Everyone knows that a girl’s wedding day is one of the most memorable days of her life. But for one lucky bride, Lisa White, there was a very special surprise planned for her wedding at Vie, Cescaphe Event Group’s North Broad Street venue in Philadelphia.
Over the past few weeks, Jellyroll’s band leader, Kurt Titchenell, has worked with Dave White, the father of the bride, agents, and production people, in planning for this special surprise. According to Kurt, “keeping the secret was the hardest part”.
On Saturday August 27th, Lisa White and Paul Getz were married. After their ceremony, they enjoyed an amazing cocktail hour, then, Jellyroll took the stage and started the reception off with a bang!
After some initial dancing, it was time for the father/daughter dance. As a special request, the bride requested the song “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw. She would be receiving more than she could have anticipated. After Mr. White’s speech, he invited everyone to surround the dance floor and invited his daughter, Lisa, to join him for his father-daughter dance. As the song started, the guests slowly began to cheer, but it was not until her father circled her around to see the stage that she realized this was the real Tim McGraw singing her song.
After a brief moment of shock, the happy bride continued to dance with her father, while the guests cheered. Once the song concluded, Tim embraced the father and bride with a large hug, and then continued to play a 45 minute set of his music for the lucky guests who afterwards continued to dance and party all night with Jellyroll.
After the big day, Mr. White also wrote Jellyroll some wonderful words, “Thank you for all you did to make Lisa and Paul’s day so special. Thanks for a great night of dancing and for keeping the secret. This COULD NEVER have been done without your help. You helped turn a GREAT night into a DREAM night for both Lisa and Paul. Thanks and if ever you are in need of my services or help, you have a friend for life!”
