The iCRAVE Rainbow Chapel LIVES ON!
POSTED IN Blog August 14, 2011
On Saturday July 30th, Cloud 10 Couples felt like we were dancing across fluffy clouds: elated on the energy of love, freedom and equality, being at the Historic Pop Up Chapel event in Central Park. We were immediately mesmerized by the Rainbow Chapel, which was one of the winning architectural entries constructed especially for this historic event by iCRAVE. After meeting the architect Robert DelPazzo of iCRAVE, who was there to supervise the event, we loved it even more. Standing in the Rainbow Chapel itself was like having a rainbow shot straight through the center of those fluffy clouds…a vibrant, colorful injection to heighten the potent emotions that were already floating about, aach plastic strand catching the suns rays and refracting back into faces painted with the light of love.
24 couples were united in front of the world to see in celebration of the long awaited marriage equality in New York. Hundreds of volunteers, friends and loved ones all gathererd in celebration under the generous genius of the Pop Up Chapel & The Knot, as well as the eager and curious onlookers strolling by into Central Park. After a day of I Do’s that have waited for years, countless bottles of water, millions of bubbles and the endless tears of happiness and true love – we were full & Exhausted…but little did we know upon arrival that we’d be going home with a chapel that night…
That’s Right!!! We are now the proud owners of The Historic Rainbow Chapel that was designed, produced and donated by iCRAVE. Thanks to the generosity of Robert DelPazzo and the entire team at iCRAVE, the Rainbow Chapel will live on under the intricate care of Cloud 10 Couples and our wedding/event ministry.
