Army son surprises mom with an unexpected reunion on her wedding day


Wedding day surprises don't come any bigger than this.

Colice Parris was in the middle of her marriage ceremony when the minister asked the customary question, "Who gives this woman to be married to this man?" The answer came back, "I do." But the voice was not who Colice expected. Instead, the response came from her Army son.

23-year-old son Raphael Holder had not seen his mom in more than three years, as he's based in New York while Colice lives in Guyana.

Raphael had planned the surprise weeks in advance. He even spoke to his mom on the night before the wedding, pretending to be devastated that he couldn't be there. But in the end, he made her special day.
