Watch Band of Horses Play a Wedding

Posted By on Wed, Sep 8, 2010 at 2:25 PM

This is actually a really sweet, lovely story. Once upon a time, Njal and Elin got engaged at a Band of Horses show in Olso. By happenstance, their wedding fell on the same day that Band of Horses were scheduled to play a Norwegian music festival in the couple's town of Tromsø. Njal and Elin wrote the band, telling them their engagement story, leading Ben Bridwell & Co. to surprise the couple at the church with an acoustic performance of "Marry Song" from Cease to Begin. And guess what? Someone was there to film it and upload it to YouTube. Long live love, indie rock and the Internet. (Also, is the groom sending a text message at 3:20?)
