There are plenty of things that can make a wedding special, from gorgeous fall vibes to a little unexpected rain. But for two brides who recently said “I do,” the special something was much bigger: Sam Smith surprised them with a personal performance.
When Bec Baran and Lisa Best’s wedding day rolled around, it was revealed that Best’s niece and best woman, Katie (who is apparently an AMAZING secret-keeper), had arranged for someone to sing for them at their reception. And while we’re sure that the women would have been touched by any thoughtful tribute, Katie had something pretty epic in store.
“So, Lisa and Bec, it is time for the surprise of your married lives. With a little bit of help from Lisa’s best woman, we have been keeping a big secret from you,” the DJ announced, as seen in a clip from the occasion in the “Stay With Me” singer’s BBC special. The newlyweds were visibly shocked when the music spinner added, “Please welcome Sam Smith!”
After performing his heartwarming tune “Latch,” he then congratulated the brides, saying, “I saw the ceremony in London and it moves my heart so much to see you guys do this today. I truly hope you have a wonderful, wonderful life together. Thank you for having me here.”
Best was blown away: “When he walked through the door, I just thought, ‘Wow, that is actually Sam Smith!’ This does not happen to us. All of my friends and Bec’s friends and family were really shocked. It was just another level.”
“Just being a part of someone’s day like that means the world to me,” Smith said of the special moment, adding, “They’re so in love. It’s just incredible. They’re so in love and it’s so beautiful.”
