When it comes to proposals, Andrew and Larissa Catapano take the cake. Andrew popped the question while the pair were on vacation in Paris, at the iconic Eiffel 58 restaurant on the tower's first level. "After the proposal, we walked outside on the overlook, where it was coordinated to have our wedding song playing over the PA," Larissa says.
The couple's classy and elegant wedding at Franklin Park Conservatory included a unity hand-washing ceremony and some unique musical elements.
Andrew learned to play piano and staged a "power outage" during his and Larissa's first dance. "Then he and his groomsmen set up a keyboard, and he played it while our wedding photographer played double-duty as back-up singer," Larissa says. The group serenaded Larissa for the rest of the song.
But that wasn't all.
Andrew also performed a drum solo from Walk the Moon's "Shut Up and Dance" on a custom vintage Slingerland drum kit that was gifted to him by a client.
