Robin Roberts made sure her wedding day to Amber Laign was everything she dreamed of - and more! 

The Good Morning America star isn't one to take herself too seriously and recently she both delighted and shocked her new wife during their wedding reception, after planning an epic dance routine to perform to her. 

Robin admitted that she didn't normally participate in dance routines but that she wanted to surprise Amber with something special on their wedding day.

"My family normally participate in line dances but I never do. That's about to change thanks to my GMA family," she said in behind-the-scenes footage, taken ahead of her wedding. 

In the clip, Robin was with her colleagues who work backstage on Good Morning America, and was seen rehearsing the routine in the backstage studios. "Where you mess up, it just means it's a solo," Robin added as they practiced for the big day.

It's safe to say that Amber's face was a picture when she realised what Robin had in store, and sat down on a chair placed on the dance floor to get the best views as her wife and her GMA family performed in front of her eyes.

After the wedding, Robin took a week off GMA to go on her honeymoon, and it looked like pure paradise. The beloved TV anchor and her new wife jetted off to the picturesque island nation of Curaçao, located off the coast of Aruba and Venezuela.
