WATCH: Lucky Bride Surprised by Ree Drummond on Her Wedding Day
The Pioneer Woman was happy to take a few snaps with the lovebirds.
Food Network star Ree Drummond was hanging out in the Big Easy last week when she stumbled upon a happy sight: a bride and groom on their way to get married.
“I was walking down Bourbon Street in New Orleans last weekend, and I saw the most beautiful couple walk out of a building with the rest of their small, intimate wedding party,” the Pioneer Woman wrote on Instagram. “I quickly scooted around them and hurried down the street a bit so I wouldn’t be in their way...then a few moments later I felt a tap on my shoulder. Will you join us for a photo?’ the couple asked.”
Drummond, who has been married to her husband Ladd for more than 20 years, was more than happy to stop for a photo op with the lovebirds.
“I was surprised and so touched,” the Oklahoma-based tv star wrote alongside the sweet snap. “Congratulations, Matt and Lacy! Here’s to a lifetime of love.”
Vanessa Rivas of Miss Meow Studios, the photographer who took the picture, told Today that it was her assistant who first noticed Drummond.
“’Hey, isn’t that the lady from Food Network?’” Rivas said her assistant asked.
The bride, who is a big fan of Drummond's, reportedly ran after the celebrity chef, who was already halfway down the street. Rivas told Today that the whole encounter lasted only about five minutes, but she knows it’s something the couple will never forget.
