Uninvited Guests Show Up at Wedding

Noonan made it his mission to flirt with Katherine all night. "She is quite hard to get a hold of, because she kept moving. So I followed her for a while, and I didn't want to make it too obvious," said Noonan. "But I found her then by the wedding cake and then I made some small talk about the cake, and how beautiful it is to get married and I told her how beautiful she was, and that she was just my type and I was gonna keep an eye on her."

Katherine was taken a bit off-guard. "Well, you know what? I was dancing with my brother-in-law and then [Noonan] kind of worms his way in. And, oh gee, why not? You know? Good-looking guy," she said. "We started dancing and then he was kinda hitting on me in front of my dad and then he asked my sister if he could have my phone number. I love the attention, but then I realized that they were up to something."

Bridget's mom wasn't the only one who knew something was awry.

Physical Measures?

The best man, Luke Brown, and John's friends, Sam Navin and Mark Rankin, observed Wdowiak's and Noonan's strange behavior all night and came to the conclusion that they definitely had not been invited to the wedding. "I heard rumors of it. And we were sitting over in a table over there and everyone was coming around also saying, "Oh, there are these weird guys poking around. They are doing all this weird stuff," said Rankin. Not wanting to cause a scene, they confront Wdowiak while he is in the middle of eating his plate of food and ask him to leave before resorting to more physical measures.

That left our crasher, Noonan, alone to mingle with the guests, but not for long.

Bridget's uncle, Michael McCann, a lobbyist by day, sprung into action, confronting Noonan and even threatening to have him arrested for trespassing. McCann later told ABC News correspondent John Quinones, "We were gonna pounce on him!"

"Things started to get heated," Noonan said. "These guys looked like they were ready to hit me. I think two of them at least were ready to give me a good smack in the face."

Before the altercation turned physical, Quinones revealed our "What Would You Do?" experiment to the wedding guests.

'Two Thumbs Up'

The guests' reactions varied. Some, like McCann, had a feeling that something wasn't quite right, and that the crashers had to go, while others simply had no clue. It took the entire night for Pinzino, one of the first ones who spoke to the wedding crashers, to realize what was going on.

"I talked to both of them about what I did for a job and how he knew the groom. And I believed [Wdowiak], I guess because I'm naive. It was a lengthy conversation. He was believable. It's a beautiful wedding. I was kind of hoping he'd be on the dance floor later. I didn't really want to call him out."

Other women, even the bride's mother, Katherine Fico, echoed that sentiment, saying of Noonan, "I wasn't gonna kick him out, because I liked him."

It was a memorable night for Bridget, John and all of their friends and family. And Pinzino,the cousin of the bride, is already thinking about payback.

"This was unreal," she said. "On their wedding day? For them to spoof all of us? Bridget is clever. The two of them together are even better. Two, two thumbs up. But we'll get them at their anniversary party!"
