New York Gay Wedding Celebration

Marta Block


The Kaptur Memory team was proud to be part of the same-sex marriage celebrations in NY on Saturday, July 30th when 24 couples were married in Central Park right by the Merchant’s Gate.  The lovely people at Pop Up Chapel and The Knot decided they wanted to do something special to commemorate marriage equality. They came up with this amazing idea to create the largest Pop Up Chapel in New York City and provide 24 couples with all of the wedding goodies they’d ever dreamed of. Why 24 couples? Well, since the Marriage Equality bill was passed on June 24th, the Pop Up Chapel organizers felt that ’24' made perfect sense.

Everything was donated out of love. Flowers, officiants photographers, stylists, water, tissues and waterproof mascara were at the ready to make this day perfect for the 24 couples who were getting married. Rumor has it that the gift bags weighed over forty pounds full of great gifts like champagne and mini-wedding cakes.

There was a colorful rainbow chapel, designed by ICRAVE, where couples literally tied the knot and the “Kiss” chapel, designed by Z-A Studios, where 12 couples had their first kiss as a married couple.

Kaptur created a special memory of the day and we’d love to have you be a part of it.  If you were there, please add yourself to the guest list and add your pictures to this growing collection of memories documented throughout the day.  You can see the Kaptur on our site.
