Steve Martin's Wedding Was A Surprise To His Guests


Weddings are happy occasions. Surrounded by friends and family, two people bond over their love---what's not to like? Still, there's always a danger that an in-laws drone on and on or best man bombs his speech in spectacular fashion. The reality is that weddings are high-tension events that can take a strange turn at any time. Of course, if you tell your guests there will be a wedding.

What happens when a wedding takes place, but none of the guests are aware of it? It may sound like the beginning of a suspense novel or horror movie, but it's actually the real story of the funny Steve Martin's summer 2007 wedding.

A Surprise Wedding

Obviously, everyone has heard of surprise birthday parties, but surprise weddings? Record-holder Steve Martin hosting Saturday Night Live would be enough to throw off their wedding, when only he and his would-be wife, author and former New Yorker magazine employee Anne Stringfield, knew it was going to happen. .

The couple first went through each other's lives while working at The New Yorker, and Martin wrote comic works for the prestigious publication. The guest star, who was one of the celebrity A-listers, thought they were attending a run-of-the-mill party at Martin's Los Angeles home.

A staggering, star-studded guest list

Despite not telling any of his guests that a spontaneous summer outing would turn into a wedding, Martin and his would-be bride were well-liked for their surprise wedding. Roughly 75 guests including Tom Hanks, Eugene Levy, Carl Reiner, Diane Keaton and magician Ricky J were in for a shock when Martin and his fiancé revealed the secret to the entire wedding.

I pronounce you man and wife now

After a shock of surprise wedding revelations, former Nebraska senator and 1992 Democratic presidential candidate Bob Kere presided over the ceremony. It is unclear whether the officer even knew he would pronounce Martin and Stringfield man and wife that evening. The best man was Saturday Night Live legend, Lorne Michaels.
