A Wisconsin bride and groom got the ultimate wedding gift when popular country music group Rascal Flatts popped up at their wedding reception over the weekend. The trio performed their emotional hit song, “Bless the Broken Road” for surprised newlyweds Brandon and Sara McInnis’ first dance as husband and wife.
Sara shared with WTMJ-TV that they had planned on the DJ playing the song. Instead, a longtime family friend had quietly contacted the band to ask if they could play the tune for the couple on their way to a country music festival in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Rascal Flatts graciously obliged and the performance plan was kept secret from the love birds until the very last moment.
Gary Levox shared a video about the heartwarming experience via Facebook, stating on the way to the reception, “We’re getting to play their first dance as husband and wife and it’s so special to be a part of that.”
Of course both the bride and groom were absolutely shocked when the trio made their was into the rustic venue. Sara couldn’t contain her excitement and embraced the country stars while welling up with tears of utter joy. “Thank you so much for making our wedding day literally unforgettable,” Sarah tells the camera after dancing to “Bless the Broken Road” with her new husband.
