Twitter user gets wedding help thanks to Conan O'Brien

What has Conan been up to since his sudden unemployment?

Conan O'Brien may seem like an unlikely fairy godmother – but he has made one Michigan woman's dreams come true.

Two weeks ago, the late-night comedian decided to follow a stranger on Twitter. That person is 19-year-old Sarah Killen from Fowlerville. "I've decided to follow someone at random," O'Brien tweeted. "She likes peanut butter and gummy dinosaurs." Killen hasn't been the same since. "He's changed my life," she tells PopEater.

Most importantly, she can now have her fantasy wedding, thanks to all the attention O'Brien has drummed up for her. "It has really helped," Killen says. "I'm getting married on September 25, and we didn't know if we would be able to afford it. Now I'm getting custom made shoes and a dress from Kelima in New York … We're getting a limo, Classic Creations is giving us wedding bands and there's a vineyard in California sending us wine. We've got it all covered now."

Killen says O'Brien is invited to her wedding. "My fiancé wants Conan to be his best man," she says. "That would be really cool. And hey, if he wants us to come on his show, we'd get married on there. That would be fantastic."

Well, of course she didn't know if she could afford a wedding - she's 19! Normal 19 year olds don't have enough money to go to the movies, let alone plan a wedding. But good luck, Sarah!
