She Didn't Think Her Parents Would Make It To Wedding Until Groom Orchestrated Surprise

This video shows you what really counts on your big day! This bride’s reaction to ‘surprise guests’ at her wedding will fill you with warmth, love, and maybe you might shed a few tears. She didn’t think her parents would make it to her wedding until the groom orchestrated the ultimate surprise.

Aline Nas was about to marry the love of her life, Bryan Tickle and this bride wanted her parents there more than anything. But she knew it would be a miracle if they were able to make it to their Florida wedding because her beloved parents live in Brazil.

Even though their passports had been approved, it was unlikely mom and dad would receive their passports in time because of their mail system. Aline says because she grew up in Brazil, she knew it was a long shot.

Yet, her groom wanted to give her the ultimate surprise. Bryan worked out a plan to not only get Aline’s parents to the wedding but also ensured it would be the surprise of a lifetime. Aline’s parents agreed to not telling Aline they were in Florida. And they even managed to hide out at the same hotel Aline was staying at.

On the day of the wedding, Aline’s dad was already dressed for the wedding but Aline called him like she always does. He said he had to pretend he was still at home. So he took off his shirt and messed up his hair to make it look like he was chilling out at home.

Aline was ready, dressed in her wedding dress and walking with her husband-to-be when she caught sight of her parents. She fell to her knees and cried tears of joy at the sight of her parents standing before her. She recalls being in shock and wondering if that moment was truly happening. Her reaction was a mixture of love, surprise, and relief!

But that’s not where this beautiful story ends. Aline learned her mother would be having surgery once she arrived back home in Brazil. With a little help from her groom, Aline made the 18-hour flight to surprise her parents. The unexpected visit was also captured on video! The reaction of surprise, shock, and pure adoration for Aline was painted all over her parent’s faces.

This video is a sweet reminder of the love between parents and children. No matter how far apart, the miles in between, or the events happening in your life, it’s a sweet reminder of the gift of family and being surrounded by those you love. What an incredible testimony of a family’s love.

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” Psalm 127:3-4
