Posted on August 16 by Molly Tully

Well, we now know who the wedding crashers were at a recent New Jersey wedding!

Carly Wolfson and Ritchie Barry were on a FIRST DATE…and decided to crash Mike and Karen Tufo’s wedding in Sparta.

They danced on the dance floor all night long, photobombed SO many pictures and even left a note that included a Polaroid of the couple and a dollar attached—”buck for luck!”

A newlywed couple’s worst nightmare, right? Not for the Tufos! They wanted to track down the crashing couple to shake their hands and buy them a drink.

“We laughed. We’re like ‘omg we got wedding crashed that’s funny,’” Karen Tufo said. “I wanna shake their hands and tell them good job.”

“I didn’t think he was gonna go through with it,” Wolfson said. “And he came out all dressed up so I was like ‘alright guess we’re doing this.’”

Wolfson says they picked out wedding outfits and even created a story that included an engagement ring.

“I walked in and was like ‘oh there’s no seat for us at our table,’ so they put a seat down for us at the Best Man’s table,” Wolfson said.

The two avoided the bride and groom all night—and their prank wasn’t discovered until after the end of the wedding, when the Tufos read the card and guests starting putting the pieces together about the mystery couple.

Karen Tufo says if the crashing couple ends up getting married, she’ll crash their wedding!

Now, that’s a good sport if I ever heard of one!
