High School Song Team Surprise Coach At Her Wedding | Happily TV

A stunned bride welled up with joy when a the high school dance team that she coaches followed up on a promise and crashed her wedding. Catey Thomson, a former cheerleader with the Los Angles Lakers basketball team, had no idea that 14 teenagers from Ayala Song Team were set to head into her wedding, in Los Angeles, California. 27-year-old Catey has been coaching the team for six years, and around the time she got engaged, in December 2022, the girls started joking that they would make it to her wedding as guest performers. Ahead of the big day Catey would inform the girls that there was not enough room in her headcount – but her mom, Caren, who was helping organize the wedding, had other ideas. Secretly, she reached out to Catey's wedding planner and the moms of her team, asking if there was any way they could make a surprise performance work. The girls were advised to show up at the venue on January 27 at 8pm sharp, wearing uniforms and carrying their usual pom-poms. As Catey stood amongst a crowd of guests, the DJ made an announcement to look to the upper level, where Catey saw a stream of girls running down the ramp to the bottom level, waiving their pom-poms and holding a championship banner from a recent competition. They then jumped on their coach and gave her a huge hug, with Catey welling up at the emotion of the surprise. Later in the evening, Catey took the floor and performed a dance with the team that they perform at football games.
