For some women, Brandon Cassata's romantic gesture would not go over well. But for the bride-to-be overwhelmed with the details of planning her big day, it might just be the sweetest thing ever.
Fortunately for Cassata, his wife, Mary-Cathrin McCarthy, says her wedding day was "perfect," even though it came as a complete surprise.
The couple from Fort Worth, Texas, were planning a November wedding.
But with the help of his in-laws, Cassata instead threw McCarthy her dream wedding last Saturday -- seven months early.
After a series of stressful wedding-planning events, Cassata wanted to relieve his bride of any further stress.
"I watched the show Bridezillas, and I was like, 'Uh, no, not for me,'" he tells TODAY. "We wanted to take the stress off of her and actually help her out with that, so in that we did."
Cassata knew he was making a risky move, but was confident his fiancée would be up the sudden change of plans.Read More »from Groom Brandon Cassata shocks fiancée with surprise wedding
