Improv Everywhere, the NYC troupe that all stood still in Grand Central Station last year, threw an improvised wedding reception for a random couple who’d just gotten married in NYC’s City Hall.
The IE members came decked out in suits, tuxedos, and inexpensive matching “bridesmaid’s dresses” from Old Navy. One member approached the couple and their family, pretending to be throwing a free reception “courtesy of the mayor’s office”, and invited them out into the park for a party.
The bride and groom had never met any of the improvisers before, but they went along with it and had an hourlong party in the rain, complete with cake, cider toasts, bouquet, and dancing. Full story and lots of nice photos here.
I love that there are people in the world who spend their Wednesday afternoons putting this kind of event together, and I love that the couple & their families just said, “uh, ok!” to the insta-party. Awesome possum!
