Mitt Romney is crashing a Lakewood wedding.

The Republican presidential contender’s motorcade rolled into a fundraiser Wednesday evening as a bride and groom were posing for pictures in the parking lot outside the hall in Lakewood.

Several guests in yarmulkes who were standing around turned their cameras away from the couple, and a few chased the motorcade around the corner.

A Romney aide says Romney met the bride and groom and took pictures with them before his fundraiser, which raised $1.5 million.

Guests to Romney’s event were advised they needed to leave promptly. The wedding was set to start at 6 p.m.
