OKLAHOMA — A Facebook post is warning brides and grooms in eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas about a certain wedding crasher.

“So the brides could be aware if they were having a wedding to watch for someone and if she showed up to call the police,” wedding planner Debra Severson said.

Severson only has one photo of the uninvited guest who robbed the gift table of one of her clients.

“We noticed that the brides maids purses had been raided the flower gift was gone the ring bearer gift was gone.”

April Gushing says the same woman went to her wedding in Fort Smith. The photo doesn’t show her face, but April says the woman is wearing the exact same outfit.

Bride Tamaray Kemper is from Wister, Oklahoma. She says the gift table at her wedding was also raided.

Police hope that wedding parties will be more aware, and be able to call them quickly if the wedding crasher makes another appearance.

“You didn’t have to steal from, for example my elderly neighbor, or from people who were giving what they could to a starting couple…because you saw our faces on our gift table pictures. Like I said, we’re praying for you,” Gushing said.
