Tom Hanks crashed a couple's wedding photo shoot in Central Park



A couple got the surprise they will never forget while taking wedding photos in New York's Central Park on Sept. 24. 

Actor Tom Hanks just happened to be jogging through the park when he spotted bride Elisabeth and groom Ryan and decided to go over and congratulate them, according to Yahoo

After congratulating the newlyweds, Hanks posed for a few photos and kissed the bride's hand

Photographer Meg Miller told the Huffington Post that joggers in the park were mostly staying away from the shoot, but at one point she put her camera down when one guy got too close to the couple. 

As she waited for the guy to pass, he approached the couple, "took off his hat, just leaned right into the group and said 'Hi, I'm Tom Hanks," Miller told the Huffington Post. 

"He asked if they needed a wedding officiant because he is an ordained minister," Miller added.

Later on, Hanks posted a selfie with the couple to his Instagram account.

This isn't the first time Hanks has pulled a wedding crash, according to Yahoo. 

In 1993, when he was filming "Forrest Gump" Hanks got the attention of a woman in Beaufort, S.C. who was about to get married. 

He reportedly honked his horn at the bride until he got her attention. When she walked over to his car, Hanks hopped out, gave her a kiss on the cheek and wished her good luck.
