Two bored miscreants were hanging around one evening and decided to reenact their favorite Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughn vehicle by crashing the wedding of an unsuspecting Pennsylvania couple. After employing the talented stalkers on the internet to find the wedding crashers, the two couples have apparently come to some sort of understanding about the conflict. If only they could talk to Congress–world peace could be but an internet witch hunt away.
Krista Lamlin and Andrew Reilly got married back in January, and while reviewing the photos from their wedding last week found multiple photos of two guests who were not on the invite list. This is, of course, an amateur move on the part of the wedding crashers, but hey, we all make mistakes. Apparently the two hadn’t been raucous–they simply danced all night and drank the free alcohol afforded to the wedding guests. They were asked to leave and went without incident, probably thinking the entire affair was a funny story and not as bad as say, wearing a white dress if you’re not the bride.
The newlyweds posted their wedding photos on their local ABC affiliate’s Facebook page, and the photos got massive attention, as wedding-related social media is wont to do. So much attention, in fact, that the crashers got wind of the whole thing, and reached out to the newlyweds to apologize. Apparently the two had been guests at the hotel and were bored, so they just wandered on in to the wedding. They claimed to have never done anything like that before (sure), and apologized profusely. Lamlin says she accepted their apology and can move on, because gosh, that woman has some serious capacity to forgive.
Wedding crashing sucks because those things are expensive as all get out, but I suppose it could have been much worse. They could have made a scene, gotten into a fight, or tried to sleep with the bridal party. Or they could have crashed a funeral.
