Yesterday was Renee & Sam's SURPRISE wedding! A surprise, you wonder? Yes. A spectacular, elaborate, playful, thoroughly planned, well executed surprise. Little did guests know, they were not arriving to Renee & Sam's "engagement party." No way.
At 2:15, just after the party was set to begin, Renee & Sam were nowhere to be seen. They were upstairs in hiding, adorned with stunning wedding garb and ready to be married, while friend Brance announced to guests what was about to transpire....
*Cue gasps and shrills of excitement*
*Cue the wedding party stepping down the opulent spiral staircase*
