As far as wedding crashers go, it doesn’t get much bigger than this.
Gerald Papa and Jenna Buchholtz got married at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, last week, and received the surprise of a lifetime when President Trump decided to join the party.
TMZ reported that Trump “flew in on his Marine One chopper” to greet guests unannounced, then “shook hands, posed for pics, and told the crowd to take care of the happy couple.”
He even gave the bride a kiss on the cheek, shook the groom’s hand, and told everyone to, “Take good care of them, folks,” … and the crowd absolutely ate it up!
“We love you!” guests at the wedding can be heard shouting.
“Oh my God,” one guest can be heard saying as the President walks up the stairs.

This isn’t the first time Trump has crashed a wedding as President, showing up unannounced at Bedminster in June of 2017 at the ceremony for Kristen Piatkowski and Tucker Gladhill.
The guests at that wedding were loving it as well, as Trump signed several attendees’ “Make America Great Again” hats, complimented the “beautiful bride,” and left with the crowd chanting, “USA! USA!” (RELATED: Donald Trump Crashed A Wedding At The Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.)

A brochure for the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster mentions that the President may very well pop into a wedding reception being held on the grounds.
“If he is on-site for your big day, he will likely stop in & congratulate the happy couple,” the brochure reads.

Trump was attending a weekend getaway with the First Family before he returned to the White House on Sunday, where he and First Lady Melania will prepare to host a picnic to honor military families on the 4th of July.
That picnic will feature live music by American Idol finalist Jax, who said the invitation to perform at the White House will be “an honor.” (RELATED: American Idol Finalist Says It’ll Be An Honor to Perform at White House – It’s About Patriotism.)
There’s so much to celebrate under the Trump presidency and it looks like the Commander-in-Chief is doing just that, hosting military family picnics and crashing weddings.
