Watertown Couple Celebrates Wedding With Rascal Flatts

While in the state for Country USA last week the country group Rascal Flatts played at a wedding in Watertown. Sara and Brandon McGinnis tied the knot at the Sugar Island Barn on Saturday when Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney crashed the party. The father of the bride, Jeff Spern says a friend of the couple’s contacted the group last October after noticing their tour schedule coincided with the wedding. Arrangements were made and the secret kept until last Thursday when Sara’s maid-of-honor let her boyfriend in on the plan because she needed to provide the band with a back-up cell phone number. Spern says she got choked-up during her maid-of-honor speech once she realized that it was actually going to happen. The group even went so far as to find out where the couple was registered and got them a gift. Rascal Flatts performed the single “Bless the Broken Road” which was the song the couple had already picked anyway to be their first song as a married couple. Spern says that was special. He says Rascal Flatts stuck around to have photos taken, but had to go up to Oshkosh later that night to play at Country USA.
