Post Malone ‘officiates’ local fans’ wedding after Seattle concert
Randee Metayer is used to his fiancée, Jana Schuster, coming up with crazy ideas, so when Schuster proposed that they try to have a wedding ceremony at the November 5 Post Malone Show at Climate Pledge Arena, she just went with it.
It didn’t work out exactly as the people of Seattle had expected, but in the end, Schuster and Metayer ended up on stage with Post Malone, who hosted an impromptu unofficial ceremony that went viral. on TikTok and was reported by TMZ thanks to influencer Heidi Lavon, a friend of the couple. Malone can be heard asking each woman if she takes the other to be her “legally married partner” before granting her permission to kiss to the cheers of the crowd.
“We could have been in a broom closet and it would have been just as epic,” Schuster, 39, said. “No videos, no photos, just a cool experience. But it was nerve-wracking because there were so many people around. We’ll be in wheelchairs when we’re 90 and still talking about it: ‘Hey , grandkids, remember that guy from Post Malone?”
The idea of taking the stage with Post Malone began when the pair were talking with Seattle Kraken President and CEO Tod Leiweke, with whom Schuster, vice president of Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company, bonded friendship on a flight a few years ago. While watching a Kraken game together, Leiweke joked that the couple, who were already planning an unofficial wedding ceremony in March 2023 in Mexico, would have to perform the civil ceremony to legally marry at Climate Pledge Arena.
While plans to make a civil ceremony at the Post Malone parlor fell through when they were unable to secure a judge, Schuster remained convinced they would show an appearance with Post Malone and even told Metayer, a chief project at Midmountain Contractors in Bellevue, to wear whatever she wanted to be seen on stage wearing.
Schuster spent two hours making a sign asking “Be our judge and marry us!” and snuck him into the pit, where she said security was on the lookout for signs. After escaping the watchful eye of security, Schuster finally got his chance at the end of the show.
“The show is ending and he stayed for a few minutes signing autographs,” Schuster said. “He ended up signing the Randee jersey (Cowboys), as planned. Then I just handed him the sign, and as he took a puff of his cigarette, he opened it and said, ‘Come on. Send these two girls. “
While Schuster said she felt perfectly comfortable on stage, Metayer was busy spending time next to her favorite artist.
“I was completely blown away,” said Metayer, 36. “He was so patient with me while my brain was exploding. He was just like, ‘Take your time,’ pulling on a cigarette. He was so cool.
The couple has not finished showing up. Schuster said one of his dreams was to play a game of beer pong with Post Malone. It’s something that seems oddly close at hand these days, so Schuster uses the couple’s viral moment to challenge him to a match at their wedding in Mexico.
“Would it be cool if we could take him to Mexico?” Schuster said, who added that the couple had yet to plan their official civil ceremony, but that would be before their March 3 celebration in Mexico. “[Lavon] put together the video and asks everyone to comment and bring Post Malone to Mexico. It is a new demonstration.
