Kraft, 81, tied the knot with ophthalmologist Dana Blumberg, 47, on Friday night at what guests were told was a ‘Kickoff and a Touchdown Party’.

The couple, who began dating in 2019, hired the lower Manhattan Hall des Lumières and told 250 friends and family members to dress festively, The New York Post reported.

The invitees – among them Jon Bon Jovi, country singer Kenny Chesney, film tycoon Ari Emanuel and Oscar-nominated film producer Brian Grazer – did not know the pair would wed. 

Tom Brady, former Patriots quarterback, turned up without his wife Gisele Bundchen, amid rumors of an impending divorce.

Sources told The Post that guests were shown a 10-minute video of the couple, before they were introduced to the crowd by the voice of NFL commentator Al Michaels as husband and wife.

The pair had coordinated especially with Elton John, after he volunteered in July to sing at their wedding. They gave him three weeks notice, and he found a spare date.

The Rocketman kicked off his hour-long performance with ‘Circle of Life,’ followed by ‘Tiny Dancer,’ ‘Philadelphia Freedom,’ ‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,’ ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight,’ and more, the Post reported.

He also performed ‘Candle in the Wind’, as a duet with Ed Sheeran.

Kraft and Blumberg had a first dance as Sheeran played an acoustic number. 

The bride arrived in an Elie Saab jumpsuit she helped design, and then wore an ivory Naeem Khan wedding dress when the newlyweds were announced.

Rapper Meek Mill performed, and then Grandmaster Flash took to the turntables and DJ’d.

‘They wanted to get in a zone of sharing happiness with one another, and bringing people together,’ a friend of the couple told the paper.

Kraft was previously married to his college sweetheart and philanthropist Myra Kraft.

She died in 2011 from cancer at the age of 68.
