Max Singer and Kenya Smith’s wedding guests are still glowing from Taylor Swift‘s surprise appearance at their wedding – and now the tears are about to start flowing for everyone who missed the moment in person.

Ali Singer – the groom’s sister who reached out to Swift back in April about how her brother had danced with his mother to “Blank Space” in the hospital before her death – shared on her Facebook page Sunday the exact moment the superstar shocked Singer and his bride.

“For those of you who missed the moment, Max chose ‘Blank Space’ as his first mother-son dance, an oh-so-fitting song for the biggest Taylor Swift fan in this place, or as he likes to call her, ‘Tay,'” Ali said in a speech just before the big moment. “Max, Kenya, we all wish mom was here, and I can confidently say she’s smiling down and telling us right now . . . to get the party started. So in honor of mom, the love that the two of you share, and the love everyone in this room shares, we’re gonna get this life together started the way you started it the first time around with your marriage in that little room.”

She continued, “So, in the words of Sheryl Sandberg, "We want option A, but option A is not available. So let’s just kick the s— out of option B."

And it looks like the newly single singer, too, filled in a blank space of her own, as she took a moment to announce this particular song wasn’t one she would have ever thought would be the theme of a wedding. “But what Max and Kenya want, they get,” she joked.

“I wanna talk about the fact that when I wrote this song, I never in my life imagined I would be performing it at a wedding,” Swift added, laughing as she watched the newlyweds and their family and friends dance and sing along to the acoustic version of her award-winning hit.

And there’s no doubt it was everything the Singers could have asked for – and more.

“Taylor Swift, you are an inspiration and you have the biggest heart in the world,” Ali wrote. “Your selflessness and desire to be a part of something this special is one of a kind… A day to remember forever! Congrats Max Singer and Kenya Smith! #kenyabelieveit.”
