Many people meticulously plan weddings down to every detail - which usually means wedding crashers are far from welcome. After all, who would want uninvited guests taking up a precious seat at the venue or eating the expensive catered food? But, like with all things in life, there is an exception to this rule: celebrity wedding crashers. From Keanu Reeves to Serena Williams, these stars were welcomed with open arms by the bride and groom on their big day. In fact, they pretty much stole the show!
John Travolta Ran Into This Wedding Party and Joined in on the Fun
John Travolta has more movies underneath his belt than most actors and actresses in Hollywood. Off the screen, he has another passion: flying planes. Why are we mentioning this in an article about wedding crashers? Well, because when Travolta was on his way to get his pilot license in Georgia, he ran into a couple who was getting married. He decided not only to join their photography session but also to come back the next day to attend the ceremony.
Lucky for him, he only had to crash the wedding photo and then landed an official invitation to the wedding. Lucky for the bride and groom, he actually showed up!
Late Night Star Conan O'Brian Makes a Special Appearance
Bridesmaids' jobs at weddings are to ensure that the bride is taken care of and all her needs are met. This particular bridesmaid decided to go well above the call of duty. After learning that late-night star Conan O'Brian was staying at the same hotel where the wedding was being hosted, they reached out to see if he wanted to attend. So in the middle of the celebrations, the television icon showed up and surprised the bride and groom!
The star went around and introduced himself (not that he needed any introduction) and talked with various guests. We're guessing the bridesmaid who made it all happen won Wedding VIP afterward.
Keanu Reeves Is the Ultimate Wedding Guest
Keanu Reeves is an insanely popular actor who has been on center stage in massive franchises such as The Matrix trilogy and the John Wick series. But he has never let his immense fame go to his head. This actor accidentally ran into this couple's wedding, and the bride and groom quickly asked the actor to join them for a photograph. Keanu seems stoked to have made an appearance.
The bride and groom also seem immensely pleased to have had the fortunate experience of having the famous robot killing, gun-slinging, possibly immortal Keanu Reeves crash their wedding celebrations.
Jon Bon Jovi Walked Her Down the Aisle
This bride had one wish: she wanted Jon Bon Jovi at her wedding. She even set up a page on the internet requesting his presence. And in an exciting turn of events, the bride got her wishes fulfilled, and the famous singer ended up coming to her wedding. Bon Jovi even walked her down the aisle! To be honest, we aren't a hundred percent sure she wouldn't have rather married Bon Jovi.
Just look at how excited she is to be with him in that picture! Fortunately for the husband, she stayed strong and didn't run away with Bon Jovi.
Steven Tyler Crashed - And Then Sang Their First Dance Song
Steven Tyler is famous for being the lead singer of a little-known band, Aerosmith. You might have heard of their bigger hits, such as "Dream On" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." Okay, we're being sarcastic - everyone knows who Aerosmith is. And the couple photographed below is huge fans. So nothing made them happier than running into the lead singer on their wedding night, especially once he joined the festivities.
Not only did the lead singer join in on the wedding celebration, but he even graced his big fans by live performing the song for their first dance.
Snoop Dogg Was This Couple's Favorite Rapper
There are some actors, actresses, singers, and other famous people that we would all want to crash our wedding. Maybe because they are famous partiers or because they're just iconic. Luckily for this merry couple, Snoop Dogg falls into both those categories, and he crashed their Hindu wedding ceremony back in 2014. The mother of the groom was even able to ensure that the moment got captured on camera.
Seriously - she made the photographer ask Snoop Dogg for a photo. But considering he's the bride and groom's favorite rapper, we can't blame her for being pushy!
Adam Levine Turns Into a Professional Wedding Crashers
Often, these celebrity wedding crashers are nothing more than happy accidents. However, that is not always the case. Maroon 5, one of the most famous American pop-rock bands, decided to turn the idea of wedding crashers into a music video. They then went on a tour where they performed at various weddings and surprised the bride and groom with a private concert for their wedding guests. They later used the images from these events to create their music video.
Not only did these wedding parties get a surprise appearance from several big-name celebrities, but they also got to hear them play live for them. Why weren't we invited?
Katy Perry Happened to Be Staying at the Hotel so She Crashed the Party
Having unexpected guest appearances at your wedding might not be the best thing in the world. However, certain exceptions must be made for royalty, long-lost forgotten family members, and Katy Perry. This couple decided to have their wedding celebrations and ceremony in a hotel, and little did they know that it was also the same hotel that the singer was staying at while out on tour. So, naturally, she decided to stop by.
This photograph of Katy Perry smiling alongside the newlyweds while they were still decked out in their gown and tuxedo has got to be this couple's most prized wedding photograph.
"Brad Pitt Is in the Bar"
This merry couple was enjoying their wedding celebrations when the husband discovered that a top-tier actor, who many consider one of the hottest actors ever, was enjoying a drink at their hotel's bar. The husband said to his now-wife, "Brad Pitt is in the bar." Naturally, they asked if getting a picture with the famous Brad Pitt for their wedding photo album was possible. He said yes, and the couple's fortunate discovery is now forever cemented in history with this photograph.
But we have to wonder if the husband regretted the whole ordeal. Based on the photograph, he appears to be going through some existential crisis at this moment.
Adam Sandler Makes a Guest Appearance
Adam Sandler is one of the funniest actors of all time. And while filming his 2019 comedy, "Murder Mystery," he accidentally crashed a wedding. But when the wedding couple noticed, they welcomed him with open arms. He even posed for a photo with the couple while he was decked out in his most formal flip-flops and basketball T-shirt. It really doesn't get more Adam Sandler than this outfit.
If Adam Sandler crashed our wedding wearing a suit and tie, we'd be really disappointed. An Oversize tee, gym shorts, and flip-flops are the only Adam Sandler uniform we'd accept.
Robert Pattinson Joins the Bridesmaids
While the times are certainly changing, some traditions have remained locked in by gender, such as Groomsmen and Bridesmaid Parties. But sometimes exceptions are made for a best friend or a close family member of the opposite gender. It turns out that there are further exceptions made for famous Twilight stars such as Robert Pattinson, the actor who played Edward Cullen in the infamous four-part film series.
Pattinson was grabbing a drink at a hotel when these Bridesmaids included him in their celebrations. They were even able to catch the actor in rare form with his impressive facial hair.
That Time Bradley Cooper Was a Real-Life Wedding Crasher
Bradley Cooper is an actor famous for his roles in comedies such as the Hangover series and, funnily enough, a wedding comedy called Wedding Crashers. The actor played the part of the antagonist in this 2005 romance/comedy, but in real life, he turned out to be a much more welcome addition to this couple's special day. The couple seems happy to have him crashing their wedding at the actor's alma mater, Georgetown University.
Who knew that Bradley's acting career would serve as a minor prophecy for the type of situations he might fall into? We just hope he wasn't included in the bachelor party.
Lady Gaga Gives a Free Show
This wedding couple spotted one of the pop queens during their celebrations, and Lady Gaga was happy to join in on the festivities. After giving the couple a free show in honor of their wedding, the Hollywood icon even returned to treat the guests and the couple to a round of drinks. If Lady Gaga always gives out free drinks, she can consider herself permanently invited to all our celebrations.
It is one thing for unexpected celebrity guests to be willing to take a photo with the happy couple, but it is god-tier for them also to do a free show.
Tom Hanks Drops Some Marriage Advice
Funny how you seem to run into the most random of people in the oddest of locations. Or, at least, that would appear to be the case here. Tom Hanks, famous for too many films to count, was walking on Santa Monica beach when he accidentally kept getting into these brides' photos. Upon realizing who he was, the almost-newlyweds invited him for some additional photographs, and he left them with some advice.
While we do not know what the advice was (that's between him and the brides), we can assume his over three decades of marriage in Hollywood gave him a strong base for dispensing some decent wisdom on marriage.
A Casual Run in With Denzel Washington
This happy couple decided to take their wedding photos in Central Park in New York City. Not only is this a beautiful spot and a world-famous park, but it also appears to be a celebrity hot spot. While Denzel Washington was taking his dog out for a walk, he ended up running into the couple's photography session, and they were able to snap a picture with the famous actor.
Even though Denzel was jogging incognito with his facial mask on, they could still spot him, and we can be sure that the actor was more than happy about the coincidence.
The Entire Cast of 'Orange Is the New Black' Crashed This Wedding
Back in 2018, Orange Is the New Black cast members Danielle Brooks, Lea DeLaria, and Yael Stone decided to attend that year's Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festivities in Sydney, Australia. They also decided they would crash a wedding while enjoying the festivities. Fortunately, the brides were super happy with the three television superstars' unannounced decision to attend their wedding. And here we thought a single celebrity wedding crasher was a lot to handle!
If one celebrity is enough to make headlines, we can not even imagine what three actresses from one of the hottest television shows did to that day's tabloid headlines.
Beachside Wedding Welcomes Tennis Champion Serena Williams
Beachside weddings are all the rage! They have beautiful views and vibes, and apparently, they also come with celebrity wedding crashers. During this couple's special day, tennis superstar Serena Williams and her colleague Carolina Wozniacki took a break from sunbathing in their swimsuits and came by the party to say congratulations. Luckily, the moment that Serena Williams hugged the bride and groom got caught on camera for all to see.
Serena might be wedding crashing and not even know who the bride and groom are, but she certainly seems delighted to be a part of the couple's celebrations.
Double Trouble: Danny DeVito and Dwayne Johnson
A couple's wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, was heating up and causing a lot of commotion and noise. Little did the couple and their guest know that two famous stars, Danny DeVito and Dwayne Johnson, were within hearing range. Upon hearing the raucous celebration, they decided to stop by and join in on what sounded like a wild party. Not only did they party, but they were even willing to put on a comedy show for the guest.
Naturally, the wedding couple and guests were more than happy to accept the two famous actors into their midst. These two actors are probably automatically invited everywhere and anywhere.
Taylor Swift Felt Right at Home at This Wedding Party
Not all wedding crashers are actually 'wedding crashers;' some are invited by guests attending the wedding. Take this wedding as an example: the groom's sister wanted to do something special for her brother and future sister-in-law's wedding, so she brought the famous singer Taylor Swift. Swift was even willing to play "Blank Space," one of Taylor's famous songs, for the couple as that song held special significance for the groom.
Based on this family's photograph of the couple and Taylor, she was a more than welcome addition to the wedding's celebrations. Also, the groom's sister can do no wrong after this gift.
Beyonce and Jay-Z Take Accidentally Crash an Italian Wedding
Those who have traveled anywhere in Europe know the continent is filled with beautiful churches that are often open to the public. And since celebs are just like us, Beyonce and Jay-Z paid a visit to one of these beautiful churches while traveling in Italy. Little did they know that they would be walking into the middle of a wedding ceremony. Everyone was surprised: Beyonce, Jay-Z, the couple, and their wedding guests.
Fortunately for everyone, this event turned out in everyone's favor. The celebrity couple was happy to join in on occasion, and the wedding couple was glad to have them.
Kristen Stewart and Her Girlfriend Crash Fans' Same-Sex Wedding
After completing their wedding ceremony in their backyard, this couple decided to move the party to a pizzeria in Winnipeg, not just any pizzeria, but Pizzeria Gusto. Little did they know that the Pizzeria was already popping with high-class attendees such as Kristen Stewart and her Victoria's Secret girlfriend. The manager at the local food joint decided to join the two parties, and while he caused a celebrity wedding crash, he also caused a grand old time.
Little did the manager know that the newlyweds had little clue as to who Kistren was or that she was a famous actress who starred in the Twilight films.
Ed Sheeran Puts on the Best Wedding Show
This couple was having a hard time getting their wedding together. Fortunately, there was a Sydney-based radio show, Kyle & Jackie O, that was more than happy to help out. Not only did they fully fund the wedding, but they also got the famous redhead, Ed Sheeran, to perform at the couple's wedding. We think that this radio show is in the wrong business. They should make wedding planning their permanent occupation.
One of the world's most famous gingers sang the song "Thinking Out Loud" for the couple and their guests after making his surprise appearance. Ed Sheeran is genuinely the ultimate wedding guest.
Chris Hemsworth Casually Strolled Into This Australian Wedding
The trendy actor, Chris Hemsworth, decided to go surfing in Bryon Bay in his home country of Australia. When he decided to go surfing, he probably was not expecting to be summoned to a photography session with a pair of newlyweds. However, as luck would have it, that is precisely what happened. While the couple was getting their wedding photos done, the photographer spotted the actor and agreed to join in for a couple of shots.
Not only was this an incredibly kind gesture by the famous actor, but it would appear that the wife-to-be has little to no clue who she is standing next to.
Kevin Hart and Josh Gad Steal the Show
It is one thing for our unexpected wedding guests to eat our food, drink our alcohol, and be in our photographs. However, it is the next level for them to steal the spotlight on our special day. Fortunately for Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, two famous comedians, we can make an exception. These wedding crashers made a surprise appearance during this wedding's speeches, and they decided to hop on the mic and drop some hilarious speeches.
The couple's happy expression assured us that these two unexpected wedding guests were more than welcome to deliver excellent toasts in the bride and groom's honor despite their lack of an invitation.
They Were Playing "One Less Lonely Girl" When Justin Bieber Showed up
There is an old saying that if one speaks of the Devil, he will appear in person. Whether or not you believe Justin Bieber to be the Devil, the same seems to be true for him. He and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, were taking a midnight walk on the beach; they came across a wedding that they decided to hop in on. If you wonder why they decided to crash, it was because they were playing Bieber's "One Less Lonely Girl."
The bride and groom seemed ecstatic that the Biebs decided to show his face at their ceremony, and they were fans as they had his hit on their wedding playlist.
Lebron James Wins on the Court and at the Altar
Lebron James is one of the greatest basketball players of all time, and during the year 2012, he was on top of his game. After winning the NBA finals, he was asked to interview at a hotel. The basketball player decided to make an appearance after realizing that the hotel was booked out for this Jewish couple's special day. He spoke with the guests, got the party started, and stopped to take a photo with the couple.
The couple seems too happy in this photo that this basketball champion decided to crash their wedding celebrations. The members of the tribe are always glad to have Lebron in attendance.
Tom Hanks Is No Amateur at This
Tom Hanks is a big fan of nature. He enjoys walks at the beach and the park. And he also enjoys crashing weddings during these walks. While on one of his Central Park strolls, the famous actor ran into a wedding and decided to join in. You can see Tom Hanks kissing the bride on her hand while the soon-to-be husband looks on with pride.
It is said that Tom Hanks told the groom that he was a fortunate man, but we aren't sure that the bride won't run off with the actor.
Baywatch's David Hasselhoff Makes an Iconic Appearance
David Hasselhoff was one of the greatest stars of the television show Baywatch. With his stunning good looks, we aren't surprised that he was not invited to this wedding, but he still had the guts to make an appearance. This average couple was not expecting the Hollywood star's appearance, but it isn't like they would kick him out before they got a picture with the famous action star and singer.
This is one of those celebrities that younger audiences might not know for their filmography, but Hasselhoff is undoubtedly a household name that nearly anyone would recognize.
Justin Timberlake Had Multiple Weddings to Crash
On a resort in Mount Washington, a couple was getting married. However, when the bride's father saw the famous Justin Timberlake walking amongst them, he asked if he wouldn't mind joining the couple for a few photographs. The kind, and gentlemanly, Justin Timberlake agreed to take part in a few pictures. However, he explained that he couldn't stay long. The reason? Because Justin Timberlake had other weddings to crash that very same day.
Who knew that celebrity actors, actresses, singers, and comedians made a hobby out of crashing the weddings of their fans? With this knowledge, no wonder why there are so many celebrity wedding crashers.
Fastest Man Alive Usain Bolt Walks Into a Wedding
The fastest man alive is almost certainly Usain Bolt. Not only has he won numerous gold medals from the Olympic games for his inhuman speeds, but the man has broken all of the sprinting world records out there. With these insane speeds, it is no surprise that he would one day accidentally run into a wedding and end up crashing one. Fortunately, this couple seemed happy about his intrusion, even getting a photo of the athlete.
Although, the closer we look at the photo, we can see that the bride and groom are super excited about Bolt's appearance. However, the athlete appears to want to be anywhere else.
Gerard Butler Joins the Bridesmaids' Party
One of the most prolific action stars out there is Gerard Butler. The Scottish actor has been in everything from lackluster Gods of Egypt to the viral 300 films. While this actor might be known for his action feats, he is not well known for crashing bachelorette parties. Or at least he was not until today. Here he is captured taking a photo with a bride-to-be during her last hoorah before entering married life.
Usually, the bridesmaid party and the bachelorette party are women-only events, except for the strippers. However, we think every bridesmaid party can only be enhanced with Butler in attendance.
Two Skirts and One Keanu Reeves
Keanu Reeves might be the most likely star to end up at your wedding unexpectedly. During this Scottish wedding, the couple spotted the action superstar while he was out and about and asked him to join in on their wedding photos. Keanu, the nicest man in Hollywood, could not refuse their request. The wife, in particular, seems ecstatic about their fateful run-in with the star of the Matrix and John Wick franchises.
However, it would appear that even Keanu Reeves was unaware he would be making an appearance at their wedding, as his casual clothing and messy hair would seem to indicate.
Jennifer Hudson Interrupts a Wedding With a Performance
We have to say that if celebrities and famous singers are going to be crashing our weddings, then the least they could do is follow Jennifer Hudson's example and give the couple and their guests a performance. During this wedding in Dallas, Texas, the two grooms were unexpectedly surprised when Jennifer Hudson appeared and performed the song "I Still Love You" for them and their guests. This was all arranged by the hotel that was hosting their ceremony.
It would appear that many people seem to be having their weddings interrupted by celebrity guests at hotels. It might be a lesson only to have your future wedding at such venues.
Lil Nas X Dances the Bride Down the Aisle
Lil Nas X is a singer with many titles thrown his way, but the song that shot him to fame was "Old Town Road." This song not only cemented his career but has given him a solid fan base. When one of those fans married, the singer couldn't help but crash the wedding. However, he did not stop there. The rapper then danced the bride up the aisle to his hit "Old Town Road."
That is one way to crash a wedding. Not only will this wedding crasher be in the wedding photo, but he just stole the spotlight on that bride's special day.
Nothing Like a Hemsworth Brother as a Wedding Gift
Getting surprised visits on our wedding days might seem like an unnecessary additional pressure that no one wants on their special day. However, this surprise guest might be the exception to that rule. Liam Hemsworth was having a drink on the Gold Coast of Australia, but little did he know that he had just arrived early for this couple's matrimony ceremony. While Liam did not dress for the occasion, his good looks were good enough.
Look how happy the bride and groom are about running into the local celebrity famous for his roles in the Hunger Games movie series and being part of a brotherhood of actors.
