A same-sex couple in Los Angeles has had their wedding crashed by none other than acting legend Tom Hanks who decided to surprise the brides on their special day.

The 65-year-old actor who was jogging through the park reportedly spotted the wedding and decided to approach the couple to congratulate them after watching the celebration from afar. 

According to Fox LA, the brides, Diciembre and Tashia Ferries were shocked to see one of the worlds most popular and recognizable film stars with their guests as they shouted, “There’s Tom Hanks!”


Speaking to Fox about the wedding crasher, Tashia said that Hanks was super supportive and said that it was “one of the most beautiful ceremonies” that he’d “ever seen.”

“Our wedding was already a dream to me. To finally marry her – this was our day. And everybody we love was there, and … Tom Hanks just walks up! Out of all days, out of all people, he walked on the beach today. It was meant to be,” Diciembre explained.

Hanks, always the crowd-pleaser, took several pictures with the couple and their one-year-old son.

Diciembre also added that Hanks’ presence at the wedding (albeit unannounced) made them feel accepted as a same-sex couple, “For us to be two women – yes it’s 2021, but it’s just unfortunately not accepted everywhere yet – but it’s like he didn’t even see that.”
