You read the title right. Several months ago, I got an email from a man named Jordan. He told me that his wifey-to-be (Rachel) was a HUGE supporter of mine. He then went on to personally invite Stevie and I to their August 2016 wedding in Canada. Never in a million years did he think we would even see the email! My first reaction was, “OMG. This is so sweet!” My second thought was, “Why do I have this strong feeling in my heart that I need to be there?” It took us just a few minutes after reading it when we decided to respond back to Jordan basically saying LET’S DO THISSS. Best of all, Rachel will know nothing about it until I surprise her on the wedding day.
 
Fast forward to last Saturday. I’m in Canada. I’M IN CANADA!!!! It was surreal being there for the first time and trying not to give away too much in my Instagram posts (in case Rach would see!) We brought our videographer friend Max to come out and film the entire thing, because we knew it was going to be EPIC.
 
On the day of the wedding, I kept thinking in my head, “What can I say to bless Rachel and make her feel so special when I meet her.” Side note: anytime I plan something in my head, it never goes down the way I imagine so I reminded myself of that and quit thinking about what I would say.
 
As we walked up to their beautiful outdoor wedding location, we quickly spotted Jordan. Was it awkward? NOPE. I gave him the biggest hug – if any of you have met me IRL, it’s what I like to do! 🙂 When we took our seats at their ceremony, I was really able to soak it all in. I looked around at their family and friends and felt so blessed to be a part of their special day. I kept thinking, “Why me?” Two people who I literally knew nothing about – I suddenly felt so close to.
 
It was cool sitting in the back of their ceremony seeing Rachel walk passed me down the aisle with literally NO CLUE I was there. I’m surprised I didn’t blow my cover in this bright red dress. Stevie kept making fun of me and hinting that I was horrible at disguising myself. Something else Stevie made fun of me for? I started tearing up during their vows and all I had to wipe my tears was a leftover Chipotle napkin in my purse. hahah

When I finally got to surprise Rachel, I was so nervous! I kept joking and saying, “What if she literally doesn’t recognize me or what if I’m not what she imagined I would be!!!” I guess that’s the human in me. 🙂 Before I spoil the entire story and how she reacted, I should say there’s a part 2 to this surprise that will be revealed in the video diary. As many of you know, I’ve been teasing a big surprise that will be launching later this fall and I decided to include Rachel as a part of it. This is why you’ll have to stay tuned for the video because I can’t share all the details just yet.
 
Jordan’s email is one of many that I receive from my sweet followers around the world. I truly love you guys and it is my dream to do more SAZPRISES like I did for Rachel. Thank you ALL for your love and support!
