Sara and Brandon McInnis had a weekend to remember, for more reason than one. Not only did the couple say “I do” but they received a special surprise prior to their first dance.
In a video posted to Facebook, the Wisconsin couple is seen preparing to share their first dance as husband and wife. One of the bridesmaids make a surprise announcement that their dance will be done to a live performance from country supergroup Rascal Flatts.
The McInnis’s wedding took place at Sugar Island Barn in Watertown, Wisconsin, on Saturday. Lucky for the bride and groom, the venue was en route to Rascal Flatts’ concert stop so the guys stopped by on their way.
“We were in the neighborhood so we thought we’d swing over,” Gary LeVox told the couple.
The band then performed their chart-topping hit “Bless the Broken Road.” The song was originally supposed to be played by the deejay, but a family friend surprised the couple by asking the band to play it in person. The only person who knew about the surprise was Sara’s sister who kept the secret for months. Even the venue didn’t know.
“We looked out the window here and we see three more black SUVs and they open the door to talk to them and my bartender was like, ‘That’s Rascal Flatts.’ I’m like, ‘Shut up’,” said Brady Robus, the co-owner of Sugar Island Barn.
The video below captures the shock of the bride and groom as Rascal Flatts enters the venue then treats them to their first dance.
Congratulations, Sara and Brandon!
