What better way to top off your NYC pride experience than with a wedding? Your own wedding, that is—or a complete stranger's.

During Pride weekend, June 27-29, the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, will offer weddings in a popup chapel on the terrace of their rooftop bar. Just as importnat: The bar will remain open during the ceremonies. 

The chapel, named “MAXIKIOSCO,” is a piece by artist Tom Fruin, is made of found Plexiglas riveted together with steel and has been exhibited across the United States and Europe. 

The marriage package includes an outdoor ceremony in the chapel with choice of afternoon, evening, or midnight depending on availability, room for up to 20 guests, an officiant to perform secular and non-secular ceremonies, a photographer to take one portrait of the wedding party, and a champagne toast (floral bouquets are extra). 

The couple only needs to provide a marriage license and at least two witnesses, whom the hotel can also offer upon request.
