A bride and groom decked out in camouflage got a surprise wedding gift as "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson made an appearance while they held their nuptials at a new Field & Stream store in rural Pennsylvania.

“That’s a first for me, and it’s good to be a part of that,” Roberston told WTAE in Pittsburgh. “They look like my kind of folks.”

Mehgan Cook and Charlie Miller shunned a traditional wedding and chose to walk down the aisle to duck calls as they were surrounded by friends, family, and a couple hundred strangers at the new store. The idea to get married at the Field & Stream in Cranberry Township came from Cook’s mom, but the couple was game.

“Ever since I was a little kid, that’s all we did — hunt and fish — so I didn’t want to be in no church in a tuxedo,” Miller told the TV station. “I wanted to feel comfortable and just have fun.”

Store managers convinced Robertson to make the surprise appearance at the wedding. He had been scheduled to appear at the business, prompting the couple to contemplate cancelling the wedding.

WTAE said Cook never thought she would marry after her fiance, Louis Young, was killed in a car crash a week before their 2010 wedding. She met Miller two years later at a memorial for Young.

“We’ve been together ever since,” she said.

Before he left, Robertson had some advice for the newlyweds: “Just love each other and forgive each other,” he said.

"Duck Dynasty" is the most-watched series in A&E history. The show chronicles the lives of the Robertsons, a Louisiana family that struck it rich with their Duck Commander business that manufactures calls for duck hunters.
