Bride Brittany Adkins didn’t know what was coming her way when she received an incredibly emotional surprise right in the middle of her wedding ceremony.
The bride had a childhood dream – she wanted her granddad, Rev. Ronald Adkins, to officiate her wedding but that became impossible because he passed on. The groom wanted to surprise her heartthrob and he came up with a plan with the bride’s brother and sister to give Brittanny her childhood marriage dream.
During the wedding ceremony, the preacher asked everyone to bow their heads in prayer ― that’s when grandpa Ronald’s voice began playing over the loud speaker. He prayed over them and pronounced them husband and wife before telling the groom he could kiss the bride.
“I immediately recognized his voice and started sobbing,” the bride told HuffPost. “Different emotions were racing through my head while trying to soak in hearing my grandpa’s voice. I was weak to my knees, chilled, but despite all the tears, I was smiling inside.”
The audio recording was actually from Brittany’s sister’s wedding in 2015, which their grandpa had officiated.
