Instead of delivering a traditional wedding toast when their sister's reception rolled around, her 'maids performed a medley of famous Disney songs, including The Lion King's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," Beauty and the Beast's "Be Our Guest," Mulan's "I'll Make a Man Out of You," and "A Whole New World" from Aladdin. Not even a fairy godmother could serve up a speech this good!
When Susie Kasteel wed her Prince Charming in Vancouver this past July, toast duties fell upon her two sisters, bridesmaids Sarah and Naomi Carter. So what are two Disney fanatics to do? Sing an entire musical's worth of Disney songs, with lyrics altered to perfectly fit the wedded couple's love story, of course!
"We sing all the time," Sarah explained to The Huffington Post. "Growing up, music was a big part of our household. As young girls we would sing along to all the Disney classics ― we know all the words! Naomi and I were also both very into musical theater." Oh, and the trio of sisters also regularly performs as the Disney princesses at children's birthday parties with their company, Crowned Princess Entertainment. Casual...
So it should come as know surprise that these 'maids totally killed it on the big day. And the bride, of course couldn't help but agree. "Susie was smiling ear-to-ear during the performance, and we could tell she wanted to come up and join in," said the bride's sis. "You can hear her chiming in with background vocals during 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight.'"
But a toast this good was bit a harder to pull off than just waving a magic wand. With Naomi residing overseas, the pair of 'maids had to plan most of the toast over email, before practicing in the car — on the day of!
"It was tough to keep it a secret from our sister, so our practice time and locations were limited," shared Naomi. "We used the hour between driving from the ceremony and the reception location to practice. We were glad that the performance itself was the best one we had done!"
