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.

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.
