Bride gets invited to her own surprise wedding
By Patricia Uyeh
Don’t we just love pleasant surprises? A woman identified as Mercedes Ortiz was given the shock of her life. She turned up for a church for a wedding she was invited to, only to realize she was the bride. In fact, the stunned bride only found out she would be the star attraction at the wedding when the doors of the church were opened.
Mercedes was completely dazed after she was told that she had, in fact, arrived at her own wedding. She had been told she was going to a friend’s ceremony. She broke down into tears as she realized it was her own wedding. She tried to compose herself, as her friends managed to put a veil on her head but she still became teary-eyed when she spotted old friends.
It took her a number of minutes to make her way down the aisle with her father as she stopped to greet guests. But she eventually gets to the altar where she gave her groom, Gustavo, a kiss.
Later that night, while the couple danced, she told him: “I can’t believe you did this, you’re crazy.” The childhood sweethearts have been together for 30 years before Gustavo made Mercedes an honest woman, according to Argentinian site tn.com .
He is said to have come up with the idea five years ago and spoke to a Priest at the Sacred Heart of Barracas Church ,who agreed to the plan. Her husband, Gustavo, managed to arrange the ceremony at the church in Sarandi, Buenos Aires, Argentina, without his wife knowledge. Her incredible reaction was caught on camera as dozens of her friends helped surprise her.
