The bride’s wedding photographer, Rachel Rowland, also detailed the encounter to KCRA. 

“We all lost it,” Rowland said. “The bridesmaids shuffled out of the limo, and he posed with photos and congratulated everyone, and then as fast as he popped in, he was gone. It was just so sweet and fun!”

Rowland shared with the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette that the bridal party “started screaming and were pretty much in shock” after the encounter.

Gwaltney said she knew it was Hanks right when he started talking. She confessed that she recognized his voice.

“You see him and then he starts speaking and he was like, ‘You look so beautiful. I’m so happy for you.’ He was talking in my ear,” Gwaltney shared. “I was thinking of ‘Toy Story.'”

The bride detailed in her interview with the local Pittsburgh news outlet that she shared the news with her husband, Luke, before they exchanged vows.

“We had a moment before the ceremony, and we prayed, and we were holding hands and going back-to-back so we wouldn’t see each other,” she said. “‘Luke, I just met Tom Hanks.’ I had to sneak that in there.”

The bride shared that she is a fan of Hanks and knew he was in town filming his new movie, “A Man Called Otto.” She shared that in her opinion, Hanks is “the perfect person” to play the role.

“He is filming his new movie, and my sister and I were just talking about how much we love the book that he is filming the movie for, so it was kinda like full-circle,” Gwaltney said. “It was honestly like crazy because we were just talking about him.”
