About Pop The Knot

Pop The Knot started when Michele Velazquez, owner of the world-renowned Marriage Proposal Planning company The Heart Bandits, began to receive a lot of inquiries for pop-up weddings and New York City elopements.  The brides didn’t want a boring City Hall wedding, they were asking for unique venues like rooftops, art galleries, private gardens, etc. Of course, since they weren’t planning a full wedding, they didn’t have a huge budget.  This sparked an idea with Michele!  Why not reach out to amazing wedding venues and find out when they have down time on their schedules, and fill those slots with quick and easy pop-up weddings?  That is how Pop The Knot was born!

We match our brides with venues and then we supply the critical parts of the elopement; an officiant, photographer, and a bouquet…all for one affordable price.  Check out our Elopement Packages!


Unlike other pop-up wedding companies, we offer you a dream elopement without having to share your venue with other couples. We have exclusive deals with popular and unique venues to offer a pop-up ceremony for a fraction of the cost. A photographer, officiant, and a bouquet comes with every package making Pop The Knot a one-stop-shop for your pop-up wedding.


Earn extra revenue by renting our couples your space for an hour pop-up wedding. Pop-up weddings have little or no set up so you can squeeze them in between events, on slow days, or off-peak hours & seasons.


We bring extra business to many vendors such as photographers, videographers, officiants, musicians, limo companies and much more! Become a Pop The Knot vendor today.
