The Piano Arrangement

Zachary and Irma met through a piano class during one summer. They were both very nervous to be in a new setting, around new people. Zachary was always very friendly, always going out his way to talk to Irma. Although she was not ready to open up to a new relationship at the time, his friendship and persistence stuck with her. A few months later, they went on their first date. They both knew that their relationship was something special right from the start.

The proposal Zachary had planned was a complete surprise! It was absolutely perfect. One day her friend picked Irma up, and they drove to the piano class together. They did this all the time, so she didn’t think anything of it.

As she walked in the building, she saw a sign pointing to her through another door. When Irma opened the door, she heard music and was handed roses by some of her classmates. When she turned the corner, Zachary was sitting there in the same place they met in class. He started playing a piano instrumental cover of Kanye West’s Runaway. When he finished, he got on one knee and asked Irma to marry him. After they kissed, cheers broke out! When the lights came on, all their closest friends and family members came out to take pictures to remember the unforgettable moment. 

Zachary and Irma married at the Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn, NY. The venue itself is beautiful and the location is great! We were happy to be back at the Greenpoint Loft  performing and even more excited to play in front of Zachary and Irma’s friends and family!  

The bride and groom had 100 people and the venue fit everyone comfortably for the day ceremony. Guests were surrounded by beautiful large windows around the space that overlooked the Manhattan skyline. As the bride walked down the aisle to meet the groom, a pianist provided by Around Town Entertainment performed an instrumental cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” The bride and groom then chose “A Whole New World” Aladdin as their recessional song, ending a very romantic ceremony.

The cocktails and reception were held on the second floor rooftop, overlooking the main floor. There was a gorgeous balcony there and everyone enjoyed drinks with a background of the East River and Manhattan! Guests kept talking about how wonderful the space is and how good the music from Around Town Entertainment’s jazz trio was. The weather was beautiful so guests spent the majority of their time outside relaxing by the fireplace while listening to the jazz trio. 

Once the party moved into a rustic barn for the reception, it turned the NYC skyline view into part of the wedding decor! With views of NYC, the reception’s location was outstanding! The couple chose Around Town Entertainment’s Around Town Band for their live music because of their constant high energy and infamous cover songs. The space and music was perfect for guests to dance all night and sing classic hits together. Some of the favorite artists covered by the wedding band included Robyn, Chance the Rapper, Alice Merton, and many more! 

Zachary and Irma are still raving about how gorgeous and original the space is and how much they loved the music from Around Town Entertainment! The Greenpoint Loft will truly blow any type of guest away. We are very appreciative for having to play at this venue!
