It’s a love story. Baby, just say yes. This bride took her idol Taylor Swift’s words to heart when she got engaged to her lover. Fast forward to their wedding day, superfan Erin Seeherman decided to honour the famous musican with a Lover– themed wedding.
Seeherman’s wildest dreams came true when Swift herself reached out to congratulate them.
Seeherman has been a Swiftie for years. In 2016, she met her future husband Moshe Berman, and their love story involved Swift from the jump. Seeherman was in the process of replicating one of Swift’s tour costumes for a Halloween costume at the time and Berman quickly came on board to assist.
Over the course of their relationship, they bonded over Seeherman’s love for Taylor Swift. So much so that Berman proposed to Seeherman at a Taylor Swift concert in 2018.
To keep the theme going, the couple knew they had to involve Swift’s music in their wedding festivities. They settled on creating a wedding theme based on Swift’s latest studio album, Lover.
Various homages to Swift decorated the wedding venue, from the Lover album art colour scheme to place cards that featured origami paper rings with paper butterflies attached.
Swift’s music played throughout the day. Seeherman walked down the aisle to Swift’s “Call It What You Want”, the very same song that played when Berman proposed to Seeherman. Their first dance was appropriately set to Swift’s ‘Lover’.
I’ve loved him three summers now and got to marry him at our “Lover”-themed wedding. This moment made fastening 2,542 flowers to that flower wall worth it. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #Lover #LoverWeddingParTAY

I’m sorry, but the old Erin can’t come to the Twitter right now. Why? Oh, ‘cause she’s dead. @taylorswift13, I can’t thank you enough. I have loved and supported you for years and never in my wildest dreams (see what I did there?) did I think you would ever know. ❤️ https://t.co/IkonF4bO42

Seeherman couldn’t believe her eyes when her heroine responded to her.
“I was really shocked,” she told Billboard. “I never expected her to notice the efforts we had gone to. All the effort we put into the wedding we would have done regardless of whether we thought she might notice because we – my husband now too identifies as a huge Taylor Swift fan – are such huge fans so we were happy and excited to do this, but never really had that expectation that anything would come of it or that we would get noticed.”
