Some wedding crashers draw more attention than others.

President Donald Trump popped in on the Saturday night reception of newlyweds Kristen Piatkowski and Tucker Gladhill at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster Township, New Jersey, CNN reported.

In a guest’s video obtained by CNN and shared by political producer Ashley Killough, the president can be seen noting the “beautiful bride” and then kissing her on the cheek.

Partygoers enthusiastically welcomed him with yells of “looking good, Donald!” and “keep it up!” Then they broke into a group chant of “USA! USA!” as he left.

He also danced with the bride and groom, the New York Post reported, citing a guest.

A source told CNN that guests were not aware that Trump, who spent the weekend in New Jersey, was going to visit until Secret Service agents entered the room minutes beforehand. The president asked for the names of the newlyweds and later signed “Make America Great Again” hats for guests.

The president has done this kind of thing before. In February, he and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe dropped in on a wedding at the U.S. leader’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Outlets also noted that a discontinued brochure for the Trump National Golf Club once boasted that Trump might stop by at weddings.
