Meeting with President Obama to discuss opioid addiction can be pretty taxing, so Macklemore decided to cut loose afterwards by crashing a wedding with his mom at the Washington, D.C. hotel where they were staying.

As chronicled in Macklemore’s Snapchat story, the rapper’s mother noticed the wedding and was eager to join in on the fun. Soon after, she convinced her son to join her in the festivities, where the two were welcomed with open arms.

In the series of Snapchats, Macklemore dances with the guests and meets the bride and groom, who celebrate their unexpected guest’s arrival by playing “Thrift Shop.”

“I had one of my uncles coming up to me telling me, ‘Oh, Macklemore is here!’” the bride, Fatima Kahn, told local station FOX 5. “I said, ‘Wow!’ And they had his songs playing and everything. So he was pretty nice about it … All of us, like 50 cousins and 50 aunts and uncles, were on the stage taking selfies with him.”

See some glimpses from Macklemore’s Snapchat story below.
