If your calendar hasn’t been filled with weddings this season, we are here to help! While weddings may be an event that you dread, spend too much time and money traveling and hobnobbing, we may have a solution that fits you (and potentially your special someone) and alleviates all the stress.
Ever dreamed of getting married at Lincoln Center? They’re inviting hundreds of couples to their 16-acre campus for “New York’s Biggest Day”, offering New Yorkers the chance to celebrate love—from couples getting married for the first time, to those renewing vows or simply celebrating their love for the city. Inspired by the first ever (Re)Wedding in 2022 which welcomed New Yorkers whose weddings were canceled or diminished because of the pandemic, this year they are throwing “New York’s Biggest Day”, an iconic Wedding filled with dance, music, poetry and more, that could only happen at Lincoln Center!
Conceived by Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Award-winning Director Scott Wittman, with music direction by Bette Sussman, the celebration brings hundreds of couples together for a multicultural ceremony with various faith leaders, live musical performances from special guests, and culminates with desserts, karaoke, and a joyous party. Come celebrate love!
New York’s Biggest Day is hosted by NYC legend, comedian, and international entertainer Murray Hill. The ceremony includes special performances by Met Opera soprano Latonia Moore, a duet with New York City Ballet’s Sara Mearns and Robbie Fairchild choreographed by Josh Bergasse, and a string quartet of current students and alumni from The Juilliard School, as well as long-time Lincoln Center friends Bridget Everett and Dan Finnerty, Jaime Lozano and Florencia Cuenca, and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City. Couples will process in and out of the ceremony to the energetic and exciting sounds of the Jina Brass Band. The evening culminates in an epic party on the Dance Floor hosted by drag icon and DJ, Lady Bunny.
Jina Brass Band: Sunny Jain (musical director), Arun Luthra (soprano sax), Emily Pecoraro (alto sax), Lynn Ligammari (tenor sax), Claire Daly (bari sax), Bryan Walters (trumpet), David Adewumi (trumpet), Kai Sandoval (trumpet), Dave Smoota Smith (trombone), Toby Ekpunobi (trombone), J. Walter Hawkes (trombone), Kenny Bentley (sousaphone), Joe Exely (sousaphone), Greg Gonzalez (snare drum), Paula Winter (surdo), Mankaran Bhasin (dhol)
