A groom named Steven Marec got emotional on his wedding day when his best friend who was not expected to come showed up! The groom was all ready to tie the knot with Lauren Marec.
Steven’s best friend White is a member of the U.S. Army and he learned he would be getting deployed overseas during the wedding of his friend, ABC News reported.
Steven told ABC News that he planned the wedding party without an official best man on hand as he didn’t want to replace White. Luckily, White’s deployment got delayed two days before the wedding and he decided to surprise Steven.
The emotional moment was captured by newlywed’s photographers. In the heartwarming video, Steven and Lauren can be seen strolling down a sidewalk together holding hands and White appears from the bushes in his army combat uniform.
“Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Marec!” he happily said, causing Steven and Lauren to stop in their tracks — their jaws wide open in surprise.
“Bro!” Steven yells, and his expressions show how excited he is to see his best friend.
White greets bride with a hug and shares a long embrace beside the rest of Steven’s thrilled groomsmen. Steven posted the video on his Facebook account and wrote, “My best friend AJ surprised me at my wedding. He was NOT suppose to be there and I’m so happy that he was!”
“I’m just glad to have my best friend at my wedding,” he added in a separate post.
The video has received a great response and social media users praised the friendship of two.
One commented: ‘’So touching & beautiful.’’
Another added: ‘’From one Military Family to another congratulations on your Beautiful Day and Thank your Bestfriend for his Service.’’
‘’That is so awesome that he was there for your big day,’’ said another user.
