Watch this engaged couple stun their party guests with a surprise announcement

A couple from Whitby, Ontario, Canada, surprised their family and friends with an unannounced wedding.

Julia Polley and her partner, Kevin, invited their guests to an engagement party but had something else in mind. Grabbing the mic to thank everyone for coming, they left their audience open-mouthed when they revealed they were getting married then and there.

“When we got engaged, we knew we didn’t want to do something that was traditional,” says Julia. “I quietly pitched the idea to Kevin, and he said it sounded like fun.”

The couple had already told their parents of the plan so as not to cause offense, but the rest of the crowd was caught completely off guard.

“It was an incredible day,” says Julia. “I hoped it would be so much fun, and it was way more fun than I could have imagined.”
