A Disney-Loving Bride Was Surprised by the Real Voice of Ariel

Jodi Benson from 'The Little Mermaid' performed at the reception!

As with many women of her generation, Krysten Green is a huge fan of The Little Mermaid. While giving a Disney-themed toast at her wedding reception, the father of the bride, who donned white Mickey Mouse gloves – asked his daughter what her favorite Disney movie is. She quickly answers, “The Little Mermaid,” without a clue of what is going to happen next. Her dad briefly ducks out of the ballroom and brings back a legend: Jodi Benson, who was the voice of Ariel. 

Due to the fact that she almost exclusively works as a voice actress onscreen, most fans understandably wouldn’t necessarily recognize Jodi in person. However, it’s clear that the bride is not an average fan – her jaw instantly drops and her eyes widen as soon as she sees her idol. After a brief introduction, the singer performs “Part of Your World” from the classic film, as clips from the movie are shown on a screen. As a charming touch, the video frequently cuts to Krysten mouthing the words along to the performance. The song concluded with the screen displaying a childhood photo of the bride with her parents. Naturally, she was wearing a The Little Mermaid shirt.
