SANTA MONICA, Calif. - When Tom Hanks crashes your wedding… what do you do? It actually happened – and this time right here in Southern California.
Diciembre and Tashia Farries were getting married on Santa Monica beach over the weekend. A big moment, with their families and one-year-old son.
Suddenly there he was – Tom Hanks, walking up to say hello. He told them he’d been watching the wedding and thought they were beautiful and asked if he could take a photo with them.
Keep in mind, Tashia, as a private celebrity chef, is used to stars, but this took her, and everyone at the wedding aback!
It was a special moment in many ways. As a same-sex couple, it solidified the love they already feel for one another, but it also gave them pause for another reason.
Diciembre’s brother wasn’t at the wedding, he’d passed away. A photo of him sat on one of the chairs. When they found out the actor had the same birthday.
"It was like that was a message that he was there!" they explained.
So what did they do? They took photos with the star, chatted a while, and created lifelong memories of a truly unforgettable wedding!
