Snow Wedding at Fort Hamilton

Peter plays hockey at Brooklyn’s Lefrak Center, so he told her that he wanted to go to “practice” for an upcoming season game, but Sophia had no idea what was coming. They both invited some friends as a double date and so they could get some good pictures.

Peter had a Snapchat filter made that said “Will you marry me?.” Haha! The filter was set up to go online at 6pm, so as soon as it turned 6pm he took Sophia to the middle of the ice rink. He asked her to take a selfie. Knowing her she would want to check the picture and roll through the filters.

Peter told her to read the filter and while she was still in shock, it definitely surprised her to look up above the rink.  All their family and friends were waiting with big signs that said, “Will you marry Sophia?” After that, Peter dropped to one knee, got the ring out, and confessed his love for her with all his heart and asked if she would spend the rest of her life with him. She said “Yes”, marking one of the happiest moments of their lives!

Of course, there were many more pictures taken on their wedding day. They also requested Around Town Entertainment to perform at their wedding as they were huge fans of their cover songs. Around Town Entertainment’s Altitude Band was honored to have been chosen for their special day to play at Fort Hamilton’s Community Club in Brooklyn, NY. Of course, Around Town Entertainment didn’t disappoint as they gladly gave the audience a fantastic show.

Fort Hamilton is a unique venue as the largest military installation and the only “active” military base in the New York metro area. The original garrison has since been converted into the Community Club- a New York City historic landmark. The Community Club offers the perfect setting to play in front of a large crowd with it’s beautiful grounds that add a sense of history while providing beauty to the wedding. 

The day started out picture perfect. Sophia and Peter had an outdoor winter ceremony that was breathtaking with the Verrazzano-Narrows bridge in the background. The weather cooperated fully, so that was also helpful. Guests were excited to be there and were impressed with the views.

As family and friends gathered there seats, a DJ provided by Around Town Entertainment pumped up the guests. The DJ played a set of various emotional ballads including Coldplay “Yellow” as the bride walked down the aisle. The song was then mixed into BBMak “Back Here” as bride and groom exchange vows followed by an encore of Lifehouse’s “You and I.” Very fitting to end a beautiful ceremony!

Next up, was cocktails and reception in the terrace, which was a perfect way to enjoy the wonderful summer Saturday evening. After that, the wedding band, Around Town Entertainment’s Altitude Band set the mood for the reception. The bride and groom took center stage in the main room. First, the NY wedding band introduced the newly married couple by playing “We Found Love” by Rihanna, Calvin Harris. Then they had their first dance to “Alone” by Marshmello. After that, the father danced with his daughter while the band played Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.” The mother and son performed their duet to “You’re Still the One” by Shania Twain.

The guests packed the dance floor all night as the Altitude Band played hit after hit ending a very memorable night of sweat, dance, and energy! Every performance by the Altitude Band reaches the highest level and you will leave breathless.

Best wishes Sophia and Peter!
