The ultimate music lover’s dream wedding


If there ever was a perfect setting to celebrate the love story of true music fans, this is it!

Earlier this fall, Ling Fong and Peter Kozak celebrated a stunning wedding at the historic and legendary Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY. They met in the theater sanctuary’s bar and music club, Garcia’s, years ago.

When I first met Pete & Ling, I knew right away that The Cap was the perfect location for their wedding. They told me how they first met at a show at the Capitol Theater, talked about their mutual love for music and showed me the place where they first kissed in front of Garcia’s scene, ”said Emily Schmalholz, Head of Special Events at the Capitol Theater. Their love for each other and the important role the theater played in their romance was incredibly clear. From that day forward… I knew I had to help them create their dream wedding at the Capitol Theater. “

Some details of the event to note:

  • The lyrics to “Our House” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were written in the aisle
  • The ceremony took place under a multi-layered feather garland with blue and green butterflies lighting up the Cape Town wall
  • A marching band surprised guests from the balcony after the couple said “yes” and drove everyone back to Garcia’s for cocktail hour
  • Kozak is one of a group that often performs in the hall and performed during the wedding.
  • The party kicked off with multiple bands, a dinner at the plate, a CYR wheel performance, high-energy dance sets and each table named after an artist who performed The Cap.

Event vendors included: Event designer Jes Gordon, event planner Luna & Charlie Events, caterer Matt Miller and Ling’s cousin Katie Fong designed her dress

“In Cape Town, couples have this unique opportunity to celebrate love on the same stage that music legends performed”, Schmalholz said. “Music has this incredible ability to uplift, celebrate and bring people together.

Pete & Ling’s wedding embodied everything I love about my job, bringing together music and love. “
