Taylor Swift is not the kind of girl who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion, but she is the kind of friend to surprise a superfan at her bridal shower!
The "Speak Now" singer did just that Sunday, in Columbus, Ohio, when she was a very welcome party guest at bride-to-be Gena Gabrielle's pre-wedding celebrations!
"I had no idea it was going to happen," Gena told Today. "[Taylor] said she planned it with her management and her mom. She said it was all worth it because my face was priceless."
That it was! The soon-to-be newlywed, who first met Taylor at a 2007 meet and greet, Instagrammed several shots of her unforgettable shower. In one picture, Taylor, looking adorable in a sea foam green dress, poses alongside Gena, her bridesmaids and her fiancé, Bryan. The bride-to-be quoted the country-pop star as saying, "This is my first bridal shower, and Gena's last."
Taylor, fresh from her Saturday Night Live cameo in NYC, didn't arrive empty-handed! She gave her fan-turned-friend "the cutest" KitchenAid stand mixer, even including what appears to be a hand-written recipe to make using her swanky new appliance!
"I will never forget she did this for me," Gena told Today. "She is truly an incredible, special person."
