Most brides serve vanilla (or chocolate) cake at their wedding — but only very creative ones serve (or should we say sing) "Vanilla" on their big day! Such was the case for bride Ina O'Brien, who rapped Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" as her toast to her new husband in an epic performance that would make the rapper proud.
Irish natives Ina O'Brien and Aiden Dwyer tied the knot in Mayo County, Ireland last month and celebrated with a wedding reception at the Radisson Blu Hotel, according to TV 3. But this just wasn't just any wedding reception — thanks to the bride. Luckily for us, a wedding guest caught the whole rap on tape, which began with several of the groomsmen whipping out sunglasses and standing behind her in solidarity. "Alright stop, grab your drinks and listen..." she spat to the beat while the groom and the wedding guests laughed and looked on.
"Love has grabbed ahold of us tightly, we're lovey dovey daily and nightly. Will it ever stop? Oh hell no! Look us two, we're ready to grow," she rapped. "Four years ago I received a call — attraction happened back in '09, we used to be friends and went to dine. Didn't last long as we were young, now we're back together it's now or forever," O'Brien crooned. To the crowds amazement — and most likely to show how much she practiced her lines and was ready for the big stage (errr, reception) — she finished the entire song.
"He got me ice, ice baby. Now I'm his wifey, baby!" she sang to the chorus, flashing her engagement ring bling. "Happy, that's what we are together." "Us two are living proof, there's nothing that love can't do. Husband and wife, are future is set." "Let's cheers to our new life, a happy ever after and a magical life," she ended the toast to the crowd cheering. Dwyer, clearly incredulous, embraced his new wife and gave her a big smooch on the lips. Vanilla Ice would be proud.
While you may think this bride totally took wedding performances to a new level, this isn't the first time we've seen a totally awesome wedding toast that incorporated "Ice Ice Baby." Last year, maid of honor Rachel Winterbottom set the bar high with her rendition of the song that she created for her newly-married big sister. Needless to say, toasts that incorporate singing, dancing, and/or rapping get us every time. See below for the full video of the new bride's performance. Bravo!
