If you haven’t seen the movie Wedding Crashers, it’s an absolute classic.
Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn go from random wedding to random wedding and blow the roof off the receptions, meet some lovely ladies, and nobody has a clue who they are. It’s comedy gold.
However, these “wedding crashers” out of South Florida have a bit of a different story.
According to CBS Miami, a Fort Lauderdale bride and groom by the names of Courtney Wilson and Shenita Jones invited everybody they could to their gorgeous new 16,300 square foot mansion.
I mean this house is beyond a mansion, it’s a castle you’d see in the movies. I mean tennis courts, a pool, bowling alley, waterfall, hot tub, a gazebo, an 800-foot bar, a ton of land, the whole nine yards.
There was only one issue with the house though. They didn’t own (or even rent) the property.
Homeowner Nathan Finkel was shocked to see that there was about to be a gorgeous wedding held outside his house, as he never gave anybody permission to use it. When the entire wedding party showed up and started harassing him about using his house, he called the police. The cops showed up, and asked everybody to leave. Everybody left, and no arrests were made and no charges were filed for trespassing.
Here’s the 911 call:
“I have people trespassing on my property. And they keep harassing me, calling me. They say they’re having a wedding here and it’s God’s message.
I don’t know what’s going on. All I want is (for) it to stop. And they’re sitting at my property right at the front gate right now.”
According to Keith Poliakoff, attorney for Southwest Ranches, stated that Wilson posed as a buyer for the $5 million home. As he was looking to buy, he asked Finkel if he could hold the wedding in his backyard. Finkel declined the idea.
Poliakoff stated that Wilson and his bride assumed the house was vacant, so the couple decided to get a little bold and try to hold the wedding anyways…
