Make your way down the aisle into the “Chapel of Love” and be greeted by our “minister”, comedian Shawn Pelofsky. Off the heels of the DOMA defeat, you should have some fun with this theme! It’s going to be an amazing night and we’re excited to be back at Mardi Gras World with the amazing DJ ABEL (NY).
