dance? “Words of Love,” by Buddy Holly—reworked for a tango, of course.
