Two years ago Jon Hill came up with an idea to throw a fake wedding. I pitched the idea to Polaroid and they were willing to support our creative endeavors.
HOW TO PLAY
STEP 1. INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
People ahead of time volunteered to be guests or apart of the wedding party.
STEP 2. PICK YOUR WEDDING PARTY
Of those few, names were drawn at random and people were given slips of paper stating their role and requirements IE: maid of honor (give a speech), father of the bride (walk down the aisle), drunk ex-boyfriend (make a scene), etc.
MEANWHILE, the guests were unaware of who was chosen.
STEP 3. PROPOSE
Only the groom knew who the bride would be (according to his slip of paper). The groom then had to creatively propose to the unsuspecting bride.
STEP 4. GET READY
Everyone had to get ready (ties for the guys, flowers for the girls)
STEP 5. GET “MARRIED”
STEP 6. IMPROVISE YOUR VOWS
STEP 7. CELEBRATE (The reason for throwing this party in the first place)
Random speeches. A Band. A Bouncy Castle. You know, the usual.
A year and a half later I finally am able to show you all. This has been privately sitting in my vimeo for far too long and I’m sorry! And thanks to everyone for coming out and playing along! And thanks to Jon Hill and Katie Scott who helped pull this off so wonderfully!
