Tom Hanks surprised a bride during her wedding photo shoot – and left her completely stunned.
The Castaway actor, 65, snuck up on the beautiful bride as she snapped snaps from her bridal shower.
The Hollywood star gave bride, Grace Gwaltney, a pat on the back as she posed for her wedding photos at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Lifting the lid on the magic moment, the stunned bride admitted she thought she was “seeing things” as she turned to see Tom standing behind her.
“He said, ‘Hey! I’m Tom Hanks. I’d like to take a picture with you’ and I froze immediately and just looked around,” she said People.
“I didn’t know what to do,” she added.
The amazed bride went on to joke that she felt like Toy Story’s Woody had come to her wedding party as she gushed over the actor’s recognizable voice.
“You see him and then he starts talking and he’s like, ‘You look so beautiful. I’m so happy for you.’ “He spoke in my ear. I thought of Toy Story,” she said.
Wedding photographer Rachel Rowland, who watched the special moment unfold before her eyes, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the bridal party erupted in shrieks when they saw the Oscar winner.
“They started screaming and were pretty shocked,” the photographer revealed.
Rachel went on to reveal that Tom didn’t overstep his greeting and disappeared as quickly as he appeared.
The wedding photographer described the actor as “cute” and “funny” as she recalled the incredible moment.

“We all lost it. The bridesmaids shuffled out of the limousine and he posed for photos and congratulated everyone and then he was gone as fast as he got in. It was just so cute and fun,” she added.
Tom was in town at the time filming the upcoming movie A Man Called Otto.
It’s not the first time the actor has crashed a fan wedding as he’s now had at least three ceremonies under his belt.
