Web Exclusive: "Duck Dynasty" wedding surprise

Posted: Updated:

(CNN/WTAE) - A Pennsylvania couple -- sharing both their love for each other and their love for the A & E reality show "Duck Dynasty" tied the knot at a Field & Stream store Saturday. But just as the couple finished their vows -- a special and unexpected guest arrived.

It was her dream to walk down the aisle to duck calls surrounded by friends, family, and a couple hundred strangers, 26 year old Mehgan Cook married Charlie Miller, right in the middle of the new Field & Stream store. The bride, in a camo sash -- the groom, in his boots under an arbor of wild animals. The couple wasn't prepared for what would happen after the "I Do's."

Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson surprised his super-fans with a congratulations.

"It was like Christmas morning when you were a little kid.  I was like, 'ohhhh my goodness," says Miller

"That's a first for me and it's good to be apart of that.  They look like my kind of folks," says Robertson. 

Wille was at the store opening to sign autograps.

"I was going to cancel the wedding because we heard Willie was coming!" says Cook. 

It was the bride's mom's idea to have the wedding at the store.

"Ever since I was a little kid, that's all we did, was hunt and fish so, I didn't want to be in no church in a tuxedo. I wanted to feel comfortable and just have fun!" says Miller. 

The folks at Field & Stream played along, and convinced Willie to surprise the couple and their families -- a dream for Mehgan who never thought she'd get married.

October 2009 -- her fiance, Louis Young was killed in a car crash the week before their wedding.  Two years later to the day, Mehgan met Charlie at a memorial for Young.

"We've been together ever since. So my life ended at the accident site and it started there again."

And as the happy couple starts their life together, Willie has some advice:

"Just love each other and forgive each other."
