Nobody appreciates a love story quite like Taylor Swift. The singer-songwriter had quite the cameo-filled weekend popping up on SNL, making a pre-taped appearance during Conan O’Brien’s MTV Awards opening sketch, and perhaps most surprisingly, dropping in on one lucky fan’s bridal shower. Gena Gabrielle, future bride-to-be, met Swift at a 2007 meet-and-greet and was completely shocked when the “Speak Now” singer crashed her party.
“I had no idea it was going to happen,” Gabrielle told Today. “[Taylor] said she planned it with her management and her mom. She said it was all worth it because my face was priceless.”
As if the country star’s surprise appearance wasn’t enough, Swift also presented Gabrielle with a celebratory gift that was both practical and thoughtful: a KitchenAid mixer accompanied by an apparent hand-written recipe.
Bust most importantly, Swift presented the future newlywed with a priceless gift: a memory she can cherish forever. “I will never forget she did this for me,” Gabrielle told Today. “She is truly an incredible, special person.”
