First, we had the father-of-the-bride surprise his daughter with Tim McGraw as her wedding singer….NOW a mother-of-the-bride pulled some strings to have Chris Stapleton surprise her daughter!
Stephanie Braun and Officer Ryan Braun from Cincinnati, Ohio had chosen Chris Stapleton’s song “Tennessee Whiskey” as their first dance song; but they were devastated when they realized Stapleton would be playing in their city the same night of their wedding.
They couldn’t make it to the show because…well…they were getting MARRIED!
So one of Braun’s mother’s friends got to work to put together the perfect wedding gift: Stapleton himself.
After the first dance at their reception, the couple was rushed next door to the backstage area at Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, where Stapleton was playing.
“I was trying to figure out what was going on and I was clueless,” Stephanie told Taste Of Country.
“We walked in and I looked over and I saw this burly tall grisly man and I looked a little closer and I was like ‘Oh my goodness, that’s Chris Stapleton! I almost fainted.”
Stapleton topped off the surprise with a personalized signed guitar as a wedding present for the couple, a few photos with the couple; and then they were rushed back to their reception, but not without the BEST wedding story EVER!
