Hanks was photographed navigating the gear as he personally escorted the bride and her father to the altar.

“Rita and I are going for a walk somewhere on our day off and just as we were getting into our car, in the condominium portion of the building, this wedding party walked up to us to get on the biggest cocktail liquor cruise bus I had ever seen,” Hanks explained adding that he was like, “Well, when the bride comes out, I’ll jump out and take a picture…well, she shows up, so yeah, I crashed her wedding photo.” ”
