Who doesn’t love a surprise first dance! Especially when it’s set to live music overlooking Brooklyn Bridge.
Amy reached out a few months prior to her May 2019 elopement in NYC. She explained that she and her fiancee lived in Chicago and they planned to elope in NYC and fly out for Europe the very same day. Since they wouldn’t be having a wedding reception, she wanted to have a very intimate and low-key surprise first dance.
Amy and Krystal would elope at City Hall and then cross over to Brooklyn Bridge park for pictures. The micro-wedding party included a handful of close girlfriends and the photographer. While the group walked along the boardwalk our musicians would begin to play John Legend’s “All of Me” and follow up with “Your Song” by Elton John.
Are you thinking about a celebrating with a surprise musical performance?
We worked super closely on the planning and coordination with Alexis at City Love Photography. She took all the amazing photos in this post and was instrumental in bringing the day together!
Our mobile “busking” duo included Adam Lomeo on Guitar and Brittany Henderson on vocals. We set up with a battery powered PA system, which really helped as we had to contend with some wind off the water.

The surprise came off beautifully and it was an absolutely perfect moment with hugs and tears all around!
Who are you planning to wow with a surprise performance?
