Something old, something new and someone surprising.

A bridal party in Pittsburgh received quite the surprise when Tom Hanks asked to take a photo with them on the special day. According to KCRA Channel 3, the bride, Grace Gwaltney, and her group were leaving the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh when the Oscar winner crashed their shoot.

"Hey! My name is Tom Hanks," he reportedly said. "Can I take a photo with the bride?"

Wedding photographer Rachel Rowland told the outlet that the impromptu moment seemed to have happened within a flash—a camera flash that is.

"We all lost it," Rachel recalled. "The bridesmaids shuffled out of the limo, and he posed with photos and congratulated everyone, and then as fast as he popped in, he was gone. It was just so sweet and fun!"

It seems to be somewhat of a habit for the Forrest Gump star, who has crashed fans' weddings before. Back in 2016, he snapped a sweet selfie with a bride and groom in Central Park.

Tom Hanks' Best Roles

While many may be wondering what Tom is doing in Pittsburgh this time around, the actor is there for a new project titled A Man Named Otto, per KCRA Channel 3.

Per Variety, the film—based on Fredrik Backman's novel A Man Called Ove—tells the story of a stern widowed man with a tight set of rules for his neighbors. After Otto (played by Tom) finds himself befriending his neighbors, the grumpy character then embarks on a transformation.

The cast includes Mariana Treviño, Rachel Keller and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo. With that in mind, Pittsburgh natives can continue to keep their eyes peeled for a potential celebrity sighting.
