Jake Owen Surprises Couple at Their Wedding Thanks to Groomsman’s Twitter Message
Following a recent concert in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Jake Owen surprised one lucky couple on their wedding day. The country star dropped by newlyweds Alyssa and Brett Lorenz's reception venue after a friend in the wedding party messaged him on social media.
Owen's surprise visit came about thanks to groomsman Parker Rew, who direct messaged Owen on Twitter.
"He's a super great dude," Rew tells KSFY News of Owen. "I was just a little nervous making sure everyone was coordinated and had the timing and had everything like that right."
After Rew put his plan in motion, he learned something that made the moment extra-special: "I actually found out that, a couple [of] nights ago, that their first song ... dance that they were going to do was a Jake Owen song," he shares. "I didn't know that, so it sounded like it meant a little bit more to Alyssa and Brett."
The singer didn't just take a few pictures, either; according to Rew, Owen had a beer with the wedding party and chatted with them for a bit. After the wedding, Rew shared a few photos, and a brief video, from Owen's surprise visit on his Instagram account; readers can see them above.
"It’s tough to put into words how great Brett and Alyssa’s wedding weekend was. Having a surprise appearance by @jakeowenofficial (bad ass) was the icing on the cake for us all," Rew writes. "Congrats to the awesome couple, and thanks for letting me be a part of your special day! And Jake, thank you for being a genuine guy and helping pull off the surprise."
Owen, too, shared Brett Lorenz's tweet about his visit. "Congrats Y'all!" he writes. "I was proud to be there."
