Paparazzi hoping to snap some pics of Chelsea Clinton swapping vows from on high will do so at their own peril.

The Federal Aviation Administration has granted the former first daughter and her hubby-to-be, Marc Mezvinsky, a VIP temporary flight restriction covering Rhinebeck, N.Y., ensuring shutterbugs will not be taking to the sky in choppers to buzz what's undoubtedly the biggest wedding of the year.

Maybe this is a job for those party-crashing Salahis.

A spokeswoman for the FAA confirmed the restriction will apply to all aircraft other than commercial, military and law enforcement or emergency flights. It will be in force starting at 7 p.m. Saturday to 7:30 a.m. Sunday and will cover space from ground level up to 2,000 feet in altitude and include a radius of 1.5 nautical miles.

So unless the paps have a spy plane or a satellite orbiting the affair, they're going to be out of luck snapping photos of the Clintons and their A-list guests.

"Requests for TFRs are put into FAA by various federal agencies or public entities and then each request is evaluated and made the determination whether it would be necessary to have a temporary flight restriction," the FAA's Arlene Salac told E! News. "Each case is taken on an individual basis as far as how they evaluate them."

And there's no doubt some VIPs have RSVP'd.
