Our favorite type of wedding crashers are those of the celebrity set. On second thought, celebrity wedding crashers are the only kind of uninvited guests we'd willing offer a slice of wedding cake to. The latest celeb to surprise a pair of newlyweds? Tim McGraw, who recently crashed a Philadelphia wedding, where he made the entire wedding party — and us, of course! — tear up with a super sweet performance.
The country crooner is far from the first celebrity to play wedding crasher. By now, Taylor Swift is a fully-fledged expert at sneaking into a strangers' nuptials. Back in 2014, Swift crashed a fan's bridal shower and even brought a KitchenAid mixer for the bride-to-be! And earlier this summer, she performed as a surprise wedding singer at another unsuspecting fan's wedding. Meanwhile, last September, Robert Pattinson showed up at a wedding celebration within the hotel he was staying in. Of course, the bridal party was more than happy to invite the Twilight hunk into the festivities! Even President Obama got in on the wedding crashing fun, after showing up at a golf course where "I do's" were being said. But Tim McGraw's go at wedding crashing is the one that's got us all misty-eyed.
At Lisa White and Paul Getz's Philadelphia wedding on Saturday, the bride's father David White pulled out all the stops when it came to the father/daughter dance, recruiting the one and only Tim McGraw to help make the moment truly magical.
As a surprise to the newlyweds and all of the wedding guests, the Grammy-winning singer stopped by the reception to perform his song "My Little Girl" for the bride's dance with her dear old dad. "Mr. White was the only person who knew it was happening," the groom's sister later explained to CBS Philly. "Tim was there for two hours backstage beforehand and that's when him and Mr. White planned how the surprise would go down."
And what went down was this: As father and daughter took to the dance floor and the guitarist began strumming the first few chords of the song, McGraw emerged from behind the stage. Cue the surprise cheers from the crowd and the bride's mini freak-out, all captured on a guest's video posted to Facebook. Lisa and her father completed their tear-jerking spin around the dance floor, and then if that wasn't enough to make you jealous of this bride's A-list wedding singer, McGraw stuck around to get the party really going, performing his hit "Live Like You Were Dying."
BRB... Crying over not scoring an invite to this reception.
