Taylor Swift Crashes New Jersey Wedding

By Kenneth Barilari

A New Jersey couple got the surprise of a lifetime at their wedding on Saturday.

Taylor Swift surprised newlyweds Max Singer and Kenya Smith by showing up to their wedding and serenading them with an acoustic version of her hit song “Blank Space.”

Max’s sister Ali had contacted Swift months back asking the singer if she would attend the wedding. The idea came after the passing of her and Max’s mother. Max and Kenya held a private ceremony in his mother’s hospital room so she could be present for his wedding. “Blank Space” was the soundtrack to their mother-son dance.

The wedding took place at Brant Beach Yacht Club in Ship Bottom, New Jersey.

Guests have taken to Twitter and Facebook to post videos of the superstar performing at the reception.

Swift took time to pose for photographs with the bride and groom, as well as their families.

The singer even posted some of the photos on her official Instagram page.

Swift gave the couple a personalized card with her lyrics “So it’s gonna be forever,” written in watercolors and the wedding date underneath. Surrounding the lyrics is a floral circle, with the names of the bride and groom on each side.

The wedding’s DJ Mike Klebacher took to Facebook to share his feelings about the singer’s attendance. “I’m so happy for our wedding couple, and am enamored for Taylor doing this for such a great reason. Wow!” he said.

Brant Beach Yacht Club shared on Facebook, “We always knew BBYC weddings were special.” They then congratulated the newlyweds.

Thanks to Taylor, this couple’s special day became even more magical. It’s a love story, and Taylor Swift just said yes.


Bridal Beauty Fun at José Eber Salon

#HipNJ’s hippest brides flocked to Millburn’s José Eber Salon for their bridal beauty event, hosted by New Jersey’s event planner to the stars, Danielle Rothweiler of Rothweiler Event Design.

The salon’s chic industrial look, outfitted with stark white decor and glamourous chandeliers, made the perfect backdrop for the betrothed to meet with some of the Garden State’s premiere wedding vendors.

Guests enjoyed appetizer samples from Jersey City’s Maritime Parc, which included delicious cuts of various meats and an array of cheeses. Complimenting that spread were succulent dessert samples by Dumont’s My Daughter’s Cakes, who provided samples of their cookies, cakes and pies. José Eber Salon also offered sinfully sweet, branded cake pops, compliments of Santatori.
