Riverview Chamber Players performed this flash mob marriage proposal, in collaboration with Urbanity Dance, for Megan and her partner Caitlin. This is was a complete surprise to Caitlin, but her response was a resounding, YES! The crowd erupted into applause and eyes filled with tears as friends and those attending the PAX East video game conference gathered around to witness the flash mob.
Megan asked us to perform "Eyes on Me" from Final Fantasy VIII, a song from this video game that was special to the couple.
It's not every day that you get to partake in a flash mob marriage proposal. Thanks to Heart Bandits, a proposal planning company, Riverview Chamber Players was asked to perform for Megan and Caitlin's big day. What better to perform than the couples' song, "Eyes on Me" from the Final Fantasy VIII at the PAX East convention. And no flash mob is complete without dancers, so we were thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with Urbanity Dance.
Check out the video of the marriage proposal. Thank you to iWedFilms for sharing the video. iWed Films
You all brought my proposal vision to life! It was an experience that both Caitlin and I will treasure forever, and it wouldn't have been possible without Riverview Chamber Players.
All of the musicians were professional, talented, and elegantly dressed (absolutely nailed the aesthetic I was looking for). Rebecca, the music director, she is extremely friendly, welcoming, and all around a pleasure to work with. She responds to emails promptly and answers all questions with plenty of details; I never felt out of the loop or confused about anything.
Overall, Riverview Chamber Players exceeded my expectations at all levels, and we will definitely be reaching out again to discuss options for the wedding!—Megan Hacker
