Tom Hanks Photobombs Bride’s Wedding Photos

When the wedding party was leaving their downtown Pittsburgh hotel to go to the ceremony, Tom Hanks popped up to surprise the bride.

Hanks, currently in Pittsburgh to film the movie “A Man Called Otto”, ran into the group while they were leaving the Fairmont Hotel. Grace Gwaltney was about to get into a waiting limousine when Hanks walked up behind her.

Rachel Rowland, a Pittsburgh-based wedding photographer, recalls the memorable encounter.

She tells PETAPIXEL, “We were leaving hotel (he was staying there while filming movie here), and getting on the limo when the groom literally ran up behind her,”

“We were all shocked, so I started snapping photos to capture some great candids. He replied, “My name is Tom Hanks!” He asked, “Can I take a picture with the bride?” And he just laughed and posed.

Hanks’s wife Rita Wilson was also there and Rowland claims she encouraged Rita to join the photos. She obliged.

Rowland claims that she tried her best to respond to the unexpected and got a few photos before Hanks left.

Rowland says, “We all lost ours.” “The bridesmaids shuffled from the limousine, and he took photos and congratulated everyone. Then he disappeared as quickly as he came in. It was so sweet and funny!

Gwaltney said that she was taken aback by the encounter in an interview with KCRA. She froze and wasn’t sure what to do. Gwaltney was so shocked by the encounter, she didn’t know if it was him.

She says, “It’s his sound, I believe.” “You can see him, and then he begins speaking… He was talking in mine and I’m thinking about Toy Story.”

Gwaltney said she couldn’t wait for her husband to hear about the encounter. As they were looking back at each other for their first glance, she whispered that she had just met Tom Hanks.

She laughs and says, “I had to sneak it in!”

Gwaltney says, “I’m sure that a lot other Pittsburgh brides would like for him to photobomb their photos.”

Gwaltney won’t have any trouble recalling her wedding day, it is certain.
