The day before the wedding of Elton John and Patti Smith, Patti and Elton were at the beach, fishing.
Patti said she thought she’d seen something beautiful, but when she looked in the water she saw a man.
“I had this little thought, ‘What the hell is that?'”
Patti told the Associated Press.
“It was kind of funny, but I was like, ‘Oh, I wonder what he’s doing?'”
Elton told Patti, “That’s Elton, and he’s with you.”

When Elton and his bride got back to their hotel, they discovered that a woman had been killed by a boat in the middle of the night.
They were worried, but Elton was able to locate a couple of local fishermen and brought them to the scene.
Elon told the couple that the fisherman had gone to the beach and “picked up a woman and he was taking her home.”
Patti took a picture of Elson and Pattid with the man she’d spotted.
The couple’s wedding was the biggest of Eltons life.
Pattie wrote on Facebook: “As a wedding planner, I have seen many of the best moments, and we have had the biggest and best wedding ever!
We are so thankful for Elton’s love and support during this very difficult time, and hope to never have to leave our beautiful home again.
It’s the only way to say goodbye!”
The wedding was so big, Pattie said she’d be “throwing the whole wedding into the sea.”
