Michael Pasternak and his fiancé, Ilisa, had all the trappings in place for a contemporary wedding. But at the same time, they knew they couldn’t let their special day pass without at least a smidgen of tradition, something “reminiscent of the Old Country.”
But rather than rely on someone else’s playbook, they decided to add their own flair with a bit of showmanship at the reception.
The guests may have initially been confused and embarrassed on behalf of this silly man, who made it seem like he and his friends had arrived at the wrong reception hall: “Sorry! It’s not the Radisson, I’m at the wrong wedding, I’m sorry!” he apologizes profusely. “Go ahead, eat, eat. My apologies!”
But then he turns around. Buddy, you’ve already made a fool of yourself once … just walk away. But no, he approaches the MC yet again, asking, “Is this the wedding of Michael and Ilisa, by any chance?”
Moments later, several friends push their way through the doors, shaking hands and greeting guests seated at the tables as they make their way to the front. Of course, it turns out there’s no mistake; these aren’t wedding crashers at all– they’re the night’s entertainment!
The real fun begins when the music starts, and the five men begin a choreographed dance, all while balancing wine bottles on their heads.
How many hours of practice (and sweeping up shards of glass) do you think it took take to nail down this act?!
This wedding performance marked the birth of The Amazing Bottle Dancers, a group which now performs at dozens of special events, including weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs.
Watch these incredible “wedding crashers” dance in the video below, and share to spread the joy!
