Duck Calls, Garter Belts, and Bouquets

How would you like for a celebrity to crash your wedding or event? It seems like more and more news stories like these are happening... Just last month the grease lightening hottie (I think he is hot for an old guy okay. LOL) John Travolta himself crashed a wedding.

I am thinking that most Americans would rather see Willie Robertson crash or show up at their wedding. Simply for the fact that the ratings for Duck Dynasty are insane and also... come on. They are relatable to the average American and not to mention AMAZING. I think I would rather Uncle Si show up at my wedding though... Just Saying.  This superfan couple was speechless when their hero showed up at their big day.

 

CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, PA (CNN) -- A Pennsylvania couple, sharing both their love for each other and their love for the A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty" tied the knot at a field and stream store Saturday. But just as the couple finished their vows, a special and unexpected guest arrived.

It was her dream to walk down the aisle to duck calls. Surrounded by friends, family, and a couple hundred strangers, 26-year-old Mehgan Cook married Charlie Miller right in the middle of the new field and stream store.

The bride in a camo sash, the groom in his boots under an arbor of wild animals, the couple wasn't prepared for what would happen after the 'I do's'.

Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson surprised his super-fans with congratulations. Mehgan says, "It was like Christmas morning when you were a little kid. I was like, 'Ohhhh my goodness.'"

Charlie says, "That's a first for me and it's good to be a part of that. They look like my kind of folks."

Willie was at the store opening to sign autographs. It was the bride's mom's idea to have the wedding at the store. Charlie says, "Ever since I was a little kid, that's all we did, was hunt and fish so, I didn't want to be in no church in a tuxedo. I wanted to feel comfortable and just have fun!"

The folks at field and stream played along, and convinced Willie to surprise the couple and their families; a dream for Meghan who never thought she'd get married.

In October 2009, her fiancé Louis Young was killed in a car crash the week before their wedding. Two years later to the day, Meghan met Charlie at a memorial for Young. She says, "We've been together ever since. So my life ended at the accident site and it started there again."

And as the happy couple starts their life together, Willie has some advice, "Just love each other and forgive each other."

(11/3/14) : The driver of a sport utility vehicle was airlifted to a Little Rock hospital and three others suffered minor injuries following an accident involving a South Conway County school bus Thursday morning. Johnathan Trafford, director of emergency management for Conway County, says the accident occurred on Highway 124 just east of Springfield. He says the bus was slowing down and had activated its caution light when the driver of the SUV hit the rear of the bus. There were 13 students on the bus at the time of the accident, and Shawn Halbrook, superintendent of the South Conway County School District, says every student was examined on scene by EMTs. Two students, along with the bus driver, were taken by ambulance to St. Vincent Morrilton for treatment of minor injuries. Halbrook says parents were notified as soon as the accident occurred, and that students were cared for on scene by district personnel.  Halbrook says most of the students who were not injured did make it to school Thursday.  The accident is being investigated by Arkansas State Police.
