Maroon 5 Crashes A Romantic Carondelet House Wedding

On your wedding day, you’re already on cloud nine, surrounded by such an overwhelming amount of love and joy. So what happens if one of the top music stars of today just happens to stop by and perform? That’s exactly what happened for this lucky couple, when Maroon 5 crashed their Carondelet House celebration to perform and film their hit “Sugar.” Thank goodness Love & You Video was there to catch it all because it’s literally hard to believe; this wedding film is gonna be a hard one to beat.

From Love & You Video… On December 6th, 2014 we filmed Melanie and Ryan’ s wedding at Carondelet House in Los Angeles. It was such a beautiful wedding, full of little details in the design and a very personal and sweet ceremony. The super team of wedding vendors made their wedding day go flawlessly. Little did we know that at the end of the night we would also have a surprise of the lifetime!

We were told that there would be a surprise after their first dance, but not even the wedding planner knew what it would be. The groom had informed the planner but wanted to keep the surprise hidden.

As the guests were finishing up dinner, we saw a big ‘Hollywood Production’ team arrive and they started to set up a stage for a band in the front room. At this point we figured that the surprise would be a band performing, but we were still trying to figure out why it was taking a 20 person crew to set up for this band.

Turns out that it was not a regular wedding band. To everyone’s surprise, Maroon 5 crashed the wedding! They not only performed their new single “Sugar,” they also filmed the song’s music video.

We found out that Maroon 5 crashed several wedding that night and Melanie and Ryan were one of the lucky couples that got to experience a live performance from the band.

Besides singing their new single “Sugar” twice, Adam Levine also serenaded the couple during their first dance to their classic hit “She Will Be Loved.” It really was a very sweet, beautiful and totally unique moment.

Getting to watch and film the excitement of the newlywed couple and all their wedding guests is something that we will remember forever.
